On the Qur'an 'A lot of the Qur'an is, frankly, cantankerous, vitriolic, man-hating stuff.'
One has to wonder if Roger Scruton has ever read the Koran, and whether the reason for his failure is to do so is anything to do with his vitriolic hatred of Muslims from the standpoint of his chauvinism as a Christian Englishmen.
http://www.newstatesman.com/drink/2009/07/quran-cocktail-reading suggests that he is quite unaware of the Koran's ambivalent attitude towards wine. He also seems to be suggesting that he would like to blaspheme against the God of the Koran by spilling his wine all over it.
Clearly, Scruton is yet another educated man incapable of picking up the book and reading it with an open mind.
If so, then he clearly does deserve the persecution he has received at the hands of the Reds and the Commie P:inkos who are now everywhere.
Scruton should realise that Christianity is clearly a failing and defective faith, and the proof is in the pudding that we are all eating now.
Perhaps the questions I asked of one his detractors, Theo Hobson, who does not apparently even recognise Scruton as a fellow Christian
