    Whatever the social or anti-social implications of his actions, Terry Jones was making a statement protected as free speech, absolutely protected as free speech.  Certainly, had he chosen to burn the flag, instead of the Koran, this would not have happened to him.

    It didn't matter, though. 

    Terry Jones' loan was called immediately by the bank and he is now in foreclosure.

    Terry Jones' insurance was summarily cancelled.

    Terry Jones' web service was summarily cancelled and his website taken down.

    Shariah law now being enforced.  Libs here scoffed "How could they ever hope to enforce it here?"

    Simple.  By making everyone so fearful of anyone who defames Islam, that it happens anyway.  So much for the Constitution, free speech, or freedom.   And libs don't care.  They still hate Terry Jones and wish to harm him.   

    Who would ever have thought libs wanted Shariah law?  Will they start executing gays who out in public next?

      Basically, you have no clue what Sharia Law is apparently, Anything you don't like, doesn't make it Sharia Law. Further, Jones operated as a non profit religious organization, thus making it a requirement to not directly espouse a partisan ideology, which he does, thus his tax exempt status was revoked. It is Constitutional...oh, wait, you don't like that do you?

        Well put Tex. Most people have no idea what sharia law is and just want to spread more hate and more lies about islam to help them sleep better at night. And it is clear that the media have these people so scared and dumbed down they dont know their on behind from Adam's house cat.

          the replies have said everything I wanna say but:

          Never_Forget: "stoning a woman for wearing a t-shirt! well that's just not true...sorry, in fact, 70% of your information about islam in the u.s. are totally wrong....but I agree with the rest of your reply!

          so please: weholdthesetruths, don't just put words like Sharia and islam in your text unless you know what they mean!

      Well I haven't being following the story, but, how do you know that this has really started to happen to him?  Do you know him, or is this what he is reporting?

      And, what is Shariah Law?  Seriously, I don't know.

      Nevermind, I just read Doug's post, "Sharia Law is Islamic law as interpreted by religious leaders and enforced by the government if/when the government is dominated by Islam."

      Okay, so how is it that this is what you think is happening to him now?

      Are you descended from the Jukes family or the Kallikaks family?

        "The Jukes and the Kallikaks were pseudonyms for two families used as examples during the latter 19th century and early 20th century to argue that there was a genetic disposition toward anti-social behavior or low intelligence."

        I had to look that one up in Wiki.  That might explain it.

        Of course I like how Jeff Foxwothy put it, "You might be a wingnut if your family tree doesn't branch.".. Well he said it somethin' like that.

      This is pure crapola! I worry about a lot of things, but Sharia isn't one of them. Sounds like something out of Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachman, Sharron Angle or the latest lunatic Tea Tard, Christine O'Donnell.

    This post is (on a scale of 1 to 10 in wingnuttism) a clear 20.

    Sharia Law is Islamic law as interpreted by religious leaders and enforced by the government if/when the government is dominated by Islam.

    Everyone in the government said that what this evangelical nut proposed was a BAD idea and protected by the first amendment. No government cohercion. I see no evidence that the bank or insurance company or web service were influenced by the government or local mosque. They invoked clauses in their contracts which I presume where totally legal.

    One MIGHT infer that the bank, insurance company and web service provider were so offended by this evangelical wingnut that they took extraordinary measures to express their disapproval - which seems like an expression of free speech by the bank, the insurance company and the web service provider - as long as it was contractual.

    Sharia law? In your wingnut delusions, maybe.

    Sharia Law is like stoning a woman for wearing a t-shirt. Sharia Law has nothing to do with white people defaming Islam.

    Also, if the dude was going to burn a holy book, then he brought it on himself. Just because a guy wants to build a Mosque doesn't mean it's justified to burn the book of the entire religion. He deserves to be punished for his douchebaggery.

      I would quibble - and it's a small thing, with the word 'punished'. It's good thatt he government did NOT attempt to intervene with police to prevent the threatened BBQ. It's GREAT that society at large brought every form of social condemnation on the pastor and church.

      The 'punishment' is not a civil or criminal penalty - it's being rejected by your own society at every level.

    ... i think we need to readdress the issue of "private action" and "government action".

    If I piss you off for saying something against your religion, then you're allowed to be mad at me and not loan me money...

    If I piss people off, then you are NOT allowed to run for congress and then pass legislation benefiting said religion.

    See the difference? Government and private?

    Jones is feeling the consequences of acting like a jerk around people who get to *choose* whether they do business with him.  That is all 100% American.
