Koran Burning Opposed

Your Voice of Reason hereby condemns in the strongest possible terms the proposed Koran burning by the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla. While I would defend to the death the church's right to burn the Koran as a matter of free speech, the proposed act is wrong-headed and unduly provocative. It is insulting to non-radical Muslims as well as the radical.

As Christians, it should be our goal to share the message of Jesus Christ and offer Muslims an alternative to Islam that includes a personal relationship with our Creator. We have a duty to seek conversion, not confrontation. Confrontation will chase Muslims away, not draw them to the truth of God's Word.

The act of provocation may be the exercise of a right, but it is wrong.

Your statement is a message of hope.
It is genuine and heartfelt message that comes from the heart.

Take it from this Muslim US veteran, we are equally loyal and patriotic American like next door neighbor.

No, we are not evil like a snake hiding in the grass awaiting its prey.

We not strangers either. And for those who still feel Muslims are strangers, Remember one thing:

True Christians should take a heed from the words of Jesus, peace be upon him who told his followers, " honor strangers as I was stranger in my youth."

Than you David for your true Christian love you have shown in your comment
