Where's the Outrage?

The burning of the Quran will be held as planned.  Hilary Clinton condemned the action calling it a "disrespectful, disgraceful act."

Since 2007, when a Minnesota professor decided to call the Holy Eucharist a "freakin' cracker" and proceeded to solicit Eucharists to be sent to him in the mail, and  drove a nail through One and threw It in the garbage, widespread outrages have been committed against the Holy Eucharist. These have been chronicled on YouTube.

In 2009, according to a Wikipedia article, two Muslim reporters from Al-Islam participated in a Catholic Mass and received Holy Communion, which they then spat out and photographed. The resulting photo was then published in their May 2009 edition. Ultimately an apology was issued, but not from the reporters.

This Minnesotan professor never apologized, and neither did the university. Nor did the St. Cloud bishop comment.

Seems a bit imbalanced, but then again, when someone desecrates the Eucharist, lives aren't threatened. Only souls, and not just of those physically committing the crimes.
