Last October, a local renegade Baptist Church made it known far and wide (really…it got international coverage) that on Halloween there would be a book burning. The books to be burned were all Bibles that were not King James Version, as well as all contemporary Christian writing, including Christian fiction, and religious books of all denominations. Also on the list were CDs and tapes of Christian music. Well, I’m all for a good bonfire, but I’m also someone who thinks it’s a major sin to write on books or dog-ear pages.
It’s just as well that I hadn’t planned on attending the big book burning, since shortly before it was to take place the local fire marshal advised the pastor of said church that it is illegal to burn books. The book burning was changed to a book shredding, and was poorly attended. Not much shredding occurred, either.
That pastor as well as Fundamentalists everywhere would do well to avoid LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs. Somehow, a retelling of the Bible in lolcat would probably offend them, especially when they learn that the Jesus character is “Happy Cat.” Many Christians believe that God has a sense of humor; he must, look at us! I knew a pastor who always carried an illustration of Jesus laughing, and I’d like to think that all those historical religious figures agree that — at times — nothing is sacred.
LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs is an abridged Bible translated into lolcat. It is representative of a wiki project to interpret the entire Bible into a lolcat version. I don’t know what you’d get if you put a cat and a Bible in a blender, but the LOLcat Bible is probably an approximation of the results. Or maybe the results of crossing a Bible with a cat.
