‘Atlantic’ Writer Mocks Christianity, Says If Bible True, God Raped The Virgin Mary
Jeffery Taylor, a liberal writer for The Atlantic, took to Salon this week to try and ease his conscience on the issue of Christianity. He did this, naturally, by completely blasting the faith of millions of Americans, Catholics and otherwise, with obscene and offensive comparisons and descriptions, along with a few slaps directed toward GOP candidates who confidently profess their faith. Taylor started his op-ed by offering his disapproval that the Guinness Book of World Records lists the book at “non-fiction,” and suggested they should consider placing it in the “fantasy” section:
These politicians are hardly alone in supersizing the Good Book’s stature. The masses throughout history have used their cash and credit cards to assert the Bible’s primacy; they have, in fact, made it the best-selling book of all time, though Guinness World Records commits the unpardonable error of listing it in the non-fiction category. Fantasy would have been a better choice, if fantasy of a particularly absurdist bent.
