People will do anything if god commands it…

Y’know, if more people heard god telling them to walk around naked instead of telling them to infringe upon the rights of others, I’d be out of a job.

Drivers in Charlotte, N.C., faced traffic stemming from an unusual distraction Saturday: Two women and two children walking down the street naked. “Like freshly-born baby naked,” police Capt. Rod Farley said. “This was Adam and Eve stuff, not even a loincloth.” When the women were questioned, they said “the Lord told them to get naked and walk down the street.”

Response from Christians will be something along the lines of:  “That’s lewd, indecent, and wrong and nowhere in the bible!  God would never command that!”

And I’ll always hear the unspoken second part of that response:  “God would command Abraham and Jephthah to kill their children!  That’s moral, wholesome, and good and clearly in the bible!”

Of course, what better reason do Christians have to think god spoke to Abraham but not to the nude strollers?  Actually, you can get the account directly from the mouths of the nude people and all you have are far-removed re-tellings of the Abraham story.
