Catholic News Agency: “Although the charismatic Christian church planning a Koran burning on Sept. 11 only has around 50 members, the spectre of the impact on Muslim relations led the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue to issue a statement today expressing its ‘great concern’ over the plan and stating that ‘deplorable acts of violence … cannot be counteracted’ by burning another religion’s sacred book.”
