(On the topic of banning Quarn Book-Burning)

Burning the BIBLE isn't banned, and it SHOULD be.

Let's keep PRIORITIES straight, people.

Ban the burning of the book of GOD long before ever considering a ban on a book of MYTH!!

Don't you imagine a Muslim would say the exact same thing, the other way around?

Burning books should always be legal. Freedom of speech. It's disgusting, but it should be legal.

If burning a Bible is allowed, then so should burning the Koran.

So you can't see how many people call your book a book myths.

The Koran has fewer myths than the Wholly Babble as it is far more to do with law and how to live ones life rather than a collection of random stories and sometimes absurd literary mumblings written by bronze age people.

Aside from the whole "book of God" thing (the Bible is just as much of a human-authored myth), I agree with the sentiment here. If burning the Q'uran is illegal then burning the Bible should be illegal. If burning the Bible is legal then burning the Q'uran should be legal. You can't treat the two books differently as that violates separation of church and state (See, fundies, that's not such a bad thing now is it?). Either all holy books can be burned or none can.

Talking about myths, are we?

Burning the Bible isn't banned in the USA.
Burning the Qur'an isn't banned in the USA
No problem.

These Qur'ans were burned in Afghanistan though. The USA is (technically) a liberal democracy. Afghanistan is not, nor is it likely to be so in any forseeable future. As much as the fundies might love to see the USA run on Afghan lines where Bible burning is illegal that isn't going to happen without a re-written Constitution.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is irony.

Burning the Qu'ran is one of the allowed ways for disposing of old copies of the book - although burial is preferred. What matters is intent.

Burning books because you happen to not agree with their content is evil.

Burning books because you need a fire, or are simply disposing of rubbish in an incinerator, is entirely reasonable.

If you'll arrange to burn both, I'll bring the marshmallows.

Burning ANY book, is a bad thing.

3/16/2012 2:21:52 PM


Aren't they both books of 'MYTH!!'?

Furthermore, why burn either? Both are excellent evidence against their own cults.

3/16/2012 2:57:09 PM

Did someone tell NewJerseyMom that the bible is a book of myth?

3/16/2012 3:08:23 PM


If irony could be converted to a fuel source the past ten years would have prouduced energy rival to that within a white dwarf star.

"Buring books should be illegal, except for the one's I like!"

Well, thanks a whole fucking bunch there, NJM; you just broke our irony meter...

I admit I wondered what the Quarn was. Something like "Lord of the Rings"? Now that I have been enlightened, I would say the civilized custom is to let the followers of a religion decide how to dispose of their scriptures. On the other hand, if you find a Quarn, I surely want to check it out.

If I'd been a CO in Afghanistan, I'd have offered the populace cases of bibles to burn, by way of apology.

Book burning means more in Arab and Islamic countries because books of any kind are much harder to come by.

I've read some of her other comments. She is either bat-shit insane or the goddess-empress of the trolls.

I fully agree. If a book can be demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt to be the actual words of god, then burning it can be banned.

And if it can't, then there should be no legal problem burning it. Lets see how this turns out...

3/16/2012 4:12:16 PM


Oh sweet irony.......

Bad Wolf

amazing that she could become so frothingly rabid at the thought of someone burning HER religious book, yet not see how other might have a similar reaction when THEIR religious book is burned.

Which brings up the obvious question: if someone reveres the BOOK that much isn't that perilously close to idolatry?

3/16/2012 4:25:26 PM


Does anyone, like me, suspect that the Christian fundamentalists secretly envy and admire Islamic fundamentalism and want to copy it?

3/16/2012 4:33:15 PM


This makes me wonder, if you have a copy of a digital version of the Qur'an, are you allowed to delete it?

If the Qur'an or the Bible are so fucking important to God, why doesn't he just implant them in everybody's brains at conception? Why bother with all this wussy revelation etc.

Gee, maybe God isn't so akbar as the religious want to have us believe.

Book burning is the act of an ignorant savage.
