Its probably not a good idea, but not big deal. I'm not religious, so you could add other sacred books to that holy bonfire and it wouldn't bother me one bit. You could add Darwin's outdated and revolutionary book to that fire and it still wouldn't bother me.
If fact I'm a little annoyed nobody wants to burn The Origin of Species anymore. Maybe its because there are libraries and museums filled with observations, experiments and direct evidence of evolution. Even Pope John Paul II conceded that evolution did occur. You couldn't burn it if you tried. Its written in the DNA of your very eyes.
I tried to read the Koran once. On the very first page it said that I would burn in hell if I didn't accept the Koran as the literal word of God. I'm not going out of my way to save this book from fire. While you all go out of your way to bend to the sacredness of this book, just remember it likely declares that you should burn too.
Sure. I would be upset if someone went around burning Canadian flags. The difference is that Canada doesn't think anyone should burn for not being a Canadian. Its quite the opposite in fact. Our Prime Minister even defends this book from burning even though it condemns him as well and is incompatible with Canadian laws or morals.
Muslims are always upset at something anyway. Its going to be painful, but they must be de-sensitized bit by bit. How is burning a Koran different from drawing Mohamed? They have to understand Allah and Mohammad are not important to many people. Everyone deserves some basic respect, but they don't deserve to have their revered ideas equally revered by all because they revere them so much.
I'd rather we started burning some laws and acts and other useless and wasteful ordinances.
In fact their childish behavior at any perceived insult, even if its perpetrated by someone equally idiotic, is more reason to heap the offence higher. It because of the death threats, honour killings, fatwas, jihads, effigy burnings, beheadings and all the rest that my heart has hardened towards Islam. I don't care if they are offended. Not one bit.
If it came down to living under Christianity or Islam, I'm with the Christians. I'd sooner take the Cross myself than live one second under Islamic Sharia. Look around. Christians are good. I'm not sure why God hides from me when He is so obvious to so many. At least Christians of today will let me be. At least they believe in freedom.
