Come you righteous to the barricades

Holy book torn up! Surely there must be pandemonium. Surely we must get hundreds of hacks wandering around. Surely the President must give his view? Surely the Guardian and the BBC must pontrificate about the horror. The Huffington Post must puff?



Is that the sound of silence?

Of course silly me, it is just Muslims tearing up Bibles, move along nothing to see here.
Muslim students attending a Catholic primary school in Malawi tore up New Testaments that were being distributed by the Gideons International organization, which promotes the distribution of Bibles.
“Although the school’s director had made it absolutely clear that no New Testaments were to be given to the Muslim pupils and that in no way was any student obliged to take a copy of the book, there was a subsequent uproar on the part of some Muslim youths, who tore up the New Testaments, threw them, howling at their teachers, and then threw the torn-up pages out onto the streets,”
Please note that these were Primary School pupils.

I went to a white (British) working class/middle class school, no muslims in sight.
When the gideons turned up, we pretty much did the same thing. Only difference was that the teachers were not catholic and therefore didn't take offence. It happened every year.
