This weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested that he'd like to see Congress consider doing something about burning the Quran.
Lindsey Graham On Koran Burning: “Freedom Of Speech Is A Great Idea But We’re In A War.”On Face The Nation today, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said that the reaction to the Koran burning in Florida suggests that Congress should look into limiting some forms of speech
[Sen. Graham said,] “I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II, we had limits on what you could say if it would inspire the enemy. So, burning a Koran is a terrible thing but it doesn’t justify killing someone. Burning a Bible would be a terrible thing but it doesn’t justify murder. Having said that, anytime we can push back here in America against actions like this that put our troops at risk we should do it, and I look forward to working with Senators Kerry, and Reid, and others to condemn this, condemn violence all over the world based on the name* of religion. But General Petreaus understand better than anybody else in America what happens when something like this is done in our country and he was right to condemn it and I think Congress would be right to reinforce what General Petreasus said.”
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?
