So let me get this straight….professors can mock the Bible during lectures, but someone flushes a Quran and everyone loses their dang mind!? This is what’s wrong with America. Liberals are so far up the butt of everyone but Christians.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying everything should be bent to benefit Christianity. However, if a bible was flushed, you would not see an investigation about it….
Two Qurans were reportedly flushed at the University of Texas, in a man’s restroom.
Daily Wire reports:
UT-Dallas Police Chief Larry Zacharias told the Texas Tribune that police are reviewing security video footage; he added that police have narrowed the time frame of the incident to a 30-minute window. Zacharias told KTVT, “It’s not something we want to blast out on campus because we don’t want people to go, ‘Oh, you’re a suspect in the Koran thing.’ We originally suspected these Korans may have come out of the Reflection Room, which is on the first floor of the Student Union. We’ve watched video in this timeframe and only two people went into that Reflection Room — both went in empty-handed and both came out empty-handed.”
Zacharias opined that the incident was not reflective of any anti-Muslim hate on campus, asserting, “There’s not much divisiveness on this campus at all … We constantly ask all of our students, from all backgrounds, do they feel safe on campus? And [the answer] is always yes.”
Strangely, no one has claimed the Korans as their stolen property, so no complaint has been filed. Zacharias told TheBlaze that the investigation will continue anyway because the act was offensive. He said, “First, it would not matter if this were a Quran, a Bible, or a Tora, the act of disposing a religious book or symbol in a toilet is considered an offensive act by our University community. There is an expectation of our community to investigate the incident, even though we have not identified, at this time, a possible owner that would serve as a criminal complainant.”
So what exactly will happen if they do find the person who flushed them? I don’t think you can really send someone to jail for flushing a book. It’s not like we suddenly portal-ed into the world of Fahrenheit 451, where books are completely outlawed. Get a grip! And is flushing a book really a hate crime? I mean, really? What about all the liberals burning American flags? Now that’s a hate crime.
