    The .45 cal in the bible is a nice touch. Must be a bible from the Dallas Theological Seminary (since they do allow such things on campus in Texas). Last decision point, “every syllable in the Bible is from God’s keyboard”, needs to add, “quick, go and write a book about it, or start a new TV broadcast church (or better yet, do both), and make lots of money. Make sure there is much end-of-times talk, since it brings in the most money”.
