What If They Burned A Koran And Nobody Was There To See It?

I guess we’ll find out as Springfield, TN’s Bob Old decided to go through with his copycat Koran burning after all:
But for all the controversy and hype, his Quran burning took place in front of just a handful of people, most of them from the media.

Old and the Rev. Danny Allen stood together in Old's backyard, answering what they say was a message from God.

Well isn’t that special. In fact, eight journalists showed up for Old and Danny Allen’s pathetic “demonstration,” which clearly was a sad attempt to get some attention since obviously his church wanted nothing to do with it.


Three protesters stood across the street from Old's home, holding signs that read "My husband fights terrorism and your actions perpetuate it" and "Proud of my country but ashamed of my neighbors."

Okay, Tennesseans. Hope everyone is proud of themselves. Now can we all move along?
