Burning the Koran

Liberals are brain damaged. I don't mean that in general; I mean every single liberal is brain damaged. The extent of their mental impairment is at once simplistically easy to understand yet impossible to fathom. It's a paradox. While I can never understand why they think the way they do, it's too easy to predict what they will think.

We have still another example of liberal hypocrisy surrounding the FL pastor who plans to burn copies of the Koran on this year's anniversary of 9/11. Liberals are outraged at such a thing. To say they condemn the practice would be putting it mildly. They are denouncing it in the worst way. They cry that it is offensive, that it is unnecessarily provocative, and that it puts our soldiers in further jeopardy of retaliation. I say that liberals don't give a whit about any of these things.

Doesn't anyone remember all the controversy just a couple of decades ago surrounding flag burning? Much to the glee of liberals everywhere, the Supreme Court ruled that burning the American Flag was protected by the “free speech” clause of the First Amendment (Texas v. Johnson). I didn't hear any liberals then whining over how offensive it was. Instead, I remember them holding flag burning protests all over the US. They were happy to give offense. Why, some seemed to even consider it an act of patriotism to burn a flag. And do you think they even cared about how American soldiers felt?

Burning the flag, of course, would qualify as political speech. However, liberals have no qualms over offending religious folks as well. Er... I should qualify that by saying liberals have no qualms about offending Christians. Do you remember the “art” exhibit known as “Piss Christ”? What could be more offensive then photographing a crucifix in a jar of urine? Oh, I know: it would photographing a crucifix in a jar of urine and then subsidizing the “artist” with tax payer dollars via the National Endowment for the Arts!

I can't say I agree with the burning of Korans in FL but I absolutely refuse to take seriously the empty objections put forth from liberals. Since when do they care about religious tolerance? Since when do they worry about free speech being offensive? Can you remember any similar furor over a Bible burning ever? Once again, it's easy to see what's going on: liberals hate America and Christians so they don't object to burning flags or Bibles. However, when someone burns the religious text which happens to be used by radical Muslims who are killing Americans, then they get their panties all in a bunch. The thing I can't figure out is why liberals feel this way.
