Whilst I don’t necessarily condone the burning of books, I don’t condemn it, either. If it’s how people wish to display their feelings, then let them do it. What shouldn’t happen, is that people get arrested for doing it, which has happened here, last week.

A teenage girl burned her copy of the Koran, and was subsequently arrested. Why was she arrested for expressing herself? She did nothing wrong.

It ain’t a crime to offend people.
