Rise and Shine --- Just don't get it

Good Morning and welcome to the middle of the week!

A hot topic of conversation yesterday was about a Florida church that plans on a Quran burning Saturday.
The Government is speaking out against it. Military leaders in Afghanistan are saying it could lead to troop deaths.
Any person with a brain should be condemning the church and its leader, Terry Jones.
That kind of hate does nobody any good. It doesn't matter if you are Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Jehovah's Witness or atheist, there is no way a correctly-working sense of morality should support this kind of thing.
So, they burn the Quoran. Then the next step is they burn the Torah, because, well, those of the Jewish faith aren't Christian. Then they start burning houses to those who don't support their doctrine.
We are all people. Even those who live strictly by the Bible can't argue the fact that everybody in every religion worships the same God. The stories might be different, told from a different point of view and written at different times, but they are the same.
Before you condemn, do some research.
Talk to people of different faiths. See that everybody is pretty much the same.
Then do yourself a favor and rent or watch online the movie "Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden.
If you keep things open, maybe there wouldn't be so much hate around.
