Is This Sort of Thing Really Necessary?

From The Sacramento Bee:

As 18 doves flew into the skies over the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament Saturday night, more than 100 diverse Sacramentans blessed copies of the Quran with roses of love.

Again and again they uttered the refrain, "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me" at the entrance to the downtown church framed by white statues of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. A musician with a white guitar accompanied them.

Representatives of Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, B'hai, Mormon, Sikh, Vedic Druid and Muslim beliefs read scriptures from the great religious texts - including six verses from the Quran calling for all faiths to live in harmony. . .

Father Anthony Garibaldi of St. Francis Church said the blessing of the Quran tonight "needs to be done -
on a human level you don't desecrate other peoples' holy objects. I wouldn't want my Bible burned.

If you don't like the idea of Korans being burned, then don't burn them. Tell other folks not to burn them. Why, why, why, why, though, the need to bless the Koran? Why place a blessing on a object that spreads falsehoods about God? Why call a book holy that clearly teaches blasphemy about Our Blessed Lord?

You don't want your Bible burned? Yeah, me neither. Because the Bible holds teachings of Divine Truth. That Truth mandates that I believe the Koran is false and therefore not holy.Just because Islam thinks the book is holy doesn't make it so, and their opinions to that effect shouldn't lead us to treat it that way.

This kind of crap stinks of apostasy.
