Daniel says tearing up a Koran would be a "...gratuitously offensive act." That seems like a perfect act for a 'perfectly offensive" , yea vile, book. There are dozens of examples of hate speech in the Koran. In fact it may be the preeminent example of 'hate speech' in the entire world. Tear away people.
