This might get me branded as a flaming liberal by some, but unless a publication contains blatant smut, there is no excuse to burn books.
Even if translations such as the NIV or New Living Translations are deficient, that is still no excuse to burn them as many of these still possess the power of God unto salvation.
And even if Billy Graham and Rick Warren are deficient theologically, shouldn't we study their works to learn for ourselves where these thinks have gone astray rather than blindly accept the word of someone that destroys the evidence before we have the chance to judge for ourselves?
Unless one's faith is anchored in the Savior rather than the church, this outrage is almost enough to make one to want to leave Christianity.
