Christian Intolerance and the Framers

CNN has the incredible story. via Il Principe.

An armed Christian organization, Right Wing Extreme, will protect a church that is planning to host an "International Burn a Quran Day" on September 11, the church's pastor said Tuesday.

The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, says it is hosting the event to remember 9/11 victims and to take a stand against Islam. With promotions on its website and Facebook page, the nondenominational church invites Christians to burn the Muslim holy book.

Dove's Facebook page, set up for the September event, has nearly 6,000 fans. The initiative has also drawn critics.

The Prince made the following comment.

When the framers of the Constitution gave the people the right to bear arms, I don't think they would agree with the idea of a religious sect using those weapons to intimidate another religious sect.

I wouldn't be so quick to say that. The framers of the constitution were inspired men in some ways, but completely backwards in others. They were slave owners and misogynists. They denied basic human rights to more than half the human population. Nothing they had in mind would surprise me, just like nothing surprises me from those modern day patriots who have made demigods of the "founding fathers."

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. Meh. It seems they've pulled out.

    So much for intolerance.

  2. It seems that the Prince's "army" is scattered all over the U.S. and the logistics (getting enough Mountain Dew and Cheetohs together to withstand a l day siege) AND conning their moms out of the bus fare was an insurmountable task. Silly fucks.

  3. Yeah, they pulled out. That's a case of too little too late.
