THIS BLOG WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO:
The National Education Association, for not giving them proper credit for their book list for the book drive mentioned in SB80,
Congregation Emanu-El of the City of New York, for jumping to conclusions as to why the Bible wasn't included on its book list, which, as I just mentioned, is not really "its" book list.
Rabbi Joshua Davidson for questioning his intentions.
Our worldwide audience for dragging them into this.
And if THAT weren't enough, I was told by my best friend and toughest critic, Bettijane Eisenpreis, that if the NEA included the Bible, they'd have to include the New Testament and the Koran. I kinda forgot about the deeper ramifications of the Freedom of Religion clause of the First Amendment.MY BAD!
The Bible is STILL a must-read, but kids REALLY shouldn't read it unless certain stories are adapted in a sanitized picture-book format or explained in some watered-down, understandable, fashion. (Personally, I got a good chuckle out of VeggieTales' CGI comedy adaptation of "Jonah," which featured the Pythonesque "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything.")
This blog will also take a two-week leave of absence due to a vacation in Philadelphia and the Thanksgiving holiday, barring any unforeseen breaking news story.
Gobble gobble, buckaroos! (Or should I say, pilgrims?)
