Operation Save America Goes a Step Too Far

Posted by Adam Graham on July 23, 2006

From the Clarion-Ledger, Operation Save America is looking for a new home:

Making Jesus Real Church in Pearl shut its doors Thursday to activists from the national anti-abortion group Operation Save America after learning the group burned a Quran in the church’s parking lot.

“They told me they were going to burn Supreme Court rulings about abortion,” the church’s pastor Sino Agueze said. “If they told me they would burn the Quran, I would have told them not to burn it.”

Agueze said he was not present Tuesday evening when the anti-abortion protesters burned the Muslim holy book, but learned about the incident from The Clarion-Ledger.

I don’t blame Pastor Agueze, I probably would have done the same thing. The burning of the Quran was not necessary. This had nothing to do with Islam. There are times when you’re being politically incorrect and they’re times when people are just obnoxious and inflammatory. Operation Save America is normally borderline, but here they crossed the line because they went beyond what they came to Mississippi to do, for something totally unrelated.
