Default 7 U.N Workers Killed by Afghans in response to Koran Burning.

Afghan official: 5 die, 46 wounded in Quran burning protest in Kandahar in south - The Washington Post

I of course blame the Afghans for the killings. But I am ashamed of the Dove Outreach Center. If you recall they were the same church where there Rev. Terry Jones called for an International Koran Burning Day. Later he backed down but it looks like the church went through with it anyways. Idiots. I don't care that they burned a Koran. Burn as many as you like I don't care. Not even as a Christian do I care if people burn Bibles which I'm
sure they are doing. Do I want people to burn Bibles? Of course not but I'm
not going to kill them because they do. The problem with the Dove Outreach Center isn't so much that they burned the Koran. It's that they
made such a big deal out of it. Why? Because they wanted a reaction
and a reaction they did get. Now because of their immaturity 7 people
are now dead. Again, I blame the Afghans for the killing and in no way
am I excusing their actions. Still what the Dove Outreach Center did
was very selfish and in no way Christian at all.

I'm sorry, but I dated a Muslim and it's the worst sign of disrespect (other than making fun of Mohammad) to destroy/burn a Koran. To them it is a symbol of hate from the west. I don't care who did it, it rightly enraged a lot of people, some of which acted very viciously, others who didn't (but the media never shows).

I don't support hate crimes. Do you?

Agree.. Hate crime is in itself, a senseless killing (though I'm not sure if there's any other killing that makes sense).

There's nothing right about killing someone over a book. That said, Jones is a moron for doing what he did and really hope it bites him in the ass somehow.

Well he sort of asked for it... Why would you do such a thing?
I think there's nothing right in religion and especially not when it makes you kill people, but I'm probably an extremist on the other side of the line

I mostly agree with this. Some days I wish I could move to different planet, one that isn't filled with people who want to fight and/or kill each other over folklore.

And you apparently need to believe in some sort of God first.
No seriously, if heaven is based upon faith in a higher being rather than based upon being a good person, I don't even want to go there.

@ Janszoon; From where I stand, I don't see much good coming from religion. I'm sure it's different for the persons who do attend to a certainl religion, but to me... On a big scale it's causing wars, on a personal scale it usually causes unpleasant discussions .
