#81 Oh, Waiter, Another Order Of Crow?


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?)


  1. Steve, do not be so hard on yourself. Unfortunately we are living in a time where people are, as the old saying goes, "dammed if they do and dammed if they don't." I speak as an authority on the subject because I am the wife of a Southern Baptist Worship Minister. We have a combined service of 70 plus years in Southern Baptist Churches and Organizations. I am sure the people you unintentionally offended will forgive you and I know God will if you ask him. Hope you have a much earned vacation.
