Pastor Terry Jones and the Burning of the Quran

I recently heard about Pastor Terry Jones, the pastor from Florida who wanted to burn a Quran, the Holy Book of Islam, tomorrow because he thinks that it’s evil. Personally, I think this guy is stupid. Did he even think about the consequences of his plans? If he did go through with it, he could have started a retaliation in the Middle Eastern countries that we’re in. Anyway, it’s one thing to believe that another religion is not the true religion or it’s evil, etc., but it’s not all right to burn its religious text or texts. And to top it off, to burn it on a day that is so culturally significant. However, even though I don’t condone it and strictly hypothetically speaking, if I were to burn the Quran in order to make a statement, I would have done it tomorrow, since it’s only the ninth anniversary. I would think it would be a more of a stronger statement if it was done next year, on the tenth anniversary. Of course, I would never burn the Quran. And if you’re wondering, there are different ways to spell the Quran.
