Neither. I don't burn books.<quoted text>
Hold the Koran in one hand, and the New Testament in the other hand.
How about you hand the book that teaches tolerance, love, peace, humility, equality, forgiveness, and everything else that makes life better, to a stranger,... and burn the one that teaches intolerance, women in sexual slavery, and killing anyone and everyone who has a different belief.
Which one do you burn?
The New Testament or the Koran?
But then again, I don't need any book of ancient fairy tales, to convince me of the existence or the nature of the Divine.
The Divine is made manifest in every particle of the universe - why would it need a book to make itself understood? Only men who don't listen have that problem. Free will and all like that...
As for the separation of Church and State, I'm all for it. Big fan. One's religion and one's service to one's country should function independently, as one has nothing to do with the other. Religion is personal, and public service is, well, public.
Since we don't all 'worship' the Divine in the same way,(and some of us don't worship at all) it is against the Constitution to legislate the tenets of one religion over another, and passing any religious test for eligibility to public office is EXPLICITLY forbidden.
"Religion as Government" is in the Koran, I think....and there was that quote about 'rendering unto Caesar...' now who said that again?
It never ceases to amaze me how often Christians tout the Bible, but refuse to heed it. You folks need a new shtick.
