August 31, 2010 1:57am CST
I was surfing in the net, suddenly I found this new "We will burn the koran in 11 September"!! What does this mean ?And what is the purpose ? Disrespecing others' believes is a shame on a humain being, we all know that the Koran is the most precious book of muslims ,so why are they going to burn it ??!!Do they just want to hurt 1.5 milliards of people ?? and why exactly the Koran ?? What do you know about this ? what do you think of it ??

That attitude is despicable I am Catholic but I do respect other religions. I myself would feel affronted if I see something that is sacred to other people being mutilated or treated with disrespect. I think it would be an insult on humanity.

We should avoid all kind of disrespect through other people especially if it concerns their believes ..

While I don't condone such an act and see it as immature and really pretty senseless, I did log on to the website that's sponsering this.On the right hand side there's a tab that reads "10 reasons to burn a Koran". This might inetrest some of you here. Here's the link: http://www.doveworld.org/

I took a look at the link and those reasons that they're showing there arent't making any sense at all, and I can't believe that it is a christian guy who is behind this because, as I know, christian people respect other religions and would never offend their blessed believes like that.

I think we should respect all religions whether we agree with them or not. I will not be involved in any such thing. If we hate, then we have not come to know God, for God is love and He is the one that will repay each one of us for the deeds we do or fail to do.

Well said my friend, you're right. God is the only one who can repay each one of us.. and as humains we should respect all religions whatever is our religion .. Thanks for your response and happy Myloting.

I condemn it as bigotry, but I accept it for the same reason I accept people burning American flags: the only alternative is compromising the principle of free speech, and before you see a ban on people burning the Koran in the US, you'd see a ban on people reading it.

As a Christian I think this is a deplorable and stupid act all the best urban

This is the perfect attitude to take. Having different religions can not stop us from respecting each other because, after all, we are humains! and humains do not disrespect each other like that! Thanks for stoping by and sharing your point of you.

You know Yone I am with you. Two wrongs dont make a right! I served the military as a medic during Vietnam and Desert Storm era. I remember being 18 when I entered. Prior I was a nurses asst in a nursing home. It was a Catholic nursing home. I was Protestant. When Mother Superior did not see me in Mass one morning she asked me why? I replied I am sorry Mother I am Protestant. She stood back and looked at me and said "Ok it is ok. There is a protestant church across the street you go there for one hour." So she was not as concerned for me not being Catholic as she wanted me to remain good and loyal to our beliefs and religion. (Actually I was scared she would fire me cause I was not catholic LOL) As I went in the Military I came across all kinds of cultures from different people from different states and Puerto Rico. I never met a person I could not get along with or respect or downright love. As I got older, my youngest son come to me and asked me to homeschool him. This meant doing the Basic Christian beliefs along with regular daily classes. I relearned to use my Bible for basic tasks in all of his classes. It actually made me work harder to learn. As I did this, I remembered a muslim movie Had seen and thought about the Koran. I remember talking to my son's counselor and had remarked I was going to read the Koran. The counselor told me she had done a paper in her college years and it was one of the hardest books to read and she wished me well. I sincerely am trying to read it. I want to know other people's beliefs and cultures and have always been open to learning. I can't imagine Burning the Christian Bible (which has been tried before through history) But if we are supposed to be the country of peace and kindness then I have to agree with you no I do not believe there should be a burning of the Qur'an (Koran) Bless you darlin the people have struggled enough, and I for one would like to get up and see good news instead of purposely trying to expose bad.

I am a Christian and I respect all other religions, as long as other religions respect mine. Who wants to burn the koran? A few people or a large crowd? If it is an official burning,than that is disrespect, but if it is only a small fraction of society, then they should be ignored. I mean, there are lots of other things that happen and nobody says anything about them. Korans can be bought as many as you want, I believe, so it is everybody's business what he does with his own personal one. Don't you agree? Provocation is for those who want to be provoked, not for people who can think. Ignoring this kind of things are the best solution, it is no need to be shocked or anything.

I find book burnings very ignorant gesture, unless it is twilight series...just kidding. Many people make a big deal out of the bible and Qur'an and how it is holy but the book itself is not what is holy it is studying it and applying the lessons of right and wrong, of mercy and sympathy for others a book is just a book the ideas inside and how you use them is what matters.

The Koran is the equivilent to muslims as the Bible to Christians. I agree with you, this is very disrespectful. We live in a country that was built on religious freedoms, but it seems since the terrorist attacks of 911, our "religious freedom" goes for those who dont offend the faith of a Christian nation (if you can even call us that anymore). I myself am a proud follower of Jesus Christ, and my husband recently obtained a copy of the Koran before deployment. I had the chance to skim through it a couple of times (it's a BIG book) and there were some very troubling things that stuck out to me. I dont doubt for a min that the muslim religion is violent, no matter how much they may deny. I'm sorry but if the entire basis of your faith is to convert those who believe otherwise and if not consider them infidels and "kill the infidel" there is nothing good that could come of that. However I know many muslims that are great people they just follow a violent religion. And the fact remains that we can not as a nation claim religious freedom if we are not extending that to EVERY walk of faith.
