Of related interest, I blogged once before about a similarly problematic calendar page, but with a quote from the Gospel of Luke, where the speaker in the original context ought to have made it even more obvious that the words did not belong on a Christian devotional calendar…

    Oh wow. I now have to troll the evangelical calendar market with quotes taken out of context. Also, lots of ellipses.
