Apparently, there really is a God. And He is good. And He is generous. And He has a fucking awesome sense of humor. Witness:
Best-selling creationist/ evangelist/ anti-gay-marriage-ist Ray Comfort knows how to regulate a Facebook page, and he will not have anyone calling Christians “bibliophiles” on it. Jews, Muslims, Atheists — they can love books, but not Christians, dammit. Comfort warned recently:
“If you call any other Christian on this page a ‘bibliophile’ I will ban you. Please show respect for your fellow species. Thanks.”
Comfort then explained that he thought a “bibliophile” was a “cross between pedophile and Bible.” Which, to be fair, does sound like the most terrifying thing ever.
Is there even a registry for these bibliophiles? They could be lurking near our children and we don’t even know it — in schools, online, even in our local libraries.
