Everyone knows my views on Islam -- these idiots are following a prophet of Satan and are trying to establish a new caliphate through the use of exported terror and manipulating a willing Western media.
But some injustices just call out for anger. Righteous anger.
Gay Artist Burns Rare $60,000.00 Koran
Charles Merrill, the artist who recently edited the Holy Bible with a black marker and pair of scissors, has lately burned a rare Islamic Holy Book, The Koran, valued at $60,000.00, in an undisclosed Chicago location. "The purpose of editing and burning Abrahamic Holy Books is to eliminate homophobic hate," Merrill stated. "Both ancient books are terrorist manuals."
A bit about the book:
He continues, "I inherited the rare Islamic book from my late wife, Evangeline Johnson Merrill. As the daughter of the founder of the international pharmaceutical giant, Johnson and Johnson, Inc., doors of kings and queens opened to her around the world. Evangeline was given the rare manuscript by the late King of Jordan when she was on a mission for the United Nations in the 1950's."
So that book is now your personal play-toy -- a 'thing' to be used to prop up a flagging career as a self-centered wanna-be 'artiste' who's only popularity comes from his wife's family and his money.
Any book of that value was never meant to be destroyed by anyone. Its gift was the conveyance of a trust that the book would be treasured and preserved, not destroyed on an 'artists' whim.
As I have said here before, I have had the occasion to know a number of Islamic Sufi's and as a whole, these were some of the most gracious, wonderful, and selfless people you could ever meet. My complaint is not against Islam as a spiritual practice but against the corrupt Mullahs and Saudi Arabian Wahabbists who are fomenting terror, fear and ignorance among their people to sustain their power.
I am a firm believer in sovereign states rights so when we find people from Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iran coming into Iraq to try to topple the nascent democratic government (everyone remember the blue fingers), I get sorely pissed. When they try to bring it into Britain, Spain and the USA, I get livid.
Oh yes, here is a photo of the narcissistic little twat lounging at the Plaza San Marco (I have been there several times - gorgeous way to spend an afternoon):
And here is a photo of one of his artworks:
Mr. Merrill is not challenging, he is chalanged...
And as for his quote about the Bible and the Koran: "Both ancient books are terrorist manuals.
They both were at the time they were written. Life was harsh back then and the survival of your tribe was paramount to your existence.
But you know something? The Christians started to outgrow the terror aspect after about 600 years. The other guys have yet to to this day. The sects of Islam that genuinely practice peace and submission are under suppression by the majority.
