    Interesting that there is so much controversy over this church's plan to burn the Koran but there was no such uproar when Muslims in Gaza burned Bibles and destroyed every cross they could find.

    You asked, "How would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot and a religious Pastor were to broadcast they will burn the Wholy Bible in your religion?"

    I wouldn't care.

      Promise not to squish them up on the way, and there's enough to share.

      I hate squished marshmallows. And none of those mini things, they have to be full sized!

      Just sayin'

    Hello my neighbors of the world... This act of the pastor is a discriminating act which violates my rights and all Muslims rights in America..Not only that, it is Black mail.. The Pastor says he will not burn the Korans if the Mosque will not be built there.. He should be inprisoned for 10 years for a threat like that.. How would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot and a religious Pastor were to broadcast they will burn the Wholy Bible in your religion? Am I right? So the ones that agree with this sick minded man of unfaithfulness.. Good luck to you all.. Burn you own bibles while you at it for it does not do anything to change anything.. the words of the Koran, and the faithfulness of the religion and the people whom follow it faithfully are the peaceful creatures from God...Oh, any man that is a man of God would never insult God like this man has done and the wannabe followers. This is my seconds of fame and I do not enjoy it for the subject is sad.. God be with all whom believe in God..... Good day

    The politicians have had their say, but where are the Christian leaders and what do they have to say about the burning of the Kuran? We need to hear from Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and those that have insight from a Christian point of view. This is very serious stuff and we need some good guidance, not from politicians. The Christian leaders of American will have much more influence with the pastor from Florida.

    IT SEEMS AMERICA IN BENT ON LOOSING A WAR WITH MUSLIMS. AS THE SUPERPOWER IN ITS HEY DAYS, SHE CAN'T PREVENT A FEW MUSLIM FANATICS FROM HUMILIATING THE ENTIRE WESTERN CIVILIZATION BY BUIDING A "MATTRY's SHRINE" AT GROUND ZERO, HOW WILL THEY MANAGE AN ARMY OF SUICIDE PILOTS FLYING PLANES WITH NUCLEAR BOMBS FROM ATTACKING THE US??? WITH AN APOLOGETIC PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE< AMERICA IS OBVIOUSLY MANIFESTING WEAKNESS.

    With or without the Florida burning, I am combusting my copy of the koran but also adding the ot/torah, nt and book of mormon to the pyre. Everyone should do the same. We will call it the Day the Angelic Myths and Greatest of Con Jobs Died. Alleluia!!!!!!!

      That kid's voice really starts to irritate, by about the 3rd minutes. You talk about fingernails on a chalk board. Sheesh!

    I AM SO TIRED TO HEARING ON THE NEWS EVERY HOUR ABOUT THE BURNING OF THE QURAN IN Florida on Saturday You continue to call on person after person from the administration and other public officiials with everyone agreeing that there is NOTHING WE CAN DO about the situation that it is freedom of speech, etc,

    WELL, THAT IS INCORRECT. SHAME ON YOU AND THE OTHER MAJOR NETWORKS FOR NOT DOING WHAT YOU CAN DO AND SIMPLY DON'T COVER THE EVENT. THAT IS WHAT WE THE PUBLIC WANT AND YOU, AND YOU ALONE, CAN DO IT.

      While it might get annoying being constantly bombarded by the news about the Qur'an burning, it is a catch 22 with the media buzz. One side complains that the problem is being perpetuated by the media and that no one would have ever noticed without the media's blitz, and the other side says that leaving the issue alone would be just as problematic and could have potentially created a larger media buzz with the radical population finding out.
