If a "translation" isn't a really a true Koran, then would the destruction or banning of such, "Al-muhartik" or heretic texts still inspire outrage and violence?

A: Yes, yes it would.

Russia's senior Islamic clerics warned the country's leaders on Friday unrest could erupt in Muslim communities in Russia and beyond if a court decision ordering the destruction of a interpretive translation of Koran is not overturned.
Go figure.

1 "violence could erupt on Friday" does not mean bright and early Friday morning, it means after services at the mosques. after the imans give instructions to riot and services let out. Bugger that: as soon as the microphone picks up a call to violence the artillery battery should cut loose and kill the entire congregation all preemptive like. If some nice muzzlum family doesn't want to die then they should choose some other mosque without a radical Iman at the podium. Maybe they could go shopping at a nice mall, that sounds safe enough.

3 Another example of why people who can't behave with their religions need to relocate/stay in their countries where their is accepted widely. That goes for ALL of you! A good example would be christian fundies; they'd get along with the Taliban quite nicely. Go live there! You don't want science? Check. You don't women to study? Check! You both look at porn behind the scenes? Check! Every one of you/ALL of you Abrahamists are behaving like children. It was alleged that this country was to be free from religion, not just freedom of.

4 Well, Bomp!, you should go live in some nice athiest country like, uhm, i cannot think of one. Humans keep religions, it's what they do. Best if they keep just one but you turn your back for a quick camping trip on the mountain and it's Golden Calf time all over again. Your moral equivalence between fundamentalist Christians and the Taliban is just plain adolescent stupidity: grow up and lose some of your childish hate. Or Thor will thump you with his mighty hammer and you will have to change your name to "Thud!"

5 BOMP: May the Zoroastrian bird of paradise fly up thine nose!
May the Mystical elephant step on your toes, May pixie dust sprinkle your bones!
And May the Magical Unicorn shat skittles on your soul.
"Have a truly blessed and enchanted day!" :^D

6 obsidian: You forgot the "Yee Haw" part.

Storm: Constitution has freedom of religion built in to it. There is nowhere in the Constitution that requires it. Religion causes social problems. Religious people seem to not understand that a moral does not need to come from a bible, tora, koran. You really need an ancient psudo-document to make sure you're you don't behave like a psychopath at maximum or a typical douche at minimum? If you do...you have issues.
