How well do AmeriKKKans who profess to be devout Christians really follow the 700 rules of living found in the 100% true, always to be obeyed, literal Word of God?

Well, there are still plenty of churches that allow women to teach men in direct conflict with 1 Timothy 2:11-13: [11) A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12) I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13) For Adam was formed first, then Eve.] By that law in God's Holy Writ, Hillary Clinton should not be President. Or, for that matter, in the Senate.

How about Ecclesiastes 9:8 [Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil.]? A lot of Christian men wear dark suits to church.

And how many adulterers sit in church pews as pillars of the community, instead of being stoned to death as the Bible, the 100% true, must be obeyed, literal Word of God?

Well, A. J. Jacobs' new book, The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible, chronicles his attempt to follow the Bible's rules, all 700 of them, literally. Isn't it ironic that a journalist would make that effort and not a hardcore member of Jebus' flock?
