“I am tired of living among people who hate peace.” -Psalm 120:6
Apparently, an eccentric person wants to promote Koran burning this week.
What are your thoughts on this?
Not, “Does he have a right to do this?”
But rather, “Is it a good idea?”
We seem, as a society, to have a hard time separating those questions.
I would like to suggest that it has more to do with creating and cultivating a culture of respect.
Burning flags is a bad idea. Burning books is a bad idea. Building a new $100 million Islamic center a stone’s throw from Ground Zero is a bad idea.
It has to do with respect, dignity and common sense.
So how do we cultivate a respect-based culture without losing our civil liberties and freedom of speech and expression?
It’s your voice I want to hear on this blog. Please share your thoughts.
