Texas Rev Now Plans to Burn Copies of The God Delusion instead of the Koran

http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/bookburning-sh...

The Texan pastor's moved on from the Koran to a pyre of The God Delusion.

IN SCENES of calm bemusement not seen in the lower United States since John Scopes taught innocent schoolchildren evolution, it was reported yesterday that Pastor Terry Jones had given up on his plans to burn 200 Korans and was instead planning to incite atheists by soaking a gross of Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion in moonshine and putting a match to them.

Atheists, who hadn't been expected to come out in pick-up trucks with gun racks on their rear windows and circle his church with their engines revving like goaded Rottweilers, didn't.

As long as those books were paid for it matters not what people do with them. It's their property after all. It just goes to show the vast difference between the mentalities of muslims and people in the western nations.
Isn't Pastor Terry Jones in the United States, a western nation? I would say more like there is a vast difference between ANY fundamentalist religion and free thinkers.
I guess if he buys them he's helping the cause at least that much. Dawkins should send him a thank you letter for helping the Atheist cause. The local paper should print the story "Local pastor supports Atheism by perchasing every copy of The God Delusion from book story!"
like!
that's ok with me..atheists wont get as upset as religious people would over a book burning.

I'd only be offended if he started burning brand new science text books.

I say let him cause a scene. the more he bitches and moans about his religion, the more people will see that he's a loon.
Meh.

EDIT: Ah, I see it is satire! Nice. Love the quotes.
That’s actually good publicity for Dawkins and his book. Good for him !
You really can't fix stupid....
I wish I'd published a best seller. He could burn the whole damned lot for all I care as long as he paid for them first. He's probably enjoyed the brief notoriety and wants to prolong it but he's only made himself a laughing stock.
This guy is just an attention whore.
How funny. He's probably pretty upset at the lack of response :)

Hilarious piece of satire.
yes, and we seem to be proud of it (and rightly so IMO)
