Oh, fucking brilliant! This dude is my new hero. I wish I thought of it first though:

Brisbane atheist smokes pages from Koran and Bible

Although if Santa decided to relocate to Ground Zero, there might be a similar commotion?


What is Santa's holy book? The Macro catalogue? Or perhaps eBay? Bah! This whole burning thing this arsehole wants to do pisses me off

Bible or Koran - which burns best?

In sunny SA, it seems that religion trumps free speech once again:

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2010/0910/In-South-Africa-judge-outlaws-burning-Bibles-Qurans-other-holy-books

"The ruling also amounts to a ban in South Africa on the burning of any Bibles and other religious books."

So... what is the penalty for burning a "religious book?" Does this include works of "religious fiction" like "Left Behind?" What about "The God Delusion?"

How about shredding? Can I shred a bible and eat it?

Why not just ban the burning of any book? Wouldn't that be fairer?

Voltaire said, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

I disagree in principle with the burning of books.

However, perhaps the only way to defend the RIGHT to burn books is by exercising that right.
