Don’t take the Bible too seriously
So, how many days will it take for CNN to issue an apology for saying that you shouldn’t take the Bible too seriously? It’s not the kind of thing you hear very often on television, and I imagine it probably sent a few religious conservatives into a hissy-fit. Let’s not forget a significant percentage of Americans are convinced that every single word of the Bible is holy, undeniable truth. It doesn’t matter to them it’s a total crock of shit. So long as they continue to believe, whatever chosen hateful passages they’ve latched on to will continue to play an important role in the way the country is formed.
Let’s not forget that the most militarily advanced nation in the world also happens to be one of the most religious. That’s fucking reassuring, isn’t it?
