The Bible is full of horrific verses — as is the Qur’an. Conservative Christians often argue that the Qur’an is full of barbarism and misogyny, but they often ignore the teachings of their own religion. Dutch pranksters at Dit Is Normaal ran an experiment — The Holy Qur’an experiment. They bought a Bible and changed the cover to say that it is the Qur’an. Then they asked people to read passages and give their thoughts.
It went exactly as you’d expect:
It’s almost as if these people hadn’t read their Bibles… but that’s impossible, right?
These types of experiments should be done more often to help wake people up — especially in relation to media bias.
