Classroom Incident Sparks First Amendment Debate - News Story - WISC Madison

Of course, this wanna-be librarian thinks tearing up a book is sacrilege but would I feel threatened by someone ripping pages out of the Bible? Doubtful unless maybe if it had some significant historical import...and I knew that was why said person was desecrating the book. Then, I would consider the act one of terrorism -- to use a much overused word. And that would be equally true for historic books I know to considered sacred or valued by others even if I don't follow or know the belief system.
