TO Dayton, Ohio, where bus driver Ricky Wagoner, 49, has been shot once in the leg and twice in the Bible he keeps in his breast pocket.

Woman walking with Jesus attack another woman with Bible

Evelyn Mills Moore
BIBLE basher of the day is Evelyn Mills Moore, 57, of Saddlebrook Court in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, who hit a woman “numerous times about her body with a closed fist and striking her with a Bible about her left arm”.

Hurricane Sandy is here because of those awful gays

THE weather is not something anyone can control, not that religious people understand. They’re like those people who wear lucky underpants, thinking it has any discernible effect on an upcoming football match (your pants/god has about as much influence as the lifeless mop in your kitchen).

Codex Sinaiticus Bible Was Written By A Woman

bibleTHE 800-odd pages of The Codex Sinaiticus, the world’s oldest surviving Bible, written in Greek in the fourth century AD, is now online.

The Codex differs from later version of the Bible. St Mark’s Gospel makes no mention of the resurrected Jesus Christ, or “omits”, as Christians are wont to have it.

Lucinda has not yet been abbreviated to Luke, and the images of Jesus working as a scarecrow in his father’s fields have been removed due to a legal battle over copyright with Getty images.
