Tor, how exactly does ownership matter here?
Seems like Christian whining enforced by law to me.

It matters greatly. If one owns something and burns it they, obviously don't venerate it. That goes for statues, Bibles, Korans or any other such thing. If you want to venerate a Bible, Koran buy one of your own or find one that is set out for public veneration (like the statue in question). If you want to burn one get one of your own and burns it, as a substantial segment of the population can't venerate something you own unless you offer it up for said purpose, you would be in the clear.
"if he intentionally desecrates any other object of veneration by the public or a substantial segment thereof..."
