Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    There are plenty of nasty passages in the Bible too.

    This is a very interesting article, from the Guardian:

    Muslims who preach hate are to be deported and subject to new restrictions, Charles Clarke announced in the Commons on Wednesday. So what would the home secretary have to say about stuff like this: "Blessed is he who takes your little children and smashes their heads against the rocks"? Or this: "O God, break the teeth in their mouths ... Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime; like the untimely birth that never sees the sun ... The righteous will bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked." No, this is not Islam, it is the Bible. And there is a lot more where that came from.
    No doubt some of the indoctrinated Bush crusaders are "bathing their feet in the blood of (who they deem to be) the wicked" at this very moment. However, Bush's crusaders don't need to smash children's heads against rocks, they have their guns, and are quite happy to use them, many times on innocent civilians.

    I'd say it shows that we read such passages selectively, both in the Quran and the Bible-and perhaps othe holy books too.
    I have not found any other mention of the 'head smashing' quote, apart from the Guardian article. I have, however, found the psalm which contains the tooth and fang breaking call. I would understand it as meaning 'remove the power from the wicked'. The snails thing is a bit more obscure, but I think it's all supposed to be symbolic. Probably the Quran is the same, I couldn't really say.

    And how about how the bible talks against "man laying with man" or some such thing and in the same breath talks about all sorts of dietary restrictions like not eating shellfish and some kinds of hooved creatures. I think all those bible-belt Americans who are stuffing their fat faces at their local "surf 'n turf" restaurant will be burning for eternity!

    Don't eat shellfish. They are an abomination (according to the Bible.) Also, don't wear cotton-polyester blend clothing - it is forbidden in the Bible as well.
