No Good from Buring the Quran

4 posts / 0 new

I listened the interview with Pastor Jones about burning the Quran. I have a childhood friend from my hometown in Ohio that has been a pastor for the past five years for a Methodist church, he changed careers after working the business world for about 15 years. I called him and joking asked if he was planning a Quran burning this Saturday. We discussed this in more detail and he brought to my attention that there is really absolutely no good that come from this Quran burning. The town he is pastor in is a very economically depressed and he is very progressive thinking and has a difficult time bringing new members into the church.

My friend mentioned that this is makes his job more difficult now too. When there is a crazy person on the air like this Pastor Jones spreading this hate, this will make it harder to get people to make the first effort to go to church because they will associate all churches with this crazy Pastor Jones.

There is nothing good that come from this action. Yes Pastor Jones is free to do this but there are so many negatives that come from this. I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share that he is even making other pastor's jobs more difficult.

To my recollection, Thom was the ONLY one to discuss this. Unless I missed it, even the left-wingers in the corporate media neglected to mention it.

State-Owned Bank of North Dakota is a HUGE Success!

In 2014, the state Bank of North Dakota was more profitable than Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. And, that's why every state should own their own depository institution.

Most people attributed the Bank of North Dakota's success with the oil boom in the region, but their latest report shows that last year was their most profitable year ever, despite the fact that their state's oil boom has become an oil bust.
