If you’re not familiar with the Bible, there are some rather gory passages within its pages.
If you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands, and if you reject my decrees and abhor my laws and fail to carry out all my commands and so violate my covenant, then I will do this to you: I will bring on you sudden terror, wasting diseases and fever that will destroy your sight and sap your strength…
I will send wild animals against you, and they will rob you of your children, destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted…
If in spite of this you still do not listen to me but continue to be hostile toward me, then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over. You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters.
So what happens when you take certain snippets from the holy text, read them aloud and tell people the words are from the Koran?
That’s what Dutch YouTube duo, Dit Is Normaal, wanted to know.
So they wrapped up a copy of the Bible in a Koran cover, read out a bunch of the most shocking passages, asked people what they thought and what happened?
Exactly what you’d expect, unfortunately.Just some of the responses included this:
If you’ve been raised with this book and these kinds of thoughts it’s going to influence the way you think
The world is changing and I think they should have to adapt to it.
Oh, and this:
How could anyone believe in this?! That’s unbelievable to me
Please note, if you think you’re not prejudiced…
… you probably are.
