If you're bored on Halloween

If you haven't already solidified your Halloween plans, I found a little something that may interest you.

It's a Halloween book burning.

It's down in Canton, NC at the Amazing Grace Baptist Church, just a bit down the road from Pigeon Forge, TN, really.

But it's not just any book burning, no. It's a bible burning. To quote their news and events page...
Come celebrate Halloween by burning Satan's bibles like the NIV, RSV, NKJV, TLB, NASB, NEV, NRSV, ASV, NWT, Good News for Modern Man, The Evidence Bible, The Message Bible, The Green Bible, ect[sic]. These are perversions of God's Word the King James Bible.

We will also be burning Satan's music such as country, rap, rock, pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel, contempory[sic] Christian, jazz, soul, oldies but goldies[sic], etc.

We will also be burning Satan's popular books written by heretics like Billy Graham, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, John McArthur, James Dobson, Charles Swindoll, John Piper, Chuck Colson, Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart, Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham, Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn, Joyce Myers, Brian McLaren, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa, The Pope, Rob Bell, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning, William Young,etc

We will be serving Bar-b-Que Chicken, fried chicken, and all the sides.

So, they're burning all of Satan's works - any bible translation other than King James, plus books by popular pastors like Billy Graham and the Pope - and all of Satan's music - which is pretty much anything but classical music, as far as I can tell.

Satan is gonna be pissed.

Me, I love fried chicken, so I'll be there.

Sent a little e-mail to the good reverand...wonder if I'll get a response:

I read with interest the reports of the book burning your church is planning for Halloween. That sounds like a spectacular idea. Of particular interest to me was the part about any version of the Bible that says any other edition that's not the King James is a perversion. That jumped out at me, although the parts about the devil's music and the condemnation of popular movies and books was also riveting. Given that, I wanted your take on a couple of Bible verses that strike me as fairly noteworthy (I took them, naturally, from the King James Bible). Thanks for your insight!

Matthew 7: 3-5 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

John 8: 6-8 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Nice job, folks...don't know if we were the whole cause or just the last straw, but the church's website is officially down.

I'd god, but NC is a bit far away. But also I see no reason not to burn the KJB, either.
