And the fire ran along upon the ground

Eeyore posts a CNN interview/hit piece with Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Florida, noted for his plan to burn the Koran on 9/11.

Some words Pastor Jones might usefully have said but did not find the words to say.

He should have said, “If the Nazis had taken over 50 countries and were imposing strict Nazi laws and oppression on the people in those lands, then burning Mein Kampf would be a very rational symbolic resistance to that oppression” and he would be right, no matter how many Nazis it would have ‘offended’.

Too many Christians have misread II Corinthians 6:3. I can think of no greater stumbling block before the truth than a dissembling, feigned and cowardly respect for the ministry of Satan. In these days, to give offense is now a moral obligation.
