No the Qur'an shouldn't be banned. It's a beautiful work of poetry
"Believers, do not make friends with any but your own people...They desire nothing but your ruin....You believe in the entire Book...When they meet you they say: 'We, too, are believers.' But when alone, they bite their finger-tips with rage." (Surah 3:118, 119)
"If you should die or be slain in the cause of God, His forgiveness and His mercy would surely be better than all the riches..." (Surah 3:156-)
"Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends." (Surah 5:51)
"Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God's religion shall reign supreme." (Surah 8:36-)
"Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them." (Surah 9:121-)
as are all the religious texts throughout history. Just because sme crazy assholes choose to rape the words into a call for violence HARDLY means the text is evil or hateful.
Rape the words? Or call out the words as they are?
Oh I'm sorry, it's all up to the reader's interpretation.
