Aussie Athiest Smokes Bible And Koran: Guess Which Religion Has To Call For Restraint

Someone was a busy beaver over the weekend

A BRISBANE-based lawyer and atheist who videoed himself smoking what appeared to be joints made with pages from the Bible and the Koran expects to lose his job at a Queensland university.

In the video, posted on YouTube, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) staffer Alex Stewart compares cigarettes made with pages from the two holy texts.

Interestingly, the video has already been yanked. It often takes a large, concerted effort to get Islamist propaganda yanked from YouTube, but, I guess they didn’t want to risk being put in the cross-hairs of the jihadis.

Anyhow, the QUT had a hissy fit, and Stewart is now on a leave of absence, and expects to be terminated. The good news for him is that he apparently will not face any actions due to the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act, since “blasphemy” has been removed from the criminal code.

He does have a small point

“Who cares? It’s your beliefs that matter. Quite frankly, if you are going to get upset about a book, you’re taking life way too seriously.”

Somewhat correct, as it is your beliefs that matter the most. Funny that has to come from an atheist. Obviously, though, the trappings have meaning to people. Of course, the Christian leaders who were asked about this either did not reply, or said it was stupid, and let’s move on. The other side was a bit different

However the president of the Islamic Association of Australia, Sheik Muhammad Wahid, said while Mr Stewart’s motives were deeply hurtful to Muslims, his future was for the university to decide.

He urged Muslims to turn the other cheek.

“I urge my fellow Muslims to abide by the laws of this country and not take any action which breaks the law,” he said.

Interesting that the religion of peace has to be reminded to be peaceful. And, to wrap up, Stewart may have reason to be worried for his life after this comment

He gave the Bible a seven out of 10 for its burning qualities, and said it was better than the Koran which left him feeling sick.

    Most “Christians” no longer believe that the Bible is the Word of God and should be interpreted literally. The Bible says that people who commit adultery should be stoned, but Christians just laugh that one off, muslims do not.

    Speak for yourself Ryan. This is just another case of you not knowing what you are talking about.

    The Bible says that people who commit adultery should be stoned, but Christians just laugh that one off, muslims do not.

    Thank you for demonstrating your ignorance of the Bible. While the OT does say that stoning for adultery is allowed, the New Testament says that adherence to those laws only illustrate the need for grace through Christ.

    The New Testament does not call for stoning of anyone and in fact, supplants the law of the OT.

    Your post is a perfect example of the Biblical tenant that those who speak on holy matters without understanding and spiritual guidance only show themselves to be fools.

  3. I had to ask myself the question, has that preacher read the Quran before he decided to burn it, or is his information based on what he has heard? I looked at the first two books of the Quran and found a lot of parallels to the Bible. I posted what I had found. http://biblecompare.wordpress.com/

    Most people can sense an idiot when they see one, and this Aussie is one.
    And I’d bet the farm that ALL GOOD Christians DO in fact believe that the bible is the Word of God. Besides, what the heck does that have to do with an idiot in Australia acting like a goofball, or for that matter, an idiot in America acting like a nutcase? The argument is lame.

    Thank you, ‘lil LYING BASTARD johnnie ryan, for proving what we already knew: that you are NOT a practicing Christian of any kind.

    What does a completely baseless and wholly inaccurate statement about Christian’s beliefs have to do with the story of an atheist smoking weed with something he doesn’t normally smoke weed with?

    However, I give him a 7 out of 10 for guts and originality.

    More than I can say for actual Christians here in the US.

    Actually, Lil Johnny is partly right. Many of the LEADERS of the Christian faith no longer believe that the Bible is GOD-inspired, nor that Jesus is one part of the Holy Trinity. Sad but true.

    A lot of the new mega-churches only teach about being good and feeling good. They rarely teach on sin, redemption and resurrection.

    Um, the Bible states that Moses was almost a thousand years old…so no, it is a work of fiction, not the word of God.

    Ah yes,…. the ever popular “something happened outside of the realm of my experience, so it cannot be true” attempt at disproving the Bible.

    Tell me Suzy, did you ever see Abraham Lincoln? I guess because you didn’t, he must not have existed and all the books about him were lies.

    Try thinking beyond your fingertips.

    BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA

    OMG. That’s funny stuff. You must be a comedian. Dude, come on! Tell us another one.

    Oh, I know one…. Do you know the joke about how the US Constitution is like the USSR Constitution because, after being translated, it has some of the same words. And, amazingly enough, some of them even line up two or three together…. in parallel comparison.

    OH, have you heard the one where the first few lines of the Gettysburg Address is comparably when lined up in a parallel fashion on the dinner table to the lines uttered by Clive Cussler’s first book?!?!
