Bible is getting used like a weapon
This state legislator said in her defense, “The Christian Bible gets used like a weapon around this place,” so one day she placed one of the lounge Bibles under a couch cushion. (“Arizona Democrat apologizes for hiding Bibles at State Capitol,” Arizona Republic, 4-26-23)
The exposed terrorist had a sense of humor though. She tried to cool off Republican evangelical ardor by placing another one of the Bibles in the refrigerator.
But consider this. Republicans may be doing their fair share of terrorizing as well.
The Bible is a history book and is not solely concerned about sexual morality, church attendance, and Republican politics. Republicans are essentially ripping pages out of the Bible by limiting its reach to their own partisan denominational concerns. And they are asking for church to rule over state, not just separate from it.
