Well, I don't think anyone can be surprised by this. I think this deserves a thread to itself because it's going to be an evolving story, and my guess is that these threats are not idle.

A couple of questions arise from this, namely, If this pastor gets assassinated: What will be the reaction of Americans?
What will be the response of Muslim Americans? Will there be mass protests and even more Quran burnings? Will this effect the Presidential election, possibly benefitting a Michelle Bachman "type" hardliner with anti-islamic views?

This ain't over folks,,,,,,
