re: "Burn a Koran website"

This is a terrible thing to do and will only spark anger. Retaliating the angry protests of Muslims with burning their holy book only makes them just as bad.

re: "Burn a Koran website"

Just a stupid act meant to outrage others - similar to if not exactly like:

Burning U.S. flags
Burning the Bible

But there's no law against it... it's supposedly a protected freedom of speech. :shrug:

Some people burn Korans, others build mosques over American dead. Is there a difference?

As it should be. I may not agree with it and I think it's utterly stupid, but it IS a form of expression and I think that should be protected

I see little that can be accomplished from this except aiming to anger some Muslims.
