Editorial: Burning plan is an ill-advised proposal


A Florida pastor's plan to burn copies of the Quran, the holy book of the Islam religion, has succeeded in promoting a minor Christian church of about 50 members.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the pastor's right to burn anything he wants within the scope of local laws, whether it be the Quran, the Holy Bible or the American flag for that matter.

As a staunch defender of the First Amendment, we defend the right of any American to speak one's belief.
