Rod Dreher on Koran Burning

Rod Dreher has a very balanced look at the recent burning of the Koran by a crackpot pretending to be a minister of the Gospel. Dreher correctly notes that the mob who killed the UN workers in protest over the burning of their sacred book are fully responsible for their crime. But, he also points out that pseudo-pastor Jones bears his share of moral, and specifically religious, culpability for the violence. Desecrating what someone else holds as sacred is inhumane.
