“(CNN) — Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.
Afghan workers enter a walkway on March 3, 2009, at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan.
The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.
Such religious outreach can endanger American troops and civilians in the devoutly Muslim nation, Wright said.
“The decision was made that it was a ‘force protection’ measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims,” Wright told CNN on Tuesday.”
What a fucking Obamanation. Shame on the US Army for caving to these sub-human muslim barbarians. I say let’s burn a boatload of Korans that have been translated into English in response. Surely – surely – that would be fair. Reciprocity and all that goody good bullshit.
Pardon me while I go out and break things and fuck shit up.

Chill, bro. It can’t be the US military handing out Bibles. That comes after. After the military has stabilised stuff.

Chill, are you nuts! Thise people ordering the book burning will have their special place when Our Lord Returns. Reading this story make me sick to my stomach.

Am I nuts? I don’t think I am…
Still, I’m an editor at this frickin’ zoo, so who knows?
