Dove World Outreach Center and their misguided plan to burn the Qur’an on 9/11, then you probably don’t support our troops. Why is that?
General David Patraeus says the Qur’an burning could put the lives of our soldiers in jeopardy.
The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.Gen. David Petraeus said the Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.
“It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort,” Gen. Petraeus said in an interview. “It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community.”
So, for all you Conservative Christians who think Dove World Outreach Center has a great idea, let me tell you, they don’t. It’s stupid and it’s not Christ-like. “Rev.” Terry Jones preaches a gospel of hate which is incompatible with the biblical Gospel of Love. I can’t seem to think of any stories of Christ calling for anger towards his enemies. In fact, one of the last words on the cross was “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34)
