Vatican paper: "No one burns the Quran"

The article summarized criticism from Catholic bishops, including Archbishop Lawrence John Saldanha of Lahore, Pakistan, who condemned the plan as "contrary to the respect owed all religions and against our doctrine and faith."

Pastor Terry Jones of the small, evangelical Dove World Outreach Center has said he will go ahead with plans to burn copies of Islam's holy book to protest the Sep 11 attacks, despite a warning from the top US general in Afghanistan that US troops would be endangered as a result.
