    Not that I agree with what he did, but they clearly have no time to tolerate his freedom to burn the Qur'an. Dirty racist hypocrites - I'm sure if an Asian fellow burnt a Bible there would be no such repercussion.

    Exactly!

    I'm just waiting on what his punishment will be. I do remember a £50 fine was given to a poppy burner while the other one wasn't punished whatsoever...

    I don't really understand why you would want to burn one :\

    anyway, in my view, freedom of speech doesn't include the freedom to deliberately offend other people's culture, religion or traditions

    the world isn't perfect, there is something called diplomacy and countries have to try to be friends with other countries, even if that means offending a few individuals or treating them unfairly

    sucks, I know

    Whilst I agree with the fact that it is a waste of time, I still stand up for his right to express himself and his liberty to view any religion as he so pleases. Arresting him simply for expressing his views is extremely authoritarian and totalitarian by the government.

    watch how the medieval muslims now go on a rampage murdering dozens of people -- then watch how the politicians condemn the book burner for causing the trouble.


    funny, when those pitch fork waving muslims went on a rampage the other week, they burnt bibles. so, why no outrage in the christian world??

    No comment on arresting him, I just think he's an idiot.

    I believe people should be free to do whatever they want unless their actions affect the freedoms of others. No matter how blatantly retarded and provocative.

    Islam teaches me to exercise peace. God revealed the holy Quran, and will ensure it is unchanged.

    The man burning it probably has not read any verses, or understands it at all.

    He will account with his Lord, i condemn it heavily, but it will be God who will deal with him.
