Humans must not have learned from the Holocaust. During the Nazi regime, millions of books were burned to deny Germans the ability to read the ideas of others, and form opinions based on that knowledge.
Now a church in Florida, Dove World Outreach Center, is planning to burn copies of the Qu'ran in protest over what the call the work of the devil. Now, I may or may not believe that, but if history has taught us any thing it is that the suppression of ideas by force only fuels those ideas, like gasoline on a fire. While they have the right, I suppose, to burn anything which does not consitute a danger to people, (which evidently it does), I do oppose their reasoning. Article is here...
There has been a lot of talk and interest in the so called "Lost Gospels" in the media especially the History Channel. They were never "lost". The ideas contained therein, it was realized were false. They were religated to the dust bin of history.
The Qu'ran is false, it too will be relegated to the dustbin.
