From the Wishful Thinking Department comes this one from the Dutch Disease blog (thanks to Cid Martel):
Holland’s number one entertainment store, Free Record Shop, has started selling the Qu’ran and the Bible in one package along with a brochure written by an imam and a protestant.
“There’s a lot going on in the world today,” commercial director Juan da Silva says. “Maybe if we showed some more interesr in one another we would understand each other better.”
To help build a bridge between the Qu’ran and the Bible, Da Silva asked imam Abdulwahid van Bommel and reverend Adri van Buuren to write a brochure about Christianity and Islam. According to both clergymen, Christians and Muslims share the same God.
Van Buuren calls the Qu’ran ‘some kind of third Testament’ and calls on Christians and Muslims to pray together and combine forces. “In service of world peace.”
Some kind of third Testament, eh, Van Buuren? I guess Van B. hasn’t seen the passage where the Qur’an calls down the curse of Allah on those who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Qur’an 9:30).
