A Ohio man has created a huge controversy by shredding a Quran in public. Police at Wright State say man was within his First Amendment rights.

John Williams said he was trying to get his point across. He calls it confrontational evangelism, stating; “The point of ripping up pages of the Quran was that we were demonstrating what god thinks about the Quran,” Williams said. “We do this to get attention. We do this to lift of the name of Jesus Christ, so people will know that our God’s way is absolute.”

Williams made a very confrontational statement in front of a large crowd of Muslims.

From WLWT:

The confrontation at Wright State turned physical.

Karen Dabdoub, executive director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Cincinnati Chapter, said she can understand why it was hurtful. For Muslims, the Quran is the word of God.

While some call what Williams did hateful, he said he and other street preachers don't plan on stopping.

Williams said they've since made stops at the University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University.

"We're Bible believers and we believe what the Bible said that there's only one way to heaven so if you don't repent and believe the gospel, hell fire awaits you," said Williams.

No doubt we are in a holy war, and if history as thought us anything, it’s that good will eventually triumph over evil, and while no doubt Williams is a patriot, creating civil unrest and putting innocent people in harm's way, to simply make a point, is actually playing into the hands of your enemy, however more importantly it misrepresents Christ’s true message to his disciples.

The Facebook post that uploaded the video has stated we need 100 Million more like John Williams.
