Lets lobby for a new law... Stickers in bibles
It's just a theory right? Shouldn't they have stickers to dsiclaim this so people reading them can make an informed judgement?

1. Well, the Bible is not "just" a theory
And the book has been abused badly by any number of self-serving hypocrites, but I think a useful sticker for Bibles would be "Important if true."

13. You're right, it's a myth!
like Sasquatch or the Yeti!

2. Warning: Contains violence and sexually explicit content
the latter is on display, so to speak, in Song of Solomon: "Thy belly is like an heap of wheat..."

11. Song Of Solomon Is Pretty Erotic
Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins,
which feed among the lilies.

How much better is thy love than wine!
and the smell of thine ointments than all spices!


Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb:
honey and milk are under thy tongue;
and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.

What the HELL is that supposed to mean? :)

I'm not sure exactly what he was referring to by "the smell of thine ointments" either :)

14. Lebanon Was Supposedly Very Beautiful
not being a biblical scholar, though, I am not sure.

3. I agree

How about, "This book should Never be read Literally."

Or we should just ban the "King James Bible," we shouldn't have a English King telling AMERICANS about Jesus. :silly:

7. Changing Bible
I like that idea. It should be an evolving Bible...just like the Constitution.

6. ONLY if they are used in the PUBLIC schools
We don't want to be like the Bushies and start imposing judgements on every piece of literature, movie, cartoon, etc. People can think for themselves.

10. I don't know
for some people, that's the only way they learn.

"See, how do you like it"

Note: My Taxes helped pay for those Stupid "Evolution is just a Theory" stickers, so this hits very close to home. :mad:
