from detnews:

"The pastor also continued on his contention that Sharia law, or Islamic law, is being practiced in the United States. But much of his speech and those of about 20 supporters was difficult to hear, drowned out by shouting from opponents, a muddled public-address system and honking horns.

"Drivers and passengers in cars on Michigan Avenue waved shoes at Jones, an act of disrespect in Arab and Muslim cultures. Others made obscene gesture and shouted 'go home!'"

How ironic that those so steeped in a foreign culture that they felt compelled to throw shoes as a sign of disrespect (clearly not an American notion) shouted "Go home" to Jones who was exercising his Constitutionally-given right to free speech.

Creeping Shariah.

A fear homosexuals that is persistent, abnormal, and irrational is homophobia. The fear of islam is persistent, normal and not irrational and thus is not a phobia.

Jones is calling Islam what it is..America may not like him but his message is right. Islam does treat women badly, it does bring evil to where ever it goes. America is being fooled with the use of Taqiyya..and if you are unaware of what TAQIYYA or Kafir means you need to learn more about ISLAM and take a stand against it too!

An American court in Dearborn MI ruled that the Jones could not protest at the Dearborn mosque because the City as a whole "feared" what the muslim community would do. Where their "fears" justified? Yes; so the fear of islam is not a phobia but a resonable fear!

just so yall know there are A LOT of non muslims that have protested this freak of a pastor. if a mosque is blown up or a quran burned there are so many like yall that tend to say "freedom of speech" even though the criminal is a prejudicial non muslim and can possibly murder muslims while they are at it. Yet if a muslim defends themselves from such a person they are called terrorists.....take yalls heads out ur arses and find another group to pick on cause we aint what the media portrays us out to be!!

Among the opponents was Frank Godek of Dearborn.

"He's a Bible-carrying hypocrite," Godek said. "He wants to burn someone else's holy book. I'm a Polish Catholic and I have a lot of Arab and Muslim friends. They are good people."

A Dearborn court and jury ruled the muslim community in Dearborn is violent and should be feared, to the point a peaceful protest is banned and an innocent person thrown in jail because of fear of what the muslim community will do.

What Jones did was expose the violent nature of the muslim community. Jones has gotten over three hundred death threats. As with burning the flag, burning a koran is a protected right for Americans.

What you just gave was a strawman arguement. The only ones demonstrating a violent nature is the muslim community.

There you go America. Let's get millions more Muslims into this country. I can see the riots already when they don't get there way.

These people in particular the young Muslim males have already proven this all over Europe.\

Oh, but they are all so peeeeaaaacfull and loooovvving, as we are continually being told. LOL>

I guess this country just has a death wish for itself.
