How to host a book burning

I have a new ambition in life… I want to write a book and have it burnt by the Amazing Grace Baptist church. You do too. You may not know it yet, but you’d be in great company. And if you go along you get BBQ or fried chicken – because they’re not works of Satan.

This video has been doing the rounds. It’s a news report on the Amazing Grace Baptist book burning – their list includes books by Billy Graham (a heretic), Mark Driskol (sic) (probably a heretic), and any version of the Bible that is not a King James. Because it, and only it, is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant word of God. I’ve always wondered what research the KJV only mob do to come to the conclusion that it was produced by better translators than our modern translators. I think I’ll try to contact this pastor guy and ask him. He has a church of 15, so he’ll have time. After the book burning of course…

  1. How awful! It's stunts like this that make other countries think mine is a cracker-filled, ultraconservative land of polytheism-hating, book burning rednecks. Ugh. It seems very few people from other countries take into effect the political and religious turmoil America is constantly in, due to our melting pot of beliefs and religions. I, for one, am Buddhist, and there's over 1.5 other people who label themselves under that belief system. Yet no matter what your religion is, there's always extremists.

  2. Don't you know that God let the KJV down to Jesus on a golden string so he could give it to his disciples?

    Actually, I just think that version of extremism is just sad.

    You mean it's not?

    This article is slightly balanced by the post I put up yesterday that holds up "pluralism" as one of America's defining features. I think your country is very confused… though most countries are.
