Violent Bible Book Should be Banned
Thursday 1st May 2008
Lobby group Family First is calling for the Book of Isaiah, a collection of Old Testament prophecies linked to recent anti-government protests to be banned in New Zealand.
A passage from the eighth century BC text was cited as the inspiration for the ANZAC Ploughshares, the activist group responsible for a recent attack on the GCSB spybase in Waihopai.
A press release from ANZAC Ploughshares released after the incident contained a quotation from Isaiah:
‘They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift sword against nation; and there shall be no more training for war.’
‘This book is directly responsible for inciting terrorist attacks against the New Zealand government,’ said Bob McCoskrie, National Director for Family First NZ. ‘The Old Testament is available to teenagers and young children. There is an overwhelming link between this holy book and the recent surge in spybase related crime.’
A Dominican Priest is believed to have been involved in the attack. The group breached three security fences and used a sickle to deflate the kevlar hood covering one of the two satellite dishes.
McCoskrie blamed the easy availability of sacred scriptures like Isaiah on the statistical increase in crimes committed by Dominican Priests and directly criticised the Labour Government for their reluctance to prohibit the import and manufacture of divine tomes.
‘We reap what we sow,’ McCoskrie said.
