The vast vast majority of Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are opposed to this act.

If a Muslim cleric decided to do this same thing in an arab country, would the vast majority of the Muslims in that country implore that Muslim cleric to exercise some restraint and to respect the beliefs of Christians? I seriously doubt it.
