    BUT, NOT our American flag.
    I guess this make me a hypocrite.
    We , and the Islamics, need a good shot of sensitivity.
    A "better people" will not go around burning things , including people...
    Remember the 1600s ?
    A better people will respect other people and the things they hold dear...
    My vote was " I do not know"...
    I think a law against disrespect is something too difficult to enforce....
    A better people is a better answer..
    Is this so hard ?

    you know what l mean

    such images seem so psychotic

    Not to me, they don't. What is truly psychotic is posting youtube videos of beheadings. Or issuing fatwas against writers or cartoonists. Or calling for the murder of as many people as possible just because someone lit a stupid book on fire.

    Sure. But I'm guessing the church leaders would toss him out.

    Those things are all about keeping the people in power in power. The circus part of the bread and circuses.

    There is this tiny thing called the First Amendment. (Not that our rights mean much anymore though)

    No, that's not why I'd want him kicked out. He would be disrupting services.

    Books aren't holy. Objects aren't holy. Holiness isn't found in tangible things.

    You think? I think a little less "sensitivity" about such things is in order. You cannot expect to be sheltered from offensive actions. You want to make being offensive against the law? Ridiculous.

    There are those in this world who think other-wise , Islamics for one, extremists for another.

    Sensitivity is the answer...for both sides.
