Westboro religious nuts may burn Qurans

Pastor Terry Jones may have ‘suspended’ plans to burn copies of the Quran at the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., on 9/11, but the religious nuts of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, says they will.

The Westboro group, a religious cult, is a hate group that masquerades as a religion. Its followers are known for confusing their hate-filled speech and behavior.

While claiming to be Christians they demonstrate in word and in deed that they are not followers of Jesus Christ, but rather servants of the devil. .

Although the church burned a Quran in Washington in 2008, it did not get much media attention. On its web site Friday, the church called Pastor Jones in Gainesville a “false prophet … bullied by sissy, intolerant rebels worldwide into cancelling plans to burn that blasphemous idol called the Koran.”

Westboro also declared that it “will burn the Koran and the doomed American flag at 12:00 p.m. on September 11, 2010 at Westboro Baptist Church.”

Islamic militants in Somalia ban bras

Islamic hate groups bans bras A hardline Islamist group in Somalia is publicly whipping women for wearing bras they say violate Islam by constituting a “deception”, it was claimed yesterday.

Gunmen from al Shabaab have been rounding up any women with a “firm bust” and whipping them, say residents in the capital Mogadishu.

One woman said: “They first introduced a hard fabric which stands stiffly on women’s chests. They are now saying breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat.”

The group has also banned movies, football, musical ringtones and dancing at weddings.

The group’s hardline interpretation of Islamic law has shocked many Somalis, who are traditionally moderate Muslims.

Pastor burning versions of the Bible he doesn’t agree with

Marc Grizzard Yet another case of religious insanity…

A church leader in North Carolina is burning versions of the Bible he doesn’t agree with.

Pastor Marc Grizzard of the Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton is building a bonfire on Halloween to destroy Bibles that aren’t the King James Version.

“What we’re doing is we’re burning books that are satanic. I believe the King James version is God’s preserve, inspired, in erect, infallible word of God.”

King James Only-ism is the aberrant belief that God isn’t clever enough to address people in anything other than ancient English.
