Whew…Pastor calls off burning of the Koran

About bloody time, if you ask me…I’ve been half-engaged in a desultory Facebook exchange with a chap who thinks it’s all foolishness, and says we’re all idiots for getting our dander up for what is, after all, the pastor’s constitutional right to burn whatever book he wants to burn.  No one’s contesting that, but I don’t think that just become someone has the  legal right to do something that they therefore derive a moral right as well.  And in principle I’m strongly against mocking or desecrating other folks’ religions.  On the other hand, apparently the majority of folks in New York City want the community center relocated, go figure.
