Spokane’s answer to burning Korans

If you're getting tired about the amount of coverage some Florida preacher with a congregation smaller than a high school football team can get by saying he'll burn some Korans, join the club.

So without mentioning the questionably reverend by name, we'll mention that the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane has a counter demonstration scheduled for Saturday in downtown at the Main Street Fair, on Main between Division and Brown.

From 4:15 to 4:30 p.m., and again from 5:15 to 5:30 p.m., they plan to offer "two short programs of readings and prayers from faiths and secular traditions from around the world calling for inclusion, respect and peace... Community members will deliver readings from Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Humanist and other traditions and will read the First Amendment of the Constitution. "

Proof that wise people do not fight fire with fire. They fight fire with water.
