Burning Korans; Burning Churches

by Steve Ray on September 10, 2010

Burning Korans? I think it unwise. But for those speaking against it: 1) is it due to respect for Islam and fair play, or 2) is it a fear of Islamic retaliation, or 3) is it both or for another reason?

If the outcry is because people fear Muslim response, do they really respect Islam?

And would the opponents of Koran burning be equally outraged at the burning of a Bible? Would that gain the attention of Hillary Clinton?

Just thinking out loud and contemplating about dynamics between a free world and Islam.

If “mainstream” Islam is so very respectful and tolerant, why in the world does it tolerate the extremists?

Why have the terrorists not been identified and eliminated? Why is Bin Laden (and other admitted terrorists) still at large? The reason I believe is that most Muslims admire these extremists and at least support them with non actions.

I do not understand how such a tolerant religion can produce such non tolerant actions.

Confused.
