Christian Terrorism: "International Burn a Koran Day"

Ummm... so this guy is proposing "International Burn a Koran Day". Of course it is on 9/11.

It is embarrassing that a clown like this claims to live by the same book I've been reading this year. Even the casual observer of my blog would be able to tell that his motives are based in his own fears, anger, and thirst for power rather than what is actually in the letter and spirit of the Bible. 

But this begs the question... what makes someone a terrorist? 

Sir Webster defines terrorism as "the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion." 

What those folks did on 9/11 sure does apply but so does the man in the video above. I don't support the use of fear in any form but at least I can understand why some people outside the United States might not be so keen on our international policies. 

But this guy? I don't get it. Dude is launching a book burning campaign from the safety of his home in the most powerful country in the world. His freedom to live and worship how he sees fit is not under attack at all. And to top it off, he is challenging the faith of Christians like me who oppose his views. 

He is using faith and the threat of eternal damnation to encourage folks who follow a spirituality based on love, charity, and community to act completely contrary to these values. 

I wonder what he will say to God when it is his time to answer for the actions of his life. How will he justify these actions? How is it in line with the great commandments to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves? 

And if he doesn't consider those who place their faith in the words of the Qur'an to be his neighbors, Jesus also challenged us to love our enemies!

I know it's not my place to judge but oh boy would I like to be a fly on the wall in the room when he has to answer for this one. 


  1. As a Muslim, this announcement disturbed me not so much because of the rampant Islamophobia, but moreso for the bad name Pastor Wayne Sapp gives Christians.

    In the youtube video the Pastor literally states that being a Christian does not mean that you have to believe in God. I might be a little out of the major Abrahamic faiths loop, but how can you claim to speak for Christianity and the righteous path, if God is debunked from the center your beliefs? Thank you for post Clarence, I too would like to buzz right next to you and plant myself on that wall.

  2. A Christian's primary question should always be "What would Jesus do?" I believe history shows, not this. That is all.

  3. That really saddens and angers me. Because not only is he completely factually wrong about Jesus stated purpose for coming to earth, he's so arrogantly confident it his ignorance. I'm under the impression that he is undoubtedly using Christ's name in all the definitions of the word vain.

  4. This is heart breaking. The bible is about LIFE TRUTH and LOVE. There is no love in this act. This whole act represents what the enemy comes to do, "but to steal, kill, and to destroy. This is not of God at all." John 10:10
