Should Rev. Terry Jones Be Charged With Treason?

     The Rev. Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, FL has stated that he and his church will burn copies of Islam's holy book, the Quran on Saturday, Sept. 11th to commemorate the anniversary of the 9-11 attack on the United States even though he has been warned by top military officials that burning the Quran will incite violence and seriously endanger our troops. 

Since endangerment of troops in time of war is considered a treasonous act, do you think Rev. Jones should be charged with treason if he follows through with his plan?

Yes. I think that in knowing that the act of burning the Quran will endanger the troops, Rev. Terry Jones will be committing an act of treason and should be charged.

No. I think that Rev. Jones has the right to burn the Quran as an act of free speech and should not be charged with treason.
