4. This is headed toward a bad ending...
All I think about is what would Jesus do?

I certainly don't think he would have sanctioned such actions against individuals who worship god in a different way.

It's ridiculous to me, at least, that any person who calls themselves a christian could any way justify action such as this as being in line with the teachings of the Christ.

What has to happen to stop this kind of shit from happening is for the rest of the people in this country to stand up and say enough is enough.

But I'm not going to hold my breath.

It would take a strong leader to stand up and say yes, it is wrong to burn the holy book of another religion. Yes you have the right to do that, but that doesn't mean it is right.

Again, in this day of fright and avoidance, there is no one who can truly say that enough is enough.

Strong leadership is surely lacking in this country.

anyway, I'll climb back down off my soapbox now...
