Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says congressional lawmakers are discussing taking some action in response to the Koran burnings of a Tennessee pastor that led to killings at the U.N. facility in Afghanistan and sparked protests across the Middle East, Politico reports.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.

This guy needs replaced. Any any other co-sponsors of such legislation and of course any one who would vote for such a thing.
said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech
Any such move would be unconstitutional.
Yes, please go on record about the first amendment.
I wonder if Reid would like congress to probe the Mormon Church?
Pastor Terry Jones, if this comes to pass, can count on the support of the ACLU. . . . Right???
Globalism at it finest
“Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.”
This is absolutely outrageous! We should start an effort to have a mass Quran burning! This is total Bullcr@p!
if he believes there’s a connection he must look into Hollywood.
His thinking means Hollywood has killed far more.
Linda has totally lost it. MoonBattery.
Dingy Harry why don't you hold hearings on Muslim killing Innocent people
Turbin Dicky can asked his witnesses why Muslims feel the need to kill people over burning a book of fiction.
Yes, we need to investigate. Everybody knows that no muslim ever harmed anybody before this guy burned that Koran.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
I have a proposal to limit the 1st Amendment. Any person elected to federal office who talks about limiting the 1st Amendment rights of his fellow citizens gets sent to Leavenworth for 30 years.
Your point being? Uh, lets see ObamaCare is unconstitutional, and we are still being compelled to spend 100's of Billions of dollars on it. The senseless, useless bombing of Libya is unconstitutional and watch the Congress sit on their haunches. The President hasn't even gotten around to proving that he is Constitutional and yet the beat goes on and Senators state openly they are tired of reading the Constitution.
I was hoping this was satire.
I was hoping this was satire.
Tell that to GWB, who signed a similar measure designed to protect incumbant politicians into law.
The "bithers" and Trump were right.
1)President ignores the elegibilbily process by refusing to prove it with documents (even though I have a hunch he was born in the USA)
2) That gives them permission (in their mind) to cram Obamacare down the throats of the American people.
3) Obama goes to the UN to complain about Arizona's "immigration" policy.
4) Obama takes the nation to war after consulting the UN (and not US Congress)
We conservatives cannot pick and choose which parts of the constitution can be allowed to be ignored and which parts should be enforced.
When reason fails, hope springs eternal.
Hey Graham and Reid, what needs to be limited (eliminated) in our country are murdering radical Muslims and Sharia Law.
Leave the First Amendment alone!
