Watch people react to hearing violent Bible verses they think are from the Quran

The young folk over at Dit Is Normal (not a typo), a prankster show out of the Netherlands decided to prank people concerning the Christian Bible. In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris and the rising discussion of Islam as a religion inherently violent and prone to terrorism, these two men thought it would be interesting to buy a Bible, highlight some verses, and then replace the cover of that Bible with a cover of a Quran and then let people read those verses—and film their reactions.
If you’ve been raised with this book and these kinds of thoughts, it’s going to influence the way you think.
Good point? Problem is that it applies to most of the people ranting about this stuff these days. When the guys are Dit Is Normal reveal that these verses are from the Bible, everyone’s reactions are genuinely surprised—and frankly—positive. One young man’s reaction is a real statement of our ability to swallow our pride without feeling humiliated—after laughing and seeming to be genuinely taken by how tricked he was he says this:
But it’s all just prejudice really. I always try not be be prejudiced myself but apparently I already am.
this i think is a great learning article of self righteousness and how fallible it is.  we all at points n our lives some points last longer than others but we tend to adhere to something that turns out too many times to be erroneous some are quick to acknowledge some never will but you cannot hide from your sub conscious there is no delete button.

the sources we get our info from coming up are the the ones more detrimental as they shape over time who we are and what we believe there is where we need to understand and pass along hold on to your thoughts and beliefs only as long a there is not a better more informed answer  i learned that years ago and i only keep an opinion until a better one comes along.

it has served me well and allows me to keep an open mind.  i read something somewhere long ago that said "The wise man knows he knows nothing, the fool thinks he knows all."  i have never been afraid to say i don't know.  we should not look to assign blame but look for better understandings.
