Koran Burning

As you know Terry Jones, the Pastor from Florida, went ahead last week and burned the Koran which led to Afghan President Karzi condemning him and calling for his arrests which then then to the killing of more than 30 people. Many questions surround this episode for me: How do we as Christians separate our political positions and freedoms as citizens from our faith? Was what Jones did wrong and how was it wrong? What was Jones' purpose? What happens when one day Christian Pastors are accused of starting riots & inciting violonce for preaching truth?

and on and on it goes...

On Gene Veith's blog there is a good discussion going on over it - check out the comments
