Would you like to sign a petition?

This is what the petition states:

We the people of the City of Gainesville Florida, and others everywhere who support freedom of religion, sincerely request that the Dove World Outreach Center Church not proceed with their plans to burn the Koran on 9/11 or at any other time. Freedom of religion is a founding principle of our Constitution and the burning of any people's sacred texts is in direct opposition to this principle. If you proceed with your plans to burn the Koran, please understand that this act will not serve to lessen our respect for the Muslim faith, but will only serve to lessen our respect for you and what you are preaching.

This is the link to the petition:
And my comment was:
Your actions will only serve to foster more hostility toward the TRUE religion and teachings of Christ. This will not help you carry out the Great Commission and "make disciples of all the world". You are like the Pharisees of Jesus' day... who thought they were religious and chosen by God. Yes, they were religious and yes they were chosen by God, but chosen for damnation, not for life everlasting WITH HIM. We are to be salt and light, ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within us. Who did Jesus have the harshest words for? The heathen? NO. The ones who thought they were religious. The ones who crucified Him.

To the Muslims who may read this, please know that this hateful attitude is representative of only a small number of extremist "christians". NOT true followers of Christ.
