Keith, no one should lighten up over such a serious issue as this. Not subscribing to a religion or being critical of it is one thing but book burning is nothing to dismiss as
"light".

Book burning is a serious breach of principle. In the US, we are free to read whatever
we want without it being burnt. This is true with Mein Kampf or the Communist Manifesto,
Rush Limbaugh's or any other book.

Personally, I think more people ought to be familiar with the Qu'ran. This so-called "pastor"
is obviously not.

I may not agree with many books but to burn them is admitting that
they have a kind of power over the minds of the ones with the matches.
