I think I've found the solution to the read or burn problem with scripture.
My first reaction was the politically and religiously correct suggestion to read it, don't burn it. And I still think that it's a good idea to read it.
But while reading, apply the newest and most ancient principle of scriptural interpretation, which is this:
Any scripture that includes verses that breed violence, hatred or disdain is illegitimate.
So if you find in the scripture that you're reading verses that breed violence, hatred, or disdain, reject that scripture as illegitimate.
Of course, what you do with illegitimate scripture is your own damned business. But burning seems like a reasonable option.
