Inspired word of God?

The Rascal read something the other day to the effect that the Koran shows Islam to be a dangerous and violent religion, especially as compared to Christianity as based on the Bible.

But the piece had nothing to say about these words from God in the Old Testament:

"If your brother, the son of your father or of your mother, or your son or daughter, or the spouse whom you embrace, or your most intimate friend, tries to
secretly seduce you, saying, 'Let us go and serve other gods' unknown to you or
your ancestors before you, gods of the peoples surrounding you, whether near you
or far away, anywhere throughout the world, you must not consent, you must not
listen to him; you must show him no pity, you must not spare him or conceal his
guilt. No, you must kill him, your hand must strike the first blow in putting
him to death and the hands of the rest of the people following. You must stone
him to death, since he has tried to divert you from Yahweh your God."
(Deuteronomy 13:7–11)

How come the TV preachers never mention that passage from The Good Book?
