I just read about this. What do ya'll think of it.
SYDNEY (AFP) – An Australian lawyer tore pages from the Koran and the Bible and smoked them on YouTube, days after a US pastor's threat to burn Islam's holy book triggered deadly protests and global condemnation.
In a 12-minute clip entitled "Bible or Koran -- which burns best?" Alex Stewart, who belongs to an atheist group, holds up the Christian and Muslim holy books before tearing out pages and smoking them.
At one point he lights what looks like a joint rolled from a page from the Bible, leans back after inhaling heavily and says "Holy".
Can we judge all by what individuals do?
Books are just paper, ink and bindings. There isn't anything special about one book or another, they are all made from the same stuff. Printing presses aren't made in heaven.
Is the lawyer an extremist in your opinion?
No, he is an athiest who done something very stupid. In view of everything that was going on at the time, why would he do that? Add fuel to the fire?
The point I was trying to make to those who want to blame everything on religion is that athiest do wrong too. Religion is not the problem. The problem is people.
Atheists, Muslims and Christians smoking dope? I'm sure they do...don't know about the papers part, the guys in high school used to get tampon wrappers from some of the girls if they didn't have papers.
Sounds like a pretty stupid way to get a point across if ya ask me. But in answer to the ? regarding judging all by one persons actions? No, that would be equally stupid. I believe that one is responsible for only their own actions, if someone is influenced by that actions then it becomes that persons. You cannot judge all of one faith by one persons action. If that was the case, I would think of all Catholics as hyporcrites for gambeling, gossiping, and drinking Monday-Friday only to be forgiven on Sunday. But I don't- I just judge the one that I know does and that is my right.
I agree with you. You can't blame all for what one, or a group of people do.
How ever, how many times have we been told of what some professed christians or muslims have done.
Stewart, is an assistant organiser with a group called Brisbane Atheists.
I think it is hilarious. They just do not know who they are in life. The mystery of life can drive people to do strange things. They are love peace free but have not come to this conclusion in their life. The mystery of life is LOVE PEACE FREE. MAN choice and actions are automatically shown for the world to see and we have the freedom to choose otherwise in the course of our life on the earth. When you have the understanding of who everybody is to the core of their being which is love peace free then everything that happens on the earth is understood just like somebody that understands the principles of electricity. JUST BE IT. THANK YOU.
No, we can't judge all by what individuals do. Every person has to give encounter to their own actions.

It seems that Islam is on the rise in just about every nation around the globe.They are pushing their agenda onto any and every government that is TOLERANT, and using the freedom (and laws) in those countries to gain more and more control.The UK is a prime example, where political will is weak (at...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...
