AP: JAKARTA, Indonesia

Thousands of Indonesian Muslims are rallying outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta to denounce a Florida church’s plan to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11.

The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., said it will burn the Islamic holy book on the ninth anniversary of the terror attacks.

Response: What a nightmare! This is just the beginning. Nothing good can come from this deliberate controversy. It fact look for violence, and maybe even worse before this is over. I hope this Florida pastor is proud of himself. However he should be condemned by other pastors and Christian leaders.

Here’s one response that you can join in on- a Facebook page: People Of Faith Opposed To The Burning of the Qur’an started by Rev. Chuck Currie..

We first posted in July about the plan of this Florida church to burn Qurans on the Sept. 11 anniversary and condemned it.  Here’s what we said at the time:

“…Not a good idea at all.

Jesus teaches us to treat others like we would want to be treated. Since this will unnecessarily offend thousands of Muslims it really doesn’t pass the ‘Jesus test’ as far as I’m concerned.

However, I do defend the right of that church to burn Qurans or even Bibles if they unfortunately choose too. Also I would condemn anyone would threaten or carry out acts of terrorism against the church and its pastor or members.

I believe that these type of actions end up reflecting poorly upon a church and a pastor. …It is no accident that the ‘church’ in this case is non-denominational. No regular Christian organization would tolerate this type of offensive publicity seeking event.”

Does anyone out there really think that burning Qurans reflects well on any group of Christians or even the Christian community in general?
