In protest of what it calls a religion "of the devil," a nondenominational church in Gainesville, Florida, plans to host an "International Burn a Quran Day" on the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks.
It's a pity that this Pastor has a very shallow outlook on the religion.
No doubt the religion (Islam) had been labeled as a violent religion thanks to all those fanatics' favourite pastime of bombing and killing innocent people in hope to die a martyr, I'm sure this pastor's ideology is only being supported and shared among people of his likes.
And there aren't many of them worldwide.
Another amusing perception of this pastor on Islamic worshippers was, those who congregate the Kaaba 'are not a happy bunch' --and he must got it all from watching them on the television-- personally, to me this was merely a statement from a person who is in dire lack of understanding of other religion and a person who is actually emotionally tormented.
His, I'd like to put, are the same as those Islamic fanatics who'd kill others by strapping bombs on themselves and be willing to die in pieces leaving behind their family in the name of Allah swt. How stupid can one be.
Their failure in understanding the needs and wants of Islam made such.
Of course, in this pastor's case we wouldn't expect more.
He knows well that all religions and faiths teaches only good things to all the followers, but it is only the people of the religion itself that made it look bad thus received such labels from the non-follower.
And on his remark that Islam is not 'a religion of joy'....that I must agree!
We don't do singing and play band in our mosque. We stand united and prostrate in unity following the Imam and believe that one day when our true imam, i.e. Imam Mahdi will be born and Jesus@isaAlayhis Salaam will finally walk again on this earth to save the religion and their follower from further discrimination.
Only then we will be understood better by the non-followers.
