A group of men diligently study the Bible while Jesus waves his hands frantically trying to get their attention.
Yesterday I poked the bear by posting a cartoon about the distinction between Jesus and the Bible. So I thought I'd fully arouse said bear.
There are the three issues for which I get the most reactions:
1. The Bible.
In that order.
Why are these such provocative issues for the religious?
I think I know why.
It's about power.
It's about control.
The Bible can be controlled: Don't let it into the hands of amateurs.
Women can be controlled: Don't let them abdicate their biblical role.
Sinners can be controlled: Don't allow them access!
When you touch any of these three holy relics... their Bible, their women, and their exclusivity... their wrath knows no bounds.
Am I right?
