The Shame of it all

Sometimes I wonder of
our constitutional might
some things that we do
be wrong or be right

This week will make history
no doubt it's a fact,
In burning the Koran
such a radical act

The man says he's a Christian
wants us to believe,
that Islam is evil
The Koran does deceive

He calls Muslim all fanatics
Come on man get a grip,
He's never read the Koran
He just shoots from the hip

Hate, he says comes from Muslims
Look at 9/11 " I say"
3000 innocent Christians
That died on that day

Let me say this to you Pastor
Plain as the nose on your face,
Your kind of remembrance
In this World HAS NO PLACE

We Christians should take great offense to what is going to take place in Orlando Fla.
on 9/11/10. I for one do......

    while I certainly do not agree with the objective of Islamism and the means by which they desire to attain it ..burning the Koran is not conducive to peace to say the least....and so should not be done. hOWEVER, christians need to be well aware of the historical methodology of that religion and keep their eyes open. HIstory itself dictates it. Islamism is a religion and a government.Not seperate. A good write, Taz to remind us what christianity is about and to get the brain matter kick started.
