What is a valid reason to lash out violently against someone who has offended your religious sensibilities?

Is burning a holy book reason enough? What about blasphemy against your God? What about enacting legislation that violates your religious beliefs?

Just what is a valid reason to lash out violently against someone who has offended your religious sensibilities?

BQ: Is it reasonable to apply tests to religious beliefs by deliberately going against them to see how the followers react? (for example, burning a holy book to see if the "peaceful" followers will remain peaceful)

There is no valid reason. Good thing only a tiny minority of believers react to being offended with violence.

What do you think about Italian people?

I am from Italy, but I am really interested in your opinion, even if it is bad.

Please, speak freely, possibly without offending too much

Answer on What do you think about Italian people?

i think they are people just like everyone else. I think most Blacks, Italians, and Latinos have a very strong connection to family that is something we have in common. And we love our traditional dishes. I am from New Orleans so traditional for me is Red beans, Gumbo, Jambalaya, and Etoufee to nam a few!
