Burning books

I read today that there is a pastor in Florida that burned copies of the Koran and is now receiving death threats. Reading this made me incredibly sad. How is that we are such intolerant people?

I don't care what you believe but burning another religions holy book isn't the way getting your point across. Not only that, but does this guy honestly believe that burning books is going to stop Muslim's? Would burning the bible stop Christians?

Of course not. You know why? Because people love their faith and they love their God. They love their faith so much that they are willing to die for it. On both sides. It's just a shame it has to come to that. Why can't we see that through our differences there is beauty. That no matter what God or doctrine we believe in we're all still people. People who need to re-read those holy books we hold so dear.
