Candace de Russy quotes Bill Donohue quoting PZ Myers, who is purported to have said that desecration of the Koran and desecration of the Eucharist are “different.” Donohue is quoting out of context. One can find a full quote here:
MnIndy: What about the stories of US military personnel urinating on and otherwise abusing copies of the Koran in Iraq? Were you outraged by that, or is that a different version of this for you?
Myers: There’s a subtle difference there — maybe an important difference. I don’t favor the idea of going to somebody’s home or to something they own and possess and consider very important, like a graveyard — going to a grave and desecrating that. That’s something completely different. Because what you’re doing is doing harm to something unique and something that is rightfully part of somebody else — it’s somebody else’s ownership. The cracker is completely different. This is something that’s freely handed out.
As is clear from the quote, Myers has been asked about a very specific instance: one in which the desecration in question is conducted by prison guards to humiliate the prisoners. As is made clear on his blog, he is perfectly happy with people desecrating their own copies of the Koran, and moreover intends to do so himself.
