21. My mother used to torment my religious boyfriend by reading him
passages of the bible that talk about G*d revealing his "hinder parts" to Moses (i think). He's mooning Moses!! she'd screech.

Twisted, I know.

The Bible is great literature, and of course loaded with truly good stuff, but it wouldn't take a lot of leafing for you to find some gems.

Old Testament has more interesting stuff, but the evangelical types tend to pay more attention to the New one.

You can even find editions where J's words are all in red. Makes your J quoting fast and easy!
