I’ve burnt one before and I’ve also torn the pages out completely when I was about 16, after getting frustrated one night when I got to thinking about the kind of power and control it has over people. How you see your loved ones has being duped and all the destruction it has caused for mankind and keeping people living in fear with its disgusting teachings of eternal damnation. A gross device for manipulation.
No. It comes in handy when I want to share and compare the leaders of ISIS to Moses & Co. For example, my mom was talking about how horrible ISIS was, and how they killed other tribes, plundered, and captured women and girls to keep for themselves. So I pulled out the bible and read Numbers 31 to my mom and she was shocked and asked me to stop reading.
After moving here in the Bible Belt, I was shocked at the blind acceptance of the Bible as history and as science. This was totally new to me - I had never seen it before. At first I thought I was being mocked, then I thought I was being insulted, then I finally realized they were fooking serious! Still makes my jaw drop when I hear it. It is so ingrained that recently I had an avowed atheist trying to convince me the Bible is accurate history.
No, I wouldn't burn anybody's holy book, it's wrong. I used to belong to a church, and one of the members told me to burn my stepdaughter's copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I told him no, and then told the pastor about it and all he did was tell the member that it was the pastor's responsibility to say what is acceptable and what isn't. I don't burn books, any books no matter what my personal opinion of that book is,
No I have never burned one, But, having a " push religion down my throat mother " on starting a new career, 200 miles from home, away from my pushy mother, I found a bible in my luggage, I thought, will I never escape from this coercion ? So I finally broke the ties of my mothers devotion to a non existent god by throwing the bible into the rubbish bin.
