Subject: RE: BS: Burning Korans
Bruce,

I am grateful that you have clarified that you do not defend the Koran burning.

However, I must ask you to be careful with what you write for the following reason.

you say:

"But it was legal, according to the laws at the time. As was the Holecaust- all legal, but WRONG."

But your original point was:

"IMO they have the right to burn them- as the Afghans have the right to burn bibles. But I do not think it to be a wise move."

Your original opinion was that he had the right to do it.

That wasn't a legal point but youe opinion.

I have no doubt you didn't mean that 'If something is legal then you have a right to do it'

Otherwise, by your own words, if the holocaust was legal then the Nazis had a right to inflict it.


Now I know that isn't your opinion, but I do wish you would take the time to consider your posts before committing yourself.


In my opinion, burning books is symptomatic of a dangerous mindset.
