Quran burning leads to killings in Afghanistan
Posted by Letters editor
It doesn’t change me
Some people will start a war over anything —blaming someone or something else thinking it relieves them of the responsibility [“Burning of Quran a tool for Taliban,” page one, April 4].
The excuse that because someone insults them (i.e. burning their belief document) gives them the right to murder and fight is just ludicrous.
If someone or some organization decides to burn my belief document, it says a whole lot more about who they are than about who I am. It doesn’t give me permission or an excuse to hurt others. It also doesn’t change my beliefs.

In the name of true religion
A very small, extreme “Christian” group burns the Quran as they find it to be an offense against their true religion.
Due to that truly horrible act, extreme Islamists kill Christians where and when available, as those Christians are found to be an offense against their true religion.
Throughout history, organized religions have killed millions in the name of their true religions.
A pox on both their houses!
