A couple of students asked me today what my opinion was of the upcoming Koran-burning planned at that church in Florida, and I thought my readers here would like to know my thoughts on the subject. I heard a comment on the radio on the way to work this morning that helped encapsulate my views on the topic:
It's not very Christian. It's not very patriotic. It seems like nothing more than hatred. Yes, it's legal for them to burn Korans, but it's not "right"--kinda like building an "Islamic Center" near Ground Zero. And no way should any level of government prevent their doing so, in either situation.
