I received an email, reproduced below, from the Dove World Outreach Center, which originated the International Burn a Koran Day. Pastor Jones reports that their bank has called their mortgage and their insurance company has canceled their policy.
While Pastor Jones did not state a cause for those actions, I assume that the bank and insurer came under pressure from CAIR. I hope that Landmark Legal or some other firm will take the case on and litigate pro bono and seek immediate discovery. Nobody should be punished, by public or private agency, for telling the truth.
I would prefer to see the Koran read not burned. It is only by reading Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence that we discover how evil Islam is. Burning the Koran is a symbolic act which draws attention to its contents. I hope that the call to burn the Koran will encourage you to read it.
What does the Koran contain that makes Christians hate it? It defames Jesus Christ, denying his paternity, divinity, crucifixion & resurrection. It curses Christians and it declares perpetual war against them.
That does not bother you because you are an atheist? Does the subjugation of women as chattel property bother you? Does divine approval of wife beating bother you?
But you are a male, so that's no problem; how about the prohibition of drinking & gambling, does that bother you? My principal objection to Islam is its inculcation of hatred and incitement of violence. After the accursed abomination 9/11, that should be sufficient for any rational person.
I am not in a financial position to aid the mission of Pastor Jones and his congregation. If you are, I hope that you will consider that worthy cause. All I can do is contribute a little publicity, and I am doing that right now.
