i think it's worth considering the following:
here in the states, it is widely believed/accepted/talked about that muslims do this, think that, etc...certainly these yahoos in florida have ideas of "what a muslim is". (generally, i think most here have a more open perspective on this....the clown in chief down in florida wrote a book called "islam is of the devil").
so, now, christians in this country are faced with a stupid and ignorant person (with 50 followers) who is making worldwide headlines with a planned act that is _at least_ going to be perceived (and marketed) by our enemies as "how christians act", "how americans act".
to me, it seems that the vast majority of american christians are now in (or about to be in) the same boat of the majority of world's muslims....peace loving individuals being "spoken for" by fringe extremists.
it doesn't look like jones will get a burn permit, so my guess is this will end with the lighting of a match....but it's a lesson we can all learn from.
