Correct. I have no problem with people converting to Islam (besides the obvious spiritual reservations), as long as they are not forced. However, as we have seen killing 'em with niceness isn't Islams MO.
I think that is the general attitude of most people, I'm not worried this single event will break out into something fucked up. However, like I alluded (side note: to all those asking who the Lion is, I am talking about non-Islam) if they keep nipping at the heel of the lion, the lion eventually goes full retard. This is France right now, and soon it'll jump from one country to the next.
No, I suppose if you're looking at body count, guy dancing on a high altar is not as bad as nuclear war.
It's sacrilege, straight blasphemy though. It just frustrates me that someone would think this is acceptable without consequences and the fact that no one is really saying anything about it. He did enter the building with malicious intent, if not broke into the Church.
P.S. To those who asked about the mercy thing, Pope JPII asked God to have mercy on the man that tried to assassinate him. So, not sure why I wouldn't ask God for mercy for such offense.
