Apparently, there's a Southern Baptist church near Asheville, NC, that's planning a book-burning for Halloween (why Halloween, you ask? No clue, I answer. Not like All Hallow's Eve or All Saint's Day are in the Southern Baptist liturgical calendar, such as it is. But I digress). The books? Damn near everything, including pretty much all versions of the Bible that aren't the King James. (Even the New King James. Everyone's a critic).
*sigh* I don't really know why I find this quite SO depressing. Mostly, I guess, because I grew up in a Southern Baptist church in NC (although the other end of the state). And no, I don't miss it - didn't fit in then, would fit in much less now. But. . . burning the BIBLE? Because you don't believe in the particular VERSION? Seriously?
*sigh* There are days when I wonder if we ever make any progress at all.
