    And the great thing is my bible could finally get my rocks off again. It's been a long time since Adam and Eve worked for me.

    Do the bibles have to be in good condition or will they accept one with the pages of Genesis stuck together?

    Sounds like a cheap publicity stunt more than anything else

    Agreed. Say anything or do anything outrageous to get your name noticed.

    As opposed to an expensive publicity stunt?

    Or the Song of Solomon.

    Yes, but also hilarious.

    If I give God $4.5 million dollars will he take Roberts? What can I have done to Roberts for $4.50 and a Starbucks card?

    A classic deflection to change the subject
    I merely made an observation on the article being discussed in the thread, nothing more

    Agreed, that is a pretty stupid stunt just like the stunt in the original post.

    I'd like a more detailed discussion of what constitutes the "high-grade porn." Neither of the articles address this important topic.

    Is it porn literature? Or is it visual porn?

    Whatever that definition is - not that I am at all interested in its detail - I do sincerely hope that these juveniles doing the dissemination are promptly prosecuted; at very least they are wasting their parent's tuition expense at most they are trafficking in illegality. Let us pray that the Dean at U Texas San Antonio investigates these bible burners and brings in law enforcement backed by firm prosecution.

    I thought porn was legal. And its freedom of speech too.

    Hmmmm, that sounds like it would be a "not quite as cheap" publicity stunt to me

    A University spokesman says this is totally legal. Plus, this is Texas. They don't like laws.

    They're going to give themselves a youthful punk image - something atheism really wants to avoid if 'it' wants to be listened to by people who are religious.

    Also erotic stories are hawt. Much hotter than video porn.

    Incredible how quickly "socially liberal" and "freedom of speech" goes out the window when they are doing something you don't agree with.

    p.s. I am burning a bible and a copy of the selfish gene right now.

    I would have to agree with that assessment

    I'll agree with you there. Can't say the bible did much for me though.
