These planned quran burnings were all over the news. I've heard that, in retaliation, some churches decided to read the quran instead. Has that happened? It's a pity the news was all about the burnings and none about the readings. Those churches should get a medal for open-mindedness.
Same thing about the mosque. What's the problem? I've also heard about someone wanting to build a gay pub next to it. I would love to see that happening. I'm in favour of both. Freedom is a two-edged sword.
I think in both cases the problem is about labeling. Those terrorists were muslims. Attack the muslims. The religion is just a label, we're not angry about them praying to Mecca instead of eastwards or about them building their temple with an onion-shaped tower instead of a steeple. We're angry because of those deaths.
And there's something wrong. The label is simply wrong. The terrorists are responsible for those deaths, not the muslims.
In Belgium it's all over the news: bishops and priests being prosecuted for sexual abuse. Why didn't we burn bibles? Why don't we oppose when there's a church being built?
If you're offended by this suggestion, you should be offended by the quran burning and the protests against the mosque too.
