BOOK-BURNING BLASPHEMER

Europeans need to be careful when choosing barbecue fuel:
A man who filmed himself burning the Quran has become the first person to be charged under Denmark’s blasphemy law in 46 years.
The 42-year-old filmed himself burning a copy of Islam’s holy book in his back yard in December 2015. He then posted the video on the anti-Islamic Facebook group, “Yes to freedom – no to Islam” along with the words, “Consider your neighbour: it stinks when it burns.”
 
Danish prosecutor Jan Reckendorff announced his decision to bring charges in a press statement issued on Wednesday afternoon. 
 
“It is the prosecution’s view that circumstances involving the burning of holy books such as the Bible and the Quran can in certain cases be a violation of the blasphemy clause, which covers public scorn or mockery of religion.”
What century is this?
