Atheist burns Bible and Koran

Now it’s the turn of an Aussie atheist lawyer to burn other people’s sacred books. May God have mercy on our impoverished world.

A number of conclusions:

  1. A university education is insufficient proof of being educated. 
  2. Some people are simply stupid and insensitive. 
  3. Can we all be tempted to imbecility by 15 minutes of fame?
  4. Lawyers . . . 
  5. Will we ever learn to live together in harmony? 

A Queensland university lawyer videoed himself apparently smoking joints made with pages of the Bible and the Koran.

In the clip, entitled Bible or Koran – which burns best?, the professed atheist says burning religious books is no big deal and people need to get over it. . . . the Bible and the Koran are “just books”.

“With respect to books like the Bible and the Koran, whatever, just get over it,” he says.

“That said, I don’t think (burning the Bible and the Koran) is completely appropriate unless it’s done for a good purpose, which I’ve done (by smoking them) today.”

He defended the stunt, saying basic freedoms, such as freedom of speech, should not be threatened simply because someone might be offended.
