    If legislation were proposed making it illegal to burn or destroy the Quran (at least publicly) would you support it?

    Follow up question, would such legislation may survive a Constitutional challenge?
    no and no.

    Our service men and women are already at risk. Hence the 2000+ Coalition casualties to date.

    I lost a lot of respect for Gen. Petraeus over what he said the other day re: the Koran burning incident. He chastised the obscure preacher with a flock of 50 in the middle of Florida but neglected to condemn the cold-blooded murderers in the harshest of terms. A post I saw said it all quite succinctly. The poster suggested that Petraeus should have simply said instead that we value and embrace freedom of speech but we do not condone murder.

    Furthermore - free speech IMO is just the excuse. If the pastor hadn't burned the Koran there would be a myriad of other excuses to justify the violence. This whole thing started long before Koran burning was even a gleam in Pastor Jones' eye.

    If we are to follow Petraeus' line of reasoning (and excuse making) a Christian would be justified in murdering the artists who created "Piss Christ", the ant covered crucifix or the Virgin Mary created out of cow dung and those same artists would bear full blame for the violence.
