Great Britain: Man Arrested for Burning the Qur'an

This is the problem those who support the condemnation of Terry Jones's act of burning the Qur'an will continue to run in to. Regardless of whether you believe he was right to do it, he had the right to do it. The next logical step if you accept the premise that Terry Jones had no right to burn the Qur'an is to criminalize the behavior. In Great Britain, a man burned a Qur'an in his own garage and was then arrested for having done so. There was a time when this sort of thing wouldn't have garnered the least bit of attention. What happened? It's called creeping Sharia and creeping Dhimmitude.

Via Daily Mail:
A senior member of the British National Party has been arrested for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran in his garage.

Sion Owens, a BNP candidate in the forthcoming Welsh Assembly elections, was charged under the Public Order Act.

He was said to have soaked the Islamic holy book in kerosene, set fire to it and watched it burn. Footage was then apparently circulated among extremists.

The alleged act, considered highly offensive to Muslims, comes after dozens died last week in riots fuelled by a similar Koran-burning incident in America.
Oddly enough, Bill Maher seems to be a consistent atheist on this issue. Fast forward to the 2:15 mark.
