Reader comment on item: Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

Submitted by Sandra Cianci (United States), May 20, 2005 at 17:05

Why is everyone so afraid of what the Muslims think? Freedom of religion means we are all EQUAL -- no one religion is any better than another, so why do the Muslims always have to get "special" consideration? What would you have done if the book in question was a Bible? Would the bookstore be eliminated from your company? I suspect that an apology and maybe a gift certificate would have been what you would have done in response to a complaint about a Bible so why not the same for the Koran? I don't knock the Muslims for trying all their ways to get special treatment, but I do knock the clear thinking businessmen that fall for it, you should know better! I am against any group-religion-sex- whatever that wants more rights than the rest of us. When you do things like this, it makes the everyday person out here very angry, just showing another way that every minority out there has more rights than the majority. You will make people racist by your actions! You overreacted! You bought in to the overly PC!
I love your company but this has given me a bad taste. There are other online companies I can buy from.
