I think all the attention paid to this idiot in Florida just encourages other nuts. It is also totally out of proportion to the importance of the event. WE should have all ignored this fool.
Pastor bashing didn't buy peace
BY DAVID B. HARRIS, CITIZEN SPECIAL SEPTEMBER 10, 2010
What do Stephen Harper, Barack Obama, Gen. David Petraeus, Canadian Defence Minister Peter MacKay and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have in common?
They each need to get a grip on themselves the next time they want to whack a wacky pastor. Each sacrificed valuable resources to condemn and plead with once-aspiring Koran-griller, Florida Pastor Terry Jones, a bizarre fourth-string in the evangelical band. Congregation size: 50, on an inflationary day.
Yes, by now all agree: a nutty fringe leader was compromising social cohesion, foreign relations and military security with grotesquely silly, gratuitous and hurtful plans for a Koranic cook-off.
