Liberals: ‘It’s Okay To Burn The Bible, Just PLEASE Don’t Burn The Holy Koran’

April 5, 2011

This is just another example of the breathtaking liberal ignorance and moral stupidity of the mainstream media.

We’ve got Time Magazine world editor Bobby Ghosh explaining on MSNBC’s “Hardball” that burning a copy of the Qur’an was “much more inflammatory than burning a Bible” because of the greater spiritual significance of the Qur’an.

Here is a transcript via Mediaite:

GHOSH: The thing to keep in mind that`s very important here is that the Koran to Muslims, it is not — it is not the same as the Bible to Christians.

The Bible is a book written by men. It is acknowledged by Christians that it is written by men. It`s the story of Jesus.

TODD: Yes.

GHOSH: But the Koran, if you are a believer, if you`re a Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man. It is transcribed, is directly the word of God.

That makes it sacred in a way that it`s hard to understand if you`re not Muslim. So the act of burning a Koran is much more — potentially much, much more inflammatory than –

TODD: Directly attacking — directly attacking God.

GHOSH: — than if you were to burn a — burn a Bible.

TODD: Directly attacking God.

If you buy Time Magazine, allow me to correctly label you a DUMBASS.  You’ve got the international editor of Time ignorantly claiming that Christians don’t believe the Bible is “the Word of God,” and you’ve got the MSNBC host first agreeing with him that the Bible is just a book written by men and then trying to help Ghosh make his point by repeatedly saying “Directly attacking God” like some kind of particularly idiotic jihadist-trained parrot.

Muslims do not claim that God wrote the Qur’an and handed it to Mohammed.  Rather, they claim that a human being wrote it under an angel named Gabriel’s direction.

Here are a number of passages – and hardly an exhaustive list by any means – about the Bible:

‘Thy word I have treasured in my heart that I might not sin against Thee’ (Psalm 119:11)

‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’ (Math 4:4).

“The word of God is alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword…” (Heb 4:12).

“So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11).

“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Pet 1:23).

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). 

‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work’ (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

I want you to carefully note that NONE of these passages is speaking about Allah or the Qur’an.  In fact, neither existed yet.  Muhammad had not yet been born to invent him and pirate Judaism and Christianity to fabricate his own religion.  And the doctrine of the inspiration of the Holy Bible is merely one of the things that Muhammad pirated.  In addition to Abraham and Jesus, Muhammad frankly even pirated the angel Gabriel whom he claimed dictated the Qur’an to him (Daniel 8:16; 9:21; Luke 1:11–19).  They ALL came from the HOLY Bible long before they had anything to do with the Qur’an.

I would submit that, given that the Qur’an plagiarized large portions of the Bible, whereas the writers of the Bible – both the human and the ultimate Divine behind their writings – would regard the Qur’an as incoherent rubbish, it should be rather obvious which of the two is truly “holy” and which is not.

I’ve read the Qu’ran.  It is virtual gibberish.  I couldn’t agree more with Robert Spencer in his description of the Qur’an in The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion:

“reading the Qur’an is in many places like walking in on a conversation between two people with whom one is only slightly acquainted.  When Islamic apologists say terrorists quote the Qur’an on jihad ‘out of context,’ they neglect to mention that the Qur’an itself often offers little context.  Frequently it makes reference to people and events without  bothering to explain what’s going on” (p. 20-21).

And Spencer proceeds to offer an example which proves just how muddy and indecipherable the Qur’an truly is.  Without a vast collection of volumes of very human Islamic tradition called the Haddith, nobody would have any idea of what is being said about what.

The Bible, by contrast, stands on its own.  And the best interpreter of the Bible is the Bible.  Commentaries are certainly useful for helping one understand a few passages here or there.  But with the Qur’an, they are utterly essential for having so much as the vaguest clue.

Do you ever notice how often mainstream media “journalists” who would NEVER refer to the “holy” Bible due to their “journalistic objectivity” invariably bow and scrape before Muslims lest they be murdered for failing to say “the holy Qur’an”???

Is it merely fear, or is it that journalists – who are far more atheist than the general population – agreeing with the most fanatic jihadist Muslims that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”  With said common enemy being Judeo-Christianity???

Then there’s the manner in which these “journalists” have tried to create the perception that a crackpot preacher of a tiny church is more guilty of murder than the intolerant religion of hate that just racked up another 21 innocent murder victims.

I mean, who doesn’t go attack a U.N. compound and murder people who had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the thing you claim to be angry about, anyway?

Let me further ridicule the ignorant Time Magazine international editor who stupidly said that Christians don’t mind Bible burning as much because, after all, we don’t think the Bible is God’s book.  How about Jesus versus Muhammad?  Christians don’t just rightly call Jesus “the Word” (John 1:1-3), but they believe Him to be the Son of God, who assumed a human nature to free us from sin and death.  Do Muslims regard Muhammad as God?  As far as I know, they don’t.  And yet guess who didn’t turn into a murderous mob when their God was placed in a jar of urine and called “art” by secular humanist liberals???  If you guessed the same Christians who don’t erupt into a murderous frenzy whenever someone burns a Bible, you win a prize!!!

In other words, the problem isn’t so much that some nutjob burned a Qur’an; the real problem is that Muslims are murderers who can’t control their demonic urge to murder at any provocation.

Some liberals are so completely morally stupid that they think we should turn our backs with a wink and a nod while 1.6 billion Muslims annihilate Israel.  What they stupidly refuse to understand is that Israel is only the “LITTLE” Satan; America is the GREAT Satan.  We’ll have to go too.  Oh, and England will have to go.  And France.  And pretty much all of Western Europe.  And if it’s okay, anyone who doesn’t bow down and confess that Allah is greater, and Muhammad is his prophet.

As Spencer pounts out, Islam is a truly intolerant and violent religion.  Don’t burn our Qur’ans or we’ll riot and murder.  Don’t draw cartoons or we’ll riot and murderDon’t send female journalists to report the news or we’ll gang-rape and riot and murder.  Or at least beat the women with clubs.  And, of course, don’t oppose Islam or we’ll murder your women and children.  It is frankly amazing how “journalists” who claim to stand for free spech and free expression will so willingly if not eagerly censor themselves in the face of fundamentalist Islamic intolerance while so “courageously” attacking peaceful Christians and the Judeo-Christian worldview that made free speech and freedom of expression possible in the first place.

If you’re reading Time Magazine or watching MSNBC, you are trusting abject moral morons to inform you about the world.  And it’s frankly little wonder you’re so pathetically ignorant.

Finally, there’s Barack Hussein.  He falsely claims that he’s a Christian, but the man who routinely refers to “the holy Koran” has never once used the phrase “the Holy Bible” and has in fact even mocked the Bible in a way that he would never dare do to the Qur’an.

Men like Barack Obama and Bobby Ghosh are cowards and weasels.  And it’s long past time to expose them as such.
