Barbour – Koran burning a bad idea

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said today that he opposes a Florida church’s plan to burn copies of the Koran on Sept. 11, and said he accepts “totally” that President Obama is a Christian.

“I do not think well of the idea of burning anybody’s Koran, Bible, Book of Mormon or anything else,” Barbour told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

“I don’t think there is any excuse for it,” Barbour said. “I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
