    Re: Marilyn Manson burns the Bible

    I didn't mean to imply that it's right to burn the bible, it's obviously offensive to some people as is the burning of the flag.

    Perhaps I should state that I also think that the banning of burning the flag is taking it a bit far in a democratic society. Even though I believe the act is stupid and those who burn it really have no point too it (same as the bible).

    The point was that I don't think it's right to ban doing something because it's offensive to only some people. We are apart of a democratic society and therefore it's a persons right to express their opinions provided it's not physically harming some one.

    and of course there are other ways to protest, there always is, It's just that some ways are more effective than others and the way that Manson did it, was clearly effective, though maybe he lacked the knowledge to understand that people can believe what they what. Then again, as I've stated the burning of the bible could have meant something else.

    Ethically speaking, they should have a right to do so, but as you pointed out are they ethically alowed to when it offends some one?

    Now I can agree with you on that. But even the freedom of speech in America has its limits.....and so should everything

    Re: Marilyn Manson burns the Bible

    Did you say a muslim? well here's one... Well to all of us.. muslims...the strong follower or just the normal ones... they hold dear the Quran... eventhough it is just a rewrite... it contains what been said by the god. We hold Quran so dear that when we place it.. it must be somewhere high and there must not be anything else on it.. even a paper... if we dropped it... we say "Astarfirrulah" or it is somewhat near to oh my god... or something.. im not sure of the meaning and then we some sort of hug it...

    Well like Divine said... if a lunatic did that.. we can't do anything about that.. he dont have a mind that is ... well.. sane... If you value your religion and well i see that flags are in this too.. and your country,... im sure you wont burn the book or let another do that... ^^

    We really treasure the Quran and we treat it with respect... theres even ettics in reading the Quran.. i don't know about the bible though..

    Reality check!

    To Hindus, COWS are sacred. How do you suppose they feel about Barbeques, McDonalds and tv commercials for Outback Steakhouse?

    There is something called seperation of church and state. There's also a bill of rights which guarantees us BOTH freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Those are very much CORE American values, moreso than ANY "under God" in the pledge of allegience.

    Burning a flag or bible hurts NO ONE. It is a victimless crime. We all have better things to worry about than restricting our rights further and endangering the status of our constitution than to create laws protecting oversensitive people in one religion from their critics.

    Re: Marilyn Manson burns the Bible

    Because I'm busy smoking those trees! Heh heh heh......What's funny is that when someone burns something that supposedly contains the "word of god", nothing happens except for the immediate area being stunk up by smoke. No lightning bolts, no locusts, no threats of damnation by a disembodied voice...........get my point? Paper is paper, and tree is weed. If I have no papers for joints, I reach for a lil bit o' scripture. Don't worry, religious friends, I use a pipe anyways......Joints are good for traveling, but I'm a bowl smoker at home.
    Marilyn Manson amuses me, but I don't fall for the antics of rock stars........I'm more of a.........guy who believes the true test of a rock star lies within the music.........Marilyn tries too hard.......maybe he's had to look for something other than cutting himself with broken beer bottles to shock ppl............maybe he should go back to that.

    A question for everyone: Would you go cow tipping in India?

    Re: Marilyn Manson burns the Bible

    Burning the bible isn't bad. Maybe to those who read it and follow it. But in general, it's just burning another book.

    Even I've done it. Me and my friend were walkng from school, and some guy was passing out mni-bibles. So I took one, took my friends lghter, light it on fire and said "Hail Satan!" (This was when I was claiming to be a Satanist, I still am, but I have a much deeper thought process and label myself something else. i also did it just t piss him off and others. It worked, lol)

    Some girl yells "You Have NO right burning the bible!!!"
    Me: "Yes I do, he's spreading his religion, I'm spreading mine, through fire."

    But by people claiming this shows me how society has been built. Honestly sitting in jail for burning a silly book. Then I must be sent to jail for quite some time. Ridiculous.

    "And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted — nevermore!"
