Maybe Christians globally should go Ape*Snip and start attacking and rampaging mosques and embassies or worse....
I think people of real faith understand you can't put an infinite God in a box or ummm, book rather.

Isn't this just another form of free speech?
So it's ok when it's done to Muslims but not ok when done to Christians.

Burn as many bibles as he'd like, more power to him.
He is expressing himself, it is the right of every human.
Speech should never just be limited to what you believe is right.
I wish him the best of luck with that, as a christian this doesn't even offend me, strikes me more as a childish act (much like that movie was) and the action of one man does not encompass his entire religion.
Hell if he needed a bible to burn Id send him one, My God is not in a book, and hes powerful enough he doesn't need me to get his back for him for every little slight against him.

It's important to remember that it is only a small segment (out of the worldwide Muslim population) causing trouble. However, as you correctly suggested, the number is significant enough to warrant concern from the global community. (A conservative figure of 1% would be about 16 million Extremists, a liberal figure of 10% would be about 160 million Extremists.)
I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people.
China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a war-mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across Southeast Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians - most killed by sword, shovel and bayonet.
We are told again and again by experts and talking heads that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unquantified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history...It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or execute honor killings. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the “peaceful majority” is the “silent majority,” and it is cowed and extraneous.

"True and very well said."
How can you agree with burning knowledge, even if it is a bible. Its just not the done thing in modern society.

Besides, ours was a religion predicated upon love and forgiveness - not war. That's why we have the high moral ground here.
