Since the story broke weeks ago, I've been trying to pretend like this is one of those low-budget jokes that I'll never understand. But then I saw today's post on Reuters. And it hit me. The entire WORLD is watching & waiting to see what this lunatic is going to do on September 11th. In the name of God and freedom of speech.
And I can't.
See, it's not that I have a problem with his version of God or the idea of the freedom of speech. Shoot, I'm 110% for the protection of freedom of SPEECH. SAY what you want all the live long day.
Howsomever, when it comes to BURNING the holy books of ANY religious faith? Nope. I will not get behind that EVER. Not the Quran, not the Bible, not a Torah, NOTHING. Everyone's faith deserves EQUAL respect. Period.
And on the most basic, selfish level- I, Mitzi Miller do not want to live through another terrorist attack. Especially one that is preventable.
I'm willing to bet $100, neither Pastor Jones nor his foolish followers were here or anywhere near NY when the towers fell. So of course it's easy for him to shrug his shoulders and keep it moving when anyone with commonsense can tell you that such behavior will put all Americans at grave risk.
But I was.
And the thought of him blatantly PROVOKING the jihadists that were responsible for that nightmare, is simply incomprehensible. Um hello, these are the same take-it-the-limit extremists that have publicly hired bounty killers to murder folks for drawing cartoons of Muhammad! So yeah, what do you think is gonna happen when that racist lights the match??
Now, I understand that there's really nothing legally that anyone can do to stop this situation. But believe this: Your freedom ends where mine behinds.
So if it goes down, and he does destroy those blessed texts, I PRAY that the press publicizes a LIST of every single, solitary, f'cking FOOL that has sent that mad man monetary donations or an actual Quran. Because I'mma need the suicide bombers and assassins to go kill THEM.
