Do you realize that if this Imam gets his way and sharia law is adopted in America, gays will not only be denied the right to marry, they would be either castrated or executed? And we want to allow people like that to build a mosque near ground zero?
RPIYU, August 15 2010:
I’ll tell you what. The day that they allow a Christian church to be built in Mecca is the day that I will change my position and support the building of the ground zero mosque.

Burning the Qur’an will undoubtedly offend some Muslim extremists who already hate America anyway. But in this country, thankfully there is such as thing as the First Amendment. Burning the Qur’an is no different than burning the American flag, and the courts have ruled that flag burning is protected free speech. Of course, many Islamic extremists come from places where freedom of speech is nonexistent, but nevertheless that is no excuse for violence. They can believe in that book of fairytales all they want, but our system of freedoms is more important than what some Muslim in another country thinks or does.
So I am calling for that Florida church to go ahead with burning the Qur’an. I hope that they don’t succumb to pressure to abdicate their freedom of speech. Our American freedoms are more important than the Qur’an, the Bible, or any other book.
