mauvepink BS: Burning Korans (290* d) RE: BS: Burning Korans 08 Sep 10

Today I was chatting to two Muslim shop owners. They were man and wife. We got talking about this latest attempt to try and upset any peace and respect "that most sensible have for each other" the word (their words). They never used religion once. They did talk of feelings and concerns. They also acknowledged that they know this is an attempt to cause offence and upset. They personally would not hold others responsible for such an outrage. They would feel upset if they saw people they knew burning bibles.

We then got to talking to about those affected by the floods in Pakistan.

At no time was their language or demeanour anything other than friendly. At no time was what they said in any way threatening or hateful. We were simply common people with common sense with a common hope for peace in the world and respect for other's feelings.

I wish there was so much more of this worldwide

It is true that a book is just paper. But then so is a photograph. So are letters. So is money! But when that paper holds 'special' meaning to its owner THEN it has a value beyond the ordinary. Burning scared scripts is as insulting to those who respect that script as it is to burn a flag of a country.

I have not heard one person today that said they thinkthis idea is a good one. No-one seems to back this man. Why can they not find some law to stop him in his tracks? The symbolism that he is attempting to raise by this stunt can bring with it no good... it's quite evil :-(
