3000 Korans probably cost $15000. Could have fed a few homeless people with that cash.

I don't know why he was arrested.

Probably because he was heading out to start a large fire in a park. Or maybe at this level it can be interpreted as conspiracy to incite a riot or something.

So a guy walks into a park and says "i'm burning 3000 qurans, and you can't stop me"

Another guy walks into the same park and says "i'm burning 3000 bibles, and you can't stop me"

Then a third guy walks into the same park wearing Nazi attire says "The era of extreme Jewish intellectualism is now at an end. The breakthrough of the German revolution has again cleared the way on the German path...The future German man will not just be a man of books, but a man of character. It is to this end that we want to educate you. As a young person, to already have the courage to face the pitiless glare, to overcome the fear of death, and to regain respect for death - this is the task of this young generation. And thus you do well in this midnight hour to commit to the flames the evil spirit of the past. This is a strong, great and symbolic deed - a deed which should document the following for the world to know - Here the intellectual foundation of the November Republic is sinking to the ground, but from this wreckage the phoenix of a new spirit will triumphantly rise."

They all get arrested.

Ummm... scripture is the cause of millions of deaths. You'd be surprised by the number of religious extremists that value the words in their holy scriptures more than they value human life.

Because everytime he tries one of his stupid little anti-Islamic stunts, it sparks off violence in the Middle East against Americans. As your link says, he "repeatedly has ignored pleas from the U.S. military asking him not to stage his protests. Military officials say his actions put American and Western troops in Afghanistan and elsewhere in danger."

So, the fact is, he knows damn well that his actions will cause incitement to violence, mainly against his fellow Americans, so that also makes his actions a security risk against American armed forces stationed in the Middle East. Under the 'fighting words' doctrine, (established in 1942 by a 9-0 decision during the Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire case) he can be (and was) arrested before he carried out his obvious intentions to put his fellow Americans at risk.

Thought you meant the guy from Monty Python. This makes more sense.


Y'mean the guy who directed a film called 'Life of Brian' that was banned in many British cinemas because it was considered to be 'blaphemous' rather than this guy who was involved in the promotion of a movie vilifying Islam, called 'Innocence of Muslims' that sparked off riots in resulting in the storming of the American embassy in Egypt?

Burning all those books would probably also be considered a bonfire.
You would probably need some kind of permit to do that in a public park.

Maybe he should pour pigs blood onto the Koran. I'd say to pour it from a left shoe, but I think that's Arab thing, dunno if it's in the Koran or not.

Maybe he should just go out to the Middle East and insult Muslims to their face rather than being a coward and risking the lives of other Americans in the Middle East instead.

What's not to understand? He's saying we'd have to use all the trees to make paper for all the bibles/korans/etc we'd need to print to be able to burn one for each casualty of religion.

Of course this is silly, because we'd probably just download them onto Kindles and burn those instead.
