A student shared the above with me. All these years teaching the Bible, how did I miss the bestiality? The depiction of it as a novel, as though the entire thing were a single piece of literature in a single genre, is also well off target. But presumably the point (however much one may criticize the details) is the contrast between the graphic contents of the Bible and the reading to children from its pages. I've discussed before the fact that much of the Bible is rated R. There is indeed something puzzling about parents who, for instance, encourage children to be exposed to the Bible from a very young age, and then object to their reading literature with sexual or violent elements in it in high school.
Anyway, I like to share things that students send my way, and offer some reflections on them when appropriate. What do others make of the image above? Funny? Too many details wrong to be entertaining? Or, however problematic in the details, does it make a serious point about the incongruity of treating the Bible as though it were suitable for children?
