Gee...I wonder where the orders to burn the Bibles REALLY came from??? Could it be from our MUSLIM president??? I am telling you (and everyone else who can hear me) that OBAMA IS A MUSLIM, and the truth is going to come out eventually. When this happens, I am going to hold a press conference and yell "I TOLD YOU SO" from the rooftops.

that's an odd one. i can understand them not returning them to this church for the reasons stated in the article but why not send them somewhere else? don't see why they have to burn them.

They possibly could have sent them to a military base in the U.S. I do agree that burning them was pretty extreme.

extreme and I am offended. Maybe we should plan a terrorist attack?

well it is the military. not really renowned for imaginative thinking. the thinking goes like this: 1 - trash gets burnt. 2 - unwanted bibles count as trash. 3 - only solution is burn them.

That's right, laglen, military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there. This could put our military in danger. I understand the reasoning, especially in that country.

well i doubt it was meant to be offensive, or they even thought it might be. it looks like classic dimwitted behaviour. they needed to get rid of all these bibles and considered option A - return them to the church that sent them, dismissed this and went for option B - stick them in the trash. the sensible option C - send em somewhere else for some reason wasn't thought of.

Thats not what she meant. The military are not chickens, I think the issue there is why make waves. And this is coming from the Pentagon

"'Troops at posts in war zones are required to burn their trash,' Wright said." Is this what the Pentagon thinks the word of God is, trash? It's no wonder our nation is going down. Our military needs all the prayers every Christian can give them.

This is pretty terrible and yet there wasn't an uproar like there was when the threat was there to burn the Koran. Why is it that the U.S. is always afraid to offend someone else, but when it comes to Christians, it's who cares? I think we know the answer. And why would the military have to burn them? I think you know that answer, too. For those who enjoy this regime, breathe deeply because it won't last forever. And for those who will accuse me of hating Muslim, forget it. I married one.

Do you sometimes feel as though our government is making a concerted effort to get the God of the Christians and Jews out of our lives? The Jews first, but now also the Christians, are being blamed for so much of the world's ills. Burning the Bible is not going to keep God's word from being spread throughout the world. Jesus said His word would never pass away, and no amount of Bible burning will work against the will of God. When you consider all that's happening in today's world, can it be long before Jesus Christ's return?

Yes I think this is as offensive as burning any other religions holy writings. I don't care what religion it is it is disrespectful and uncalled for no matter what the reason. I have to say this will not help the Obamas in the fact that there are many people out there who believe him to be a Closet Muslim and hearing that orders where made to burn Bibles will fuel that though greatly. Personally I don't care what religion he is. This though is just as I said offensive.
