Alcee Hastings on Quran burning: "Disgraceful to American values"

"The downright racism behind this hate-filled organization’s threat to burn copies of the Quran is disgraceful to American values. The issue here is not our coveted right of free speech; the issue is American values.

"Hate is hate and this is free speech running amuck.  It is irresponsible to hide behind the First Amendment and knowingly put our U.S. military in harm’s way. Not only do I condemn these proposed actions for their complete disrespect to the Islamic religion, but I condemn these actions for their potential to
incite further violence and hate crimes."

If the book burning proceeds, Hastings said he plans to introduce a House resolution next week condemning the burning.

Alcee Hastings is disgraceful to American values. Guess he would know, right?

I always thought "Tar and Feathers" was a very evil mechanism, but maybe it ought to be enacted once more for this "minister".

I was very impressed in reading that many have left the "minister's" church. They might be out buying supplies needed for the "Tar and Feathers".
