  •  Intentionally inciting people to violence? (0+ / 0-)

    "Unless it can be proven that he is intentionally inciting people to violence the government cannot censor or prosecute him."

    Jones was urged not to burn his Quran by many, including General David Petraeus, lest it cause problems to American troops in Afghanistan by inciting people to violence. Defense Secretary Gates phoned him personally with the same message.

    •  Is his intent to incite violence, (0+ / 0-)

      or is it protest the beliefs of Koran? Making a suggestion to not do something because of what will result only addresses the act, not the intent behind the act.

      I personally don't care for the guy but he has the right to burn the paper and ink of any book he wants.

      Life is risky, politics is war, government is force and liberty is very expensive.
