Can You Yell “I’m Puking” in a Crowded Theater?

Monday, April 4th, 2011


Remember Terry Jones, the goofball pastor of Dove World Outreach Church in Gainesville, Florida? This group of Christian dolts planned to burn Qurans to protest the 911 attack by al Qaeda.  Fortunately the world convinced him not to. But last week, he publicly burned a few Qurans and violence broke out all over Afghanistan especially against American and UN forces.  Three UN workers and seven of their guards were killed and hundreds of people were injured.

Hatred of the US has been building for a long time.  Mobs burned American flags and demanded we leave their country.  But hell, what do they know?  The US knows what’s good for them – it’s only their country.

These fundamentalist Christian nitwits (not to be confused with another Christian nut group – the Westboro Baptist Church – which protests at US troops funerals) suck out loud.  Should they be allowed to spew their vile in our country – even if it means they put  Americans abroad at risk?

Freedom of Speech in America says ‘yes’ – and I must regretfully agree.  We tolerate disgusting views and actions – as long as no one is in immediate danger – simply because this is America.  I also think we should spotlight this Christian slime because, as a member of the Supreme Court said, “Sunshine is the best disinfectant.”

We should also get out of every country where our war machine grinds.  We just don’t understand Mid eastern cultures and bombing them back to the stone age won’t help at all.  Hell, many of them are already there.
