Religious (and All) Book Burning

"There is only one religion of book burning. Whatever the book--a text from any religion, a novel, a philosophical treatise, a poem--those who cast it into the flames stand arm-in-arm with Goebbels on a square in Berlin worshipping at the altar of hatred. . . ." ~~John Ralston Saul, International PEN President

You can read the full text of his response to the threatened burning of the Quran at his site here.

And thank you to StephanieD at Misfit Salon for pointing me to this quote.

Thanks for posting about this, Maria. I will be on pins and needles tomorrow, waiting on whether or not the pastor keeps his word.
