    Controversial Florida Pastor Terry Jones burned the Quran, the hold book of Islam, triggering violent clashes in Afghanistan which resulted in 11 deaths, 7 of them United Nations workers? Was this an exercise in free speech or lack of good judgment?

      It was both, I’m afraid.  However, the murders in Afghanistan are responsible for the deaths and not the misguided Pastor Jones.

    it was a means to incite . and provoke . it worked.  the killings were stupidity. Islam fell for it hook line and sinker.  Whats that say?

      Actually, I suspect it was aimed more at getting his name and face on the evening news, with an eye to convincing more fools to pay him to listen to his drivel each Sunday morning.

    Terry Jones is an ignorant, nasty jackass. A very poor excuse for a Christian minister in the same league with the Westover Baptists.
