Quran-burning church bashes North Carolina

By now most people have probably heard about the Dove World Church in Gainsville, Florida. That’s the outfit that is organizing an “International Burn a Quran Day” on September 11, despite pleas from Gen. David Patraeus that the campaign endangers American troops.

You might not have heard that RBC Bank called the church’s mortgage of $140,000. The reason the bank is demanding payment, according to the crazy conspiracy theorists at the church, is that RBC is headquartered in Raleigh.

I’ll let the World Church people take if from here:

North Carolina has a strong Muslim presence including state senator Larry Shaw who is also the chairman of the terror-linked Muslim group CAIR – an unindicted co-conspirator to the largest Islamic terror financing conviction in the U.S. It is part of the RBC Canada family that has entered into Islamic Sharia financing in recent years.

Given enough time I’m sure the church could work the Carolina Hurricanes into its explanation. And if it turns out that Osama bin Laden is hiding out in the RBC Center we can’t say that Sue Myrick never warned us.

    I am not sure the Quran burning church knows my Jesus or even believes that He was postured here on earth to atone for our sins and be resurrected to demonstrate that he stands well beyond any of us worldly beings. When humans die, they STAY dead.

    But if they do, don’t you know that He will be really proud to claim them for salvation when they stand FACE TO FACE with that Supreme Being one day and to be sure, that day will come.

    I am Baptist but I am convinced that there are bad and good people in every faith and denomination and that being Islamic does not send you to Hell, only the non-acceptance of the Saving Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will.

    Burning Quran is equivelent to Burning US Constitution. All the principles of the US Constitutions are found in the Priniciples outlined in the Holy Quran.

    Burning the Holy Quran is a crime equal to burning the US Constitution.

    Does this not remind us of Ku Klux Klan cross burnings? I feel it is on the same crude, bigoted and ignorant level as such. Certainly the parties involved are flirting with potential for untold reprisal as well as endangering anyone associated with the United States.

    Don’t burn it. Learn something about it! Qur’an Reading Day 9/11

    Join the event on Facebook, Everywhere USA

    Sign up to pledge to read from the Qur’an this September 11 as an act of solidarity with your Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. Not to take away from the solemn dignity that all people deserve who were affected by the horrific violence of terrorists that day, but take at least a moment to learn something new about a world tradition that has given us all so much, and to counter the awful sentiments of hatred and ignorance that can drag any of us down if we aren’t careful.

    “Where they burn books, they will ultimately also burn people”

    The above quote is taken from a 1821 play by Heinrich Heine called “Almansor”. In the play, the quote is referring to the burning of the Muslim Quran by the Christian Inquisition in Spain. However the quote is most associated with the May 10, 1933 burning of Jewish books by a Nazi crowd in Berlin.
