The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue condemned the planned 9/11 Quran today saying that it would be:

"…an outrageous and grave gesture."

The Catholic Church joins a growing list who condemn the plans of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida to mark the September 11 anniversary by burning the Muslim holy book in protest against Islamic radicals.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus recently condemned the plans.

The National Council of Churches USA Issued the following statement:

"Misguided or confused about the love of neighbor by which Christ calls us to live, leaders and members of this church and others are engaged in harassment of Muslims, and in the planning of an "International Burn the Qur’an Day," to be held on September 11th. Such open acts of hatred are not a witness to Christian faith, but a grave trespass against the ninth commandment, a bearing of false witness against our neighbor. They contradict the ministry of Christ and the witness of the church in the world."

Also the Union for Reform Judaism:

We can scarcely find words to express our revulsion at the Dove World Outreach Center’s "Burn a Koran Day," scheduled for September 11. Only those whose minds have been tainted by evil and acrimony would undertake to organize a sacrilegious event such as this and to do so in the name of God and religious piety.

(Thanks to Rev. Chuck Currie for the quotes above)

Response: The controversy goes on and it is my take that Dove’s pastor Terry Jones is loving all of the attention. However he did say he was still praying about it.

So we should pray about it also. Pray that no one is hurt or killed over this. Pray that Muslims will somehow understand that not all Christians or Americans are to blame for this action. Also pray that pastor Jones finally does respond to the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Koran Idol and Moral Equivalency Attempt:

    In classical Arabic, the Koran is used for memorization and chant. By making their language large and their god small, they’ve got pretty book – a polished idol.

    Since the dialectical Absolute of the Koran is found in Mohammed’s synthesis of an incomplete Bible, the Koran has become the Idol against all idols. (This is consistent with the Pride against all prides: the Pride of Hell.)

    If you want evidence that the Koran is an idol, simply make a public announcement that you’re going to burn on. To be murdered in Afghanistan, all you need to do is to translate one. If you like European riots, draw a cartoon of its author.

    If someone in Pakistan says, “Blasphemous floor tiles,” do you laugh? …or do you commit suicide to destroy the tiles and the people walking on them?

    The Islamic rioters’ prostration to Mohammed’s Koran would be an annoyance to Gabriel. Only Lucifer insists on bowing and prostration. Gabriel won’t tolerate it.
