Not Spike's Right Thing, but still Right

A small country church "offended" some Muslims by posting a note on their sign that says "the Koran should be flushed".

Here is a quote:
"Seema Riley, a Muslim, who was born in Pakistan and reared in New York, was one of those upset by the sign.She moved to Rutherford County for the "small town friendly" atmosphere, she said. When she saw the sign on the side of the highway Saturday she felt angered and threatened."We need a certain degree of tolerance," said Riley. "That sign doesn't really reflect what I think this county is about.""

Hey Mrs. Riley, newsflash for you: your book says that you should kill the unbelievers right? So, why should an unbeliever of Allah be offending you with a few plastic letters? Just go kill him like you are supposed to.

Naturally I like to see a stupid liberal quoted and this story provides an academic:"Putting such a sign in a public place is an un-American example of intolerance, of aggressive disrespect for other citizens' deeply held views," said Donald Searing, Burton Craige Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "This is the sort of attitude and action that seriously endangers the liberty which lies at the heart of our democracy. It is also a good reminder that just because one may have the legal right to say something, doing so may not be morally, socially or politically desirable."

To Mr. Searing I issue an intellectual challenge: analyze the Koran for yourself and decide if it holds Jesus in a higher regard than Mohammed. Once you see the discrepancies between what is embraced and what is ignored you will question the Muslim faith as well. I would also submit to Mr. Searing that our liberty is already being undermined by selfish activists and judicial legislating. To say that Mr. Lovelace's sign is contributing is nothing short of absurd.

Now to the man responsible for the sign, Mr. Lovelace's quote:"If we stand for what is right and for God's word and for Christianity then the world is going to condemn us and so right away when I got a complaint I said 'well somebody's mad, somebody's offended, so we must be doing something right.'"Mr. Lovelace is doing what his God has told him to. To you I say AMEN BROTHER! If I'm ever down your way on Sunday morning I'll make sure I stop by.
