Good morning, Netizens…
In this morning’s David Horsey cartoon, we are called upon to take a long look into the mirror the better to see two clerics, each bearing their individual animosities. Granted, the zealot who threatened to burn a copy of the Koran has now stated he no longer will consider continue his plot, but the ugly match between the two religious worlds is still quite striking.
It should be noted that the Koran is most-simply put just a book, published around the world and representative of the Islamic Faith, much the same as the American flag is representative of the United States of America. Zealotry has its price, regardless of which side of the mirror you stand on.
Either way, whether the mirror depicts Islamic or fundamentalist Christian beliefs, you still see hatred; you do not see the Godlike quality both religions espouse, and thus we are playing with fire.
