Once again, Merry Christmas.

Here’s a story out of Colorado Springs, where an Evangelical Christian group put copies of the New Testament in the Sunday paper there: http://www.denverpost.com/Stories/0,1413,36~53~2616202,00.html

‘”Rabbi Anat Moskowitz canceled her subscription to the Gazette because she didn’t approve of the way the text was delivered.
“All Jews treat holy books with reverence and respect,” Moskowitz said. “I don’t like the fact that most people drive over their newspaper in the morning. We find that disrespectful.”
Moskowitz and other worshipers from Temple Shalom in Colorado Springs didn’t protest the giveaway per se, but have decided to give copies they received to local churches that want them.”‘

Unfortunately the Rabbi is committing an error, it used to be called grammatalotry, which is when the paper or the text is worshipped, instead of God (or YHWH in the Rabbi’s case). Either the text is sacred and should be protected to the point that it is kept in a safe or not read, or it should be spread through the land so all can read and learn.
