-Quran Burning: Now They are Coming Out of the Woodwork!

I guess if you want your 15 minutes of fame in America and around the world the ‘best’ thing you can do right now is threaten to burn a Quran? It sure worked for ‘Pastor’ Terry Jones now he is known from shore to shore in America and his effigy is being burned in Afghanistan and Gaza. Overnight he has become an international figure.

I live down the freeway from Hollywood in South Orange County and they have a saying there that any kind of publicity is good—even bad. Now the nutroots are coming out of the woodwork and falling all over each other trying to become the next ‘Terry Jones’. I found at least a half a dozen references to different folks who are now going to burn a Quran on Saturday- the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack.

Besides the crazy Westboro ‘Baptist’ Church or family if you will there are others all across America that now are threatening to burn Qurans including a preacher in Tennessee and a nutcase in Wyoming –all seeking their 15 seconds of face time.

But hold the presses, Terry Jones doesn’t want to be upstaged by these late-comers, now he is saying the deal may be off and the burning may go on? There is some confusion there for sure.

Meanwhile thousands are protesting in Afghanistan and in Gaza but the beat goes on.

Yes we have freedom of speech and freedom of religion in this country. Yes folks are free to burn Qurans or Bibles if they want. But does that mean that the press has to cover the event and give them undeserved publicity for their unfortunate choices and actions? I don’t think so.            *Top of the Blog
