I kno exactly how u feel... wat these ppl r doing is very wrong... i am not christian but whenever i see a religion being insulted whether it is hinduism or any other religion i get very upset... ppl shld learn to respect other cultures as they respect their own... whether they r monotheist or not this is something that shld be instilled in every child at a young age. even i would get upset at such behaviour and i would tell them off if not rudely then atleast politely i would try to get my point accross. when u did not tell them off because it would be against ur religion i really respect that as it shows how well cultured u r... but plzz next time if u see that do try to correct them... becuz obviously someone needs to tell those idiots! also i believe this is the right place to post such a thing...

Simi i am sorry that some poeple did that. i am not christian but my mom always taught me that u should respect other's religions. i know it won't help much but some people were also giving out bibles in front of my school so and i saw some people throwing them out so i took some home and i put it in a high place with the Quran so it doesn't fall to the floor and get ripped or anything. i know it can't help much but i want u to know that i am really sorry ppl do that because i know if someone did that to my book the Quran i wud be really hurt so i cant see it happening to someone else's.

Hi ! ..u said 'Kids' why..Bible, even give them any books which they are not interested in..they will play with it.... and it is wrong to give kids Religious books... Teaching kids abt Religion is the job of Parents and guardian. Other outsider ppl shud not give my kids any religious books of any religion, without letting me know abt that.
if it is my book then i will get angry, but if they purchased it from any shop, i may scold them..that playing with any book is bad, and destroying books is also bad thing to do. better donate it to library or at least sell it to 'junkdealer'.
and if u wanted to stress on "religious".. then if someone burns religious books (if it is not some unique antique book).. i will not feel any anger towards him, though his image in my view will get a little damaged..
i am hindu, i like "Gita".. if someone purchase it, read it, didn;t like it, and burn it.. i have no problem with that. There is no harm to me, and there is nothing against "thoughts of Gita' .. But if someone misinterprets 'Gita' or does the wrong Translation..then i will feel hurt..and will try to mend that.
or if someone does something just for insulting purpose, then i mind it.
and abt me. i not only respect Bible,Gita,Kuran.. i respect other Autobiographies, Mathematics books, and poetry books etc . But i take special caution with Bible and Kuran, bcoz some other ppl are touchy abt those.
