Pastor Terry Jones protest by burning Koran in Dearborn, Michigan Today

Pastor Terry Jones has gained a lot of attention over the past few months, first when he planned on burning the Koran on the anniversary of 9-11 last September, now yet again planning on burning the Koran in Dearborn today.  I am all for freedom of speech, but when it can potentially bring harm to others, and cause more division, I feel that this is neither American or displaying the love of Christ.

 This is a hot button issue, I have seen and heard it everywhere today including a dialogue on one of my friends facebook pages. Below is a copy of the dialogue and the names and faces are blurred in consideration of others.

There were multiple responses to this status post, some comical, many religious, and much more.

The conversation stopped there and as you see I had to put my two cents in. This has a direct effect on me, being that I have several family member in the area, live near the capital, and am  a Christian myself.  Personally I believe that he is misguided, therefore I am praying for Him. In this time where, Christians are suppose to be focusing on what Christ did, our image, yet again is being marred by a Christian radical who is not having any consideration for others.

To my muslim friends out there, we may not share the same faith, but I love you all. Christianity teaches that love conquers all things.  His actions do not reflect my feelings as a Christian towards my muslim brothers and sisters.

Praying for Compassion, Peace, and Love,

  1. You know there are extremists in every form of organized religion. Pastor Jones is just an example of Christian extremists. He is putting our armed forces in harm's way.
