Licking the Mailed Fist

Apparently, burning the Koran is worse than burning the Bible, because the Koran is a transcription of "God's" word, whereas the Bible is "written by men."

Watch the minute-and-a-half video where this is explained by the reasonable moral relativists at NBC News.

Notice how the talking head describes Pastor Terry Jones and the Afghani Muslims-in-question in equal terms -- as extremists -- as if there's no discernible moral difference between burning the Koran and murdering human beings.

It's also simplistic and misleading in suggesting that the Bible was "written by men." Christians believe that the Bible is God's holy Word, written down by men under His direct influence. So in both cases, the relevant parties accept that their scriptures contain messages to them that originated with God. Why introduce that Muslims believe the Koran is Allah's literal word, if not as an exercise in excuse-making for murder?
