What Are We? A Nation of Five Year Olds?

Seriously. I feel a mom moment coming on. Don't make me pull this car over.

That some idiot crack pot is planning to burn copies of the Quran makes me shake my head. That he claims it is being done "in love" to win Muslim souls to Jesus makes me wonder if perhaps a little psych consult might not be in order.

But what makes me want to pull off the belt and start switching some legs are the reactions of some Americans.

"But they burn Bibles!" "They don't allow our churches in their countries!"

Wah wah wah. Y'all sound like five year olds crying because your brother touched you.

Yeah, and that is why they are them and we are America people.


Go take down the flag you probably got hanging up in your yard. Take down that yellow one too. If you are pro book burning, you are NOT upholding American ideals and principles.

We do not base our moral high ground on what "they" do. It is based on what we do.

If you want to burn holy books because they do, you are no better than they are.

If you want to ban holy houses because they do, you are the same as them.

If you want to hate people based on decisions their government makes, you are no better than they are.

Seriously, stop and listen to what you are saying. What are the logical consequences of these actions you are encouraging?

What are your children hearing you say? That Christians hate? That it is okay to destroy the books of another religion?

Everyone go to your time-out corner now and just think about what you are saying!

Thor sez: All I said was I think a second breakfast isn't such a bad thing.
