Two men disguised The Bible as the Quran and read it to people in the street ' and the results are fascinating

Published by Business Insider on Wed, 09 Dec 2015

They then read out passages to members of the public, and the results were eye-opening.The video has already gone viral with over five million views and more than56,000 likes.They began by reading violent verses from the book of Leviticus and Timothy, such as "if two men sleep with each other they will both have to be killed," taken fromLeviticus 20:13.The people who had passages read to them reacted with shock, branding the passages "ridiculous" and "unbelievable," before comparing it to what they called a "less harsh" bible. One woman even called on Muslims to "adapt" to today's world."Hearing this, I would think the Quran is more aggressive," said one person.But the biggest surprises came when the YouTubers revealed where they were getting the quotes from, perhaps showing that people not only know very little about the Islam, but also about Christianity."It's all just prejudice really. I always try not to be prejudiced myself but apparently I already am," said one man, while another stressed the importance of "thinking rationally when it comes to these things."You can watch the full video below:Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: This 3-minute animation will change your perception of time
