  • now THAT needs to be a bumper sticker!!!

    • You’re right, it does.  

      • and then I will sneak into the parking lot of the “community” nearby with the big banner that says “Church ~ the Way We Like It” (with giant pictures of an electric guitar, blue jeans & a venti espresso) & stick my little gifties on their bumpers…

    • Or a facebook cover photo. Hmmm…

    I wonder if I can get a bumper sticker sized label for my Dymo printer…

    “It’ll do to kiss the book on still, won’t it?” growled Dick, who was evidently uneasy at the curse he had brought on himself.
      “A Bible with a bit cut out!” returned Silver derisively.  “Not it.  It don’t bind no more’n a ballad-book.”
      “Don’t it, though?” cried Dick, with a sort of joy.  “Well I reckon that’s worth having, too.”

    And he had a couple of Bibles in need of customized repair, and those were an easy fifty dollars apiece — just brace the page against a piece of plywood in a frame and scorch out the verses the customers found intolerable, with a wood-burning stylus; a plain old razor wouldn’t have the authority that hot iron did.  and then of course drench the defaced book in holy water to validate the edited text.  Matthew 19:5-6 and Mark 10:7-12 were bits he was often asked to burn out, since they condemned re-marriage after divorce, but he also got a lot of requests to lose Matthew 25:41 through 46, with Jesus’s promise of Hell to stingy people.  And he offered a special deal to eradicate all thirty or so mentions of adultery.  Some of these customized Bibles ended up after a few years with hardly any weight besides the binding. — The Bible Repairman,     Tim Powers
