As usual, Glenn Beck encapsulates my own thoughts quite nicely over at his new website, The Blaze.
The money quote comes from the last paragraph:
I don't know if this act by the Dove World Outreach center will be detrimental; General Petraeus sure seems to think so. Regardless, I don't believe any good will come of this. And so, we return to Gryph's first rule of moral and ethical decision making:
The only thing this act would prove is that you CAN burn a Koran. I didn’t know America was in doubt on that fact.
When uncertain moral or ethical issues arise, don't act on a doubt.
