There are many things wrong with the bible (which I refuse to capitalize). For starters it has caused more pain, death, stupidity, violence, and misunderstanding than any other book. And it continues to do  so every day. Here is one of the latest idiocies inspired by the bible. Republican Congressman from Texas (where else?) Jodney (that's a name?) Arrington says that unemployed people shouldn't be fed. His reason for feeling this, like many morons, is a biblical verse. In this case Thessalonians 3:10, which says, "if a man will not work, he shall not eat." I'm guessing that Jod (may I call you Jod?) feels the same way about children. They probably shouldn't eat until they've done a full day at the mill. Doesn't it bother my readers that assholes like Arrington are involved in our country's government?  The idea that zealots like him are quoting an ancient text full of idiotic idioms as rules to live by is terrifying.

Note: Google lists this moron is both Jodney and Jodey. Either way he's dangerous, as is any politician who doesn't understand and appreciate the separation of church and state. As an atheist, I am particularly offended by these bible thumpers who want to govern the world based on an ancient book and a mythical character in the sky for whom we have no more evidence than that of Santa Claus, the Hobbits or the Munchins.
