Dude, you have no Qur’an

I read this story and smiled: Texas Skateboarder Stops Christian Extremist From Burning The Qur’an

In Amarillo, Texas, David Grisham, director of Repent Amarillo, “which aims to deter promiscuity, homosexuality and non-Christian worship practices through confrontation and prayer,” planned to burn the Islamic holy text at a public gathering. But before he could set the book ablaze, a 23 year-old skateboarder named Jacob Isom swooped in and grabbed it:

this is activism at its best. In the video interview you hear that people stood with their hands doused with kerosene over the Qur’an to prevent nutball Christian David Grisham from burning the books. Grisham heads Repent Amarillo, I would stand against this man and his paramilitary group of fundie nutballs every time the appear in public.
