Rev. Jones says that they had accomplished their goal of trying to get the mosque moved from the ground zero area. A small church in Florida is willing to jeopardize the lives of military members and American citizens overseas simply because they were trying to control events in a completely different city and state. Moving the mosque was his word from God even though there was a front page story about this mosque in December. This story became heated in May, 5 months later, only after it became a political issue.
Already tensions are rising against Americans overseas just because this church broadcasted their intentions. Some pundits of the media are saying that they should not give this guy a microphone and keep him away from the cameras. I can truly understand their point of the media sometimes add fuel to the fire by elevating those who do not consider anyone or anything else except themselves, but not informing the public about events or people pushing their ideas and belief onto others would be a failure of professional journalism.
It could be that when the decision to burn the Quran were made some time ago, it was already published. Whether cameras capture this image, if this action is followed through, one can be assured that someone somewhere would record this action and put it on the internet. It should also be reiterated that even though this action is protected by the constitution, there is a question as to whether this action would cause intimidation or injury. This should be explored more.
I am not really sure how exactly this should work regarding the covering of radicals and their followers but I do think that all should be heard equally. I do not think that just because one has extreme ideas about something that they should be ignored or minimized but they should be greatly regulated. There should be a warning before extreme views are reported so that viewers will know ahead of time. Like many things that are legal but still can be harmful to your health or the health of this nation. It may now be time for many of us to consult the Book of Revelations.
