Walking a very fine line

In this WND story, a group of British Christians want to use the hate crimes law to ban the Quran.

While I agree that the Quran, sunnah, and hadith have statements that encourage radical and violent Islamists, attempting to ban it is a mistake. Let's say they win, the next target could be the fire and brimstone preacher. Then a radical Hindu. Next? A Christian who would dare say in a public forum that such-n-such behavior is a sin.

You don't think they would target Christians more than anyone else? They would. Why? First, Christians tend to be the majority. They also tend to be more outspoken and thus make themselves targets.
