Well.... There are local and municipal laws about starting fires, but aside from that, nothing. I personally would like to burn a bible one-for-one with them. Not because I like the Quran (have you read it, it is as nuts, or MORE nuts), but because the people that WANT to burn it would be upset by the action. Provocateurs should understand their weakness.
I have no desire to burn the Bible or the Quaran TBR. But I respect the rights of others to do so. Furthermore, if Religious extremists weren't so reactionary about the act, there would be less incentive to do so. I also believe that those religious members of Debate.Org would enjoy themselves on the site more if they stopped creating Biased one-sided polls and created options accommodating of differing points of view.
I don't disagree. Look, I have read them both (never completed the Koran). If I never had to crack either of those books every again, I would be happy. I just don't care about them enough to bother burning either. However, the fervor to fight religious wars (Christians vs Muslims) makes me want to BURN IT ALL!!!!
@TBR I certainly feel that just because one person believes their 2,000 year old book is more correct than another person's 2,000 year old book is not a very good justification for hating someone else. It is certainly a pathetically weak excuse or reason for violence.
@triangle.128k Quran Desecration is indeed officially punishable by death under the criminal code in Afghanistan, Somalia and Pakistan. In other countries, Quran Desecration will get you killed, albeit through unofficial means.
@triangle.128k That still is technically Free Speech. The only repercussion is that your reputation may get soiled along with theirs. Kind of like how people talk smack about the KKK and the Westboro Baptist Church, but the two previously mentioned organizations still do their demonstrations.
