Quote for the day

"Well, people only pretend to read the Bible. Their eyes glaze over and they remember a couple of passages that they ignore when they feel like ignoring it, like 'turn the other cheek', and then when they don't like somebody, they go flipping through this massive book full of ancient desert prejudices looking for something to justify it. Just like they justified slavery using the Bible, because there are passages of the Bible that justify slavery, including passages that justify selling your daughters into sex slavery -- right there, that's Biblical, those are Biblical family values -- and so we have this selective sort of reading problem with the Bible. If we're going to enforce it all, stone the gay people, but, you know, stone the adulterers first, starting with Newt Gingrich, and Rudy Giuliani, and John McCain -- and then by the time it's my turn, they'll be out of rocks."

Heh,heh,heh ..... you sure know how to pick em ... heh? :) Yep, that's a good un....

I have alway's told folk's...that you can justify pissing on an Armadillo if you want with this book. I actually love reading the bible ... and I'm not even a christian,nor ever been a christian. It's all that and more! Hell no most people dont read it, they "use" it. When I was doing time (being reformed) I and other guy's alway's went to church on sunday. Why? Because the on state nurses of the institution were going to be there...and that is the closest we get to seeing or smelling a woman walk by ... beside's a magazine or a tele in there,certainly not for the sermon. :)
