[W]hen I read the Bible I see it as NC-17. I don’t know of many TV shows or movies that feature rape, incest, graphic sex, murder, child sacrifice, etc… It’s like the gritty HBO shows that are “R+” rated.
I say “relish” in the flesh–that is to say “read the Bible and enjoy it!”
Here’s the sad part…Most evangelical schools promote this sort of legalism under the guise of “not stumbling people” with proh[i]bitionism and extreme forms of 20th century style [piety]. What a scary thought.
