Seems like a waste of time and money to me. Why give the Bible makers more money? Kinda funny though. Like the Christians always burning books they don't like. The author and publisher get the money whether you read it, burn it, or whatever.

I have a few versions of the bible. I wouldn't burn it. It's a great book to read, as long as you don't read it as non-fiction. I think Mr. Price would agree with me. Eye-wink

Also good for showing Christians where exactly the cruel/ridiculous passages are.

This action defies the notion that there are sacred, untouchable, above-judgement things. And the idea that we ought to respect not only people's right to have beliefs, but also their beliefs and sacred objetcs as well, which is a form of coercion.

Belief is the idiot's Wisdom.
