Quran Burning Does Not Follow the Practice of Religious Tolerance

"Where men burn books, they shall soon burn people," — Nuremberg rallies, Nazi Germany.
Intolerance and incitement to violence is not the way to honor the people of 911. The Quran is a religious document. You don't have to agree with it, but respect is called for.
What would you do if the same religious leader chose to burn Bibles? America is a place of religious tolerance. Burning anyone's holy document is not the American way.
Hate and bigotry don't belong in any church, nor should they be preached by anyone professing Christianity. The wise person will shun the evil ways of a false leader. Our civil authorities and police should actively condemn any action that incites violence and civil unrest. It is time to act. Inaction only helps the wrongdoer to succeed.
