Burn the Koran Day and other news…

Terry Jones, the Pastor from the Dove World Outreach Center is preparing to burn Korans on September 11 as part of his “Burn the Koran Day” campaign. I just love religious crackpots of all faiths. On the website is an entry that lists 10 Reasons to Burn a Koran paraphrased below:

  1. Jesus is not God and was not resurrected
  2. The Koran is unholy and does not have an eternal origin
  3. The Koran teaches Arabian idolatry, paganism, rites and rituals
  4. Islamic writings are confused, contradictory, and inconsistent
  5. Mohamed was corrupted by power and worldly ambitions
  6. Islamic law is totalitarian in nature
  7. Islam is not compatible with democracy and human rights
  8. Muslims cannot leave Islam
  9. Islam teaches hate to the West
  10. Islam is a weapon of Arab imperialism and Islamic colonialism

I’ve always held that there is nothing more hilarious than listening to religious cranks attack other religions. I mean, can’t they feel any dissonance? Can’t they sense the irony? Don’t they have the capacity to perceive that any accusations they level against other faiths are equally applicable to their own?


On another note, it seems the Hariri prodigal son has decided to absolve Syria of any responsibility in his father’s murder. Thank you dimwits for stopping the clock and wasting our times for a full 5 years; now, can we fucking move on?
