Do Americans riot in the streets every time Arabs burn a flag in demonstration?  NO.

Haha. Our government could start arresting its own citizens, holding them in a secret place without charging them of any crime and denying them access to a lawyer or their families, and Americans wouldn't care.

Oh wait, it already did that. And yep, Americans don't care.

Fortunately, Americans DO care deeply about whether or not gay people are allowed to marry each other. Thank God we as citizens have our priorities straight.

then wouldnt that make issues involving the abuse of the Koran more important than those involving an American flag?

Hey Am......we can still be friends, right?   ;)

Hey, you say tomato, I say tomahto, you say liberal media conspiracy, I say steady erosion of civil liberties by a neoconservative government. ;)

No, because Americans could care less, in fact we burn out OWN flags. Although I heard somewhere that there was going to be a move in Congress to once again ban flag burning, is this true?

it passed the House a month or two ago... that has happened before, though.  i dont know if it was voted upon in the Senate but it wont pass there.
