I wasn't going to give Reverend Terry Jones any more publicity than he's already getting, but since I was asked my opinion on him at lunch, I might as well express it here, too.
I think anyone who's visited Cinema Steve more than once knows the level of contempt I have for the Muslim extremists who threaten to kill anyone who they don't agree with or don't like. It's a contempt that approaches hatred. It's only slightly more severe than the contempt I have for other terrorist and fascist movements, because the Muslims assholes--more often than not--seem to have the tacit, if not outright, approval of their social and governmental institutions. (Sure, the Pakistani and Saudi dictators get upset when the filthy dogs turn on them once in a while, but for the most part they're happy to fund and encourage their psychopathy.)
But that contempt extends to book-burning assholes like the Reverend Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center. He is no better than some demented Muslim imam who encourages the murder of cartoonists, because he, too, is trying to destroy ideas through violent means.
What is needed is more reading, not less. Banning and/or burning books is NEVER the right answer. Thankfully, Reverend Terry Jones represents a tiny minority of Americans. His asinine "Burn a Koran Day" this September 11th will appeal to few outside his demented little flock of 50. Unlike state-sponsored Muslim "holy men" who call for murder and mayhem from their platforms in Iran and Saudi Arabia--and whose see their calls answered all around the world--no respectable American has done anything but condemn Jones and his barbaric behavior.
(Although I feel dirty for being on the same side as Obama and his mouth-pieces, here I am. Thank you, Reverend Jones, you degenerate, syphilitic waste of space. It's just a shame that the Obamatons are so morally corrupt that they will call Koran-burning "un-American", yet support the burning of the American flag as acceptable political statements. Each is equally disgusting in their symbolism.)
