Response to Original message
I know that's preaching to the choir here, but tell your friends who disagree with you.
We expect Cicero, the Bible, Plato, Xenophon and Hawthorne to be respected, and we must respect the Koran if we expect people who come from outside our tradition to respect these works and those of the Enlightenment!
This Burn a Koran Day is extremely ill-advised, patently stupid, and potentially destructive to the West as well as to the Korans burnt.
So get the message out.
To everyone.
