While I am proud to live in a country where Freedom of Speech & Expression are protected, and while I absolutely agree with all citizens of the United States having access to that protected freedom, let me say this...
Any man who says he is a holy man, and publicly would set fire to the Quran, or any other holy book, is NOT a holy man.
In a world where anger and hatred seem to be running rampant, no holy book, work, image, or idea is without merit. We need all of them for contemplation and balance. You do not have to believe what your neighbors believe. You do not need to understand it. You simply must be grateful that Good Books are a part of our values. All roads lead us to someplace. All of them.
I do not ask you to believe in God/Goddess and completely accept your views if you don't; each of us must believe what we truly believe. I simply wish for all of us to believe in goodness and the rightness of our Human Nature and support each other along our journey to enlightenment.
Namaste' Till Next Time,
