It appals you? A Christian's duty is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. He commanded his apostles to go forth and preach to all nations. What your saying is anti-biblical.I think BOTH parties are in the wrong. Christian missionaries were disrespectful to send this man a NT knowing his beliefs, and he was disrespectful to address it this way. I think he absolutely could have called the missionaries out on this behaviour, but without ripping up a holy book of another faith. However, because it was provoked, I don't see this reaction as being the same as the burning of the Qu'ran, which was not provoked and was in itself an inflammatory action.
I don't believe the Bible is responsible for the suffering of Jews. It is the actions of human beings using the Bible as an excuse/reason that did that - and did that for many other groups of people, including Jews, and many groups that are Christians today and read the Bible.
It appals me that Christian groups today still actively try to convert people of other faiths - have we learned nothing? That is just wrong. And given the recent history of the Jewish people, it should be obvious that that would be an unwelcome and offensive act. I have no time for Christians like that.
I also don't see anything wrong with this as a discussion topic.
I wouldn't even tear up a Watchtower if it was given to me for show the way this guy did. He was obviously looking to start trouble. Maybe the missionary group was too but his reaction is over the top. Destroying the Holy Book is a serious offense, in ANY religion!
