Let's hope there's a bomb in it.

Okay, but the car in question is a Hyundai Accent, so I'm not sure who's actually getting the raw end of this deal.

If I threaten to singe some of the pages in the Koran can I get free oil changes and a tire rotation?

No, but you would get a new set of wiper blades. No installation I'm afraid.

One caller suggested painting sayings from various religious books - the Quran, the Talmud, the King James Bible - on the car.

"What you didn't say was what the car was going to look like when you gave it to him," the caller said.


Give him a green Accent with, painted on in white letters, the following phrase:

لا إله إلا الله ومحمد رسول الله


in various conspicuous locations.

If that "Pastor" was worth his salt at all (which we already know he's not), he would sell the car and use the money for charity.

Okay, I won't.

I love a good hustle. This guy gets an A for originality, though I always have high hustling standards for preachers. It's a part of their job description.

According to a longer article I read, the pastor is donating to a charaity for abused Muslim women.

Translation = I burned the Koran, so you don't have to.

Kind of like how we don't have to sacrifice animals to Jehova since the whole crucifiction thing.

People are funny. Ha ha ha ha haaaa....(puke).

I believe this is called "appeasement" . . .

Oh godammit. Ok then. I'm going to threaten to blow up a church. Now what do I get for not doing it?

As for the pastor, he's still a shiatbag. But at least he's taking one step on the long road to deserving the title "pastor".

This is a nice little comment you got yourself, here. Be a real shame if something happened to it, like a fire or burglary. Maybe youze should hire me to keep an eye on it for you, just to make sure it don't get hurt.

FTA: Muslims revere the book as the word of God and view its destruction as sacrilege.

Is that actual Muslim belief or is the journalist making that up? That the Koran is "God's Word?" If that is so and if they also believe God is perfect then how would it be possible for some parts to contradict other parts?

I don't believe that at all... remember, this IS the guy who said he convinced them to NOT build the Muslim community center in NYC... which was a total lie.

Muslims are involved so there is a high probability.....

Maybe "someone" could throw a pile of Korans into his shiny new car and burn them. That's what he wanted, right?

That's it, I'm burning the Koran next week unless someone can offer me an incentive not to.

Ashlea: I don't believe that at all... remember, this IS the guy who said he convinced them to NOT build the Muslim community center in NYC... which was a total lie.

I am sure if he doesn't follow through it will come to light. The funniest part of this is the car dealer's offer was "use of a car for a year" but rather than have to deal with asshole pastor any more, he is giving him the car.

This same dealer ( he is an ex NFL Player) also took a vow of celibacy until he became the #1 Hyundai dealer or something like that.
 
2010-10-15 01:48:09 PM
Yes! We finally have all three steps!

Step 1: Threaten to burn Qur'an
Step 2: ??? Don't
Step 3: Profit

Yay! I'm sooooo gonna be rich! You nerds wait!

"We are not trying to profit from this. We are not keeping the car for ourselves," Jones said by telephone from California

Obviously. What fundy preacher would be caught dead driving a low-class car like that?

Not necessarily. Given all the attention this got, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if someone called him pretending to be the hanan(?) in the hopes of getting him to cancel.

I'd say he's more likely to donate it than not. After all, he didn't have to say anything of the sort. If he didn't plan on donating it, then he wouldn't have said anything.

It is Muslim doctrine.

As for the contradiction, it's called naskh, or abrogation.

"None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: knowest thou not that God hath power over all things ?" Qur'an (2:106)

By fleecing someone he doesn't even know? Yeah, I guess so.

The big thing that I picked up on with all of this, was the level of importance to christains on saving the Quran. I mean people burn the Bible all the time and the only response from these same christains is a shoulder shrug. Doesn't this mean that the Quran is more important to them?
