False equivalence

Just for the record, Koran-burning and building Muslim community centers (or mosques) are not both unpleasant things we must “tolerate” for the sake of living in a free society. The former is an ugly, reactionary practice that, yes, must be tolerated, if people insist on doing it, for the sake of the First Amendment freedoms we cherish. The latter, however, is in general a positive good–people practicing their religion in peace with their neighbors and fostering service to and reconciliation within their community.
