Subject: RE: BS: Burning Korans
McGrath, the flag is a symbol of an idea, and most Americans think the idea is a pretty good one.
Some Americans view flag-burning as an assault on the idea, and it outrages them. Most Americans realize that there is a difference between a noble concept and a piece of cloth, and react accordingly.

I find it unbelievable that this petty bible-thumper in Forida has been able to engage legitimate political and religious leaders in high-level meetings through his little hate exercise. He has gained enormous recognition and some completely unwarranted political capital, and to imagine that no one else will attempt to do the same is naive.
