Contrasting Religious Response

Christian Bibles are burned.  The response is to express sorrow, be thankful if no one is hurt…and send more Bibles.

A pastor of a small church in Florida burns a Koran.  The response is sorrow…and anger, rioting and people die.

No one is concerned about Christians erupting in violence if their sacred book is burned.

Last summer, when a pastor in Florida first announced that he was going to burn a Koran there was widespread concern about how Muslims around the world would respond to the image of their sacred scripture being burned.  There was legitimate fear that such an image would evoke violence and strengthen the resolve of terrorist groups that already call America the
“Great Satan”.

It is an interesting contrast in religious response to the same action.
