In the US, this Pastor Jones - with his indescribably stupid and irresponsible threat to burn the Koran - was pleaded with and pressed by politicians to stop.
But he was not banned.
He was not threatened by state officials with their coercive powers.
In the UK, however, he would probably have been arrested and possibly charged.
The arresting officers would probably not have given it a second thought.
Which way is the better way?
