Baptist preacher urges Koran flushing

The Reverend Creighton Lovelace from the Danielstown Baptist Church in Forest City, NC is urging that the Koran be "flushed," according to a radio broadcast sermon and a sign outside the church.

"I cannot change my position just because it may offend someone else," Lovelace said.

Lovelace said he put the sign up in response to a Newsweek article that falsely accused U.S.soldiers of flushing the Quran down a toilet at the Guantamo Bay detention center. Newsweek later retracted that story, but not before the article sparked riots in some Muslim parts of world, killing at least 15 people.

"Where is the desecration of the Quran? Because from the viewpoint of Christ -- the Bible -- 66 books is his revealed word to mankind. Any other book trying to state they are God's revealed message to mankind would be false," Lovelace said.

He said he has a right and responsibility to expose what he calls false teachings to the world.

"Our position is that we stand on the Bible -- God's word -- and that any other book that teaches a way to God that is not scripture is false. It is wrong. It is not correct," Lovelace said.

As you can imagine, CAIR and other Muslim groups are NOT happy.

Regardless, Lovelace promises to keep the sign up through Friday.

1 No offence michael but that guy is the worst example of a bigoted moron who needs to pick up a history book The bible was made up by MEN!!!!!!!!! who we all know to be fallible in several places nicea amongst them. EVERY WORD WAS WRITTEN BY MEN. If i went up a mountain or spent 40 days in a desert by myself i may well come back claiming god or elvis had spoken to me. I would be branded a loony and stuck in a nut house. which is where that idiot belongs. note i am NOT accusing you of advocating that.

2 None taken, Nick. As a Christian, I'm embarrassed by preachers like this.

3 It bothers me a great deal that we see in some fundamentalist Christian groups the same kind of behavior we find in fundamentalist Muslim groups. I cannot imagine that God is pleased with any variety of intolerance, nor of people running around blowing each other to smiterines in God's name. They seem to remember everything ever written except "Love thy neighbor."

4 Marx and his kith-and-kin once called religion the opiate of the masses. These days, he can be proven wrong: for some groups, it has turned into crystal meth. My 2-cents, that's all.

5 I am an American Muslim and I just wanted to thank you all for your comments denouncing this action. Ignorance is what we all need to fight in this world. You all are clearly discussing issues like this pragmatically and this is greatly appreciated.
