Vatican: Burning Quran is outrageous, grave move

The Vatican has denounced as "outrageous and grave" plans by an American Christian minister to burn copies of the Quran to mark the Sept. 11 anniversary.


The Vatican office responsible for relations with Islam issued a stern statement Wednesday saying that every religion has the right to respect and protect its sacred books, places of worship and symbols.While deploring the terror attacks, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue said they "cannot be counteracted by an outrageous and grave gesture against a book considered sacred by a religious community."
