30 Days of Blasphemy - Day 7 - Dove World Church

Straight up - I want to apologize. The video below is from those Cuckoo for Coco-Puffs Christians at the Dove World Church. Who? These are the people who are doing Burn the Koran Day this Saturday on the anniversary of 9/11. I found this nugget on their website.



What I really like is the kick-ass soundtrack and the good pastor's Saint Crispin Day speech (I'm also sorry the the heavy nerd/Shakespeare reference... but Goddamit I love Henry V) that makes me want to say. "Yes! I will follow your mumbo and the jumbo to the end of the world!"

Oy.

But being on the Dove World Church site is like going out drinking with your loud mouth friend who doesn't know when to shut up. There is just one crazy bat-sh*t rambling statement after the other.

Why yes I do have an example. This is the reason why they feel justified burning the Koran.

From Acts 19 (Amplified)

18Many also of those who were now believers came making full confession and thoroughly exposing their [former deceptive and evil] practices.
19And many of those who had practiced curious, magical arts collected their books and [throwing them, book after book, on the pile] burned them in the sight of everybody. When they counted the value of them, they found it amounted to 50,000 pieces of silver (about $9,300).
20Thus the Word of the Lord [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] grew and spread and intensified, prevailing mightily.
Very good. Their Sky Fairy says it's OK so it must be so. Using this reasoning one can justify burning any book that doesn't have the God stamp of approval.

At this point I hope I have enough Atheist street-cred that when I say, "Gosh, burning books isn't a sign of a civilized society," other Atheists think I've gone soft. I'm not arguing that these Christians don't have a right to burn the Koran what I am saying is that this action will pull more more moderate Muslims into the radical camp (the same argument I've used for the Ground Zero Mosque).

Signing off...

in Purgatory.
