Robert Spencer Promotes Notion That Jesus Would Burn Quran
Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs notes that Muslim-basher Robert Spencer (pictured) of “Jihad Watch” posted a link to an article about how Jesus would have supported burning the Quran. (The article is by Timothy Furnish who describes himself as a “recovering professor”. We all know how what a horrible profession that is, where you actually want to teach people things, and support edumication.) Furnish refers to parts of the Quran he deems non-Christian:
I think He might very well approve of burning at least THAT part of the Qur’an; I also doubt that Jesus would have any problem with consigning to the flames the ayahs in Islamic scriptures that mandate attacking non-Muslims (Surah 9:5ff), beheading them (Surah 47:3 and 8:12) and beating one’s wives (Surah 4:34)—just to name a few of the more egregious passages.
Johnson picks up on something quite interesting. Spencer’s original post title was “Furnish: Burn Baby Burn,” as evidenced by the readout of the link: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/09/furnish-burn-baby-burn.html. Spencer thought better of that, though, and changed it to “Furnish: The Unforgettable Fire.” But that shouldn’t be surprising coming from person who smears Islam as “the world’s most intolerant religion.” Who is it that’s the intolerant one here?Click here for reuse options!
