Koran should be flushed

"A Baptist minister in Forest City (N.C.) refuses to apologize for a church sign saying the Muslim Koran should be flushed [see photo below]." susanhu writes: "The Reverend Creighton Lovelace of Danieltown Baptist Church says he believes it's a statement that the Bible is above any other religious book 'that does not teach Christ as savior and lord.' On Keith Olbermann's Countdown, the minister just said that the Quran is a 'tool of Satan.' And, 'Jesus would commend us for our stand.'"
