An interesting side-bar. I'm almost 50... I always believed I would live to see a time when our Bibles would be illegal in this country.

Unfortunately, we still have the first amendment.

I think he's counting on one of the Democrats to get rid of the Constitution.
He's going to be so disappointed...

bibles are unwelcome in my house.

Considering that we have the First Amendment (which guarantees the right of free speech -- including publishing) and the fact that 85% of the country still identifies as Christian, what in the world makes you think that any such bizarre thing would happen? Nothing in reality, that's for sure -- just your own paranoid and/or martyrish delusions.

Well then my friend, you should be thankful there are people out there constantly fighting to keep your country from becoming a theocracy of any kind. You may not like them trying to preserve the rights of the people your religion hates but you can at least appreciate them trying to preserve your rights in the face of people who's religion hates you.

The only argument I have against it is when you make something taboo, it gets REAL popular.
Illegal bibles would become more valuable than say, a toasted cheese sandwich with a face burned onto it. Thelma Todd, Morey Amsterdam; it doesn't matter - call it Jesus or Virgin Mary and watch it skyrocket on eBay.

Part of me hopes for that day. Part of me respects the 1st amendment. I'm so conflicted...

I actually used Bibles being illegal as a plot point in a story once.
Catholic Bibles, though -- and banned by fundies. That seemed a bit more realistic than a nefarious secular-humanist conspiracy.

Freedom of religion, bitch.
Ten bucks says this guy is one of those people who believes that Fundies is an evil, Satanic cult with the sole agenda of destroying Christianity in the USA.

That would go about as well as the war on drugs. Replace hydroponics with printers, and chronic with KJV...
The bible cartel would emerge and make a killing.

No book is illegal. The babble is still bullshit for morons, but it's legal. I use 'em to wipe my ass.

Your side bar makes you look like a nut bar.
