Right now what is going on with the new Mosque two blocks from Ground Zero and the church in Florida planning to burn The Quran; well, these things are just making me crazy.
It is certainly not my plan to put other people’s thoughts up as posts on this family blog. But sometimes another just says it so well that my comment would be superfluous. Whether you love or hate Glenn Beck, you need to read this.
Thoughts From Glenn on Church Plan to Burn Koran
I’m on vacation and trying to unplug but the news can make that hard. I just read the story about the Florida church planning to burn copies of the Koran.
What is wrong with us? It’s just like the Ground Zero mosque plan. Does this church have the right? Yes. Should they? No. And not because of the potential backlash or violence. Simply because it is wrong. The more I reflect on what happened on 8/28 the more I realize the amazing power of GOOD.
We must be the better person. We must be bigger than our problems. Bigger than the times in which we live. Burning the Koran is like burning the flag or the Bible. You can do it, but whose heart will you change by doing it? You will only harden the hearts of those who could be moved. None of those who are thinking about killing us will be affected, but our good Muslim friends and neighbors will be saddened. It makes the battle that they face inside their own communities even harder.
Let us rise above the current levels and elevate ourselves and our country. The only thing this act would prove is that you CAN burn a Koran. I didn’t know America was in doubt on that fact. Let’s prove to each other that while there are many things we can do, there are maybe many more things that we choose not to do.

Someone needs to lead the way out of the morass we are in. The future is up to us. If we do not do ‘the right thing’ how can we possibly expect others to? I choose Faith, Hope and Charity. What about you?
