They're taking a page, so to speak, from Thomas Jefferson's book...

 

Orange County, CA may be best known for TV shows about spoiled rich teens frolicing on the beach, but this Saturday (September 17) there'll be something different happening along the OC shores; a demonstration to publicize biblical immorality by a local atheist group. Backyard Skeptics, a local group of atheists, agnostics and skeptics will meet for lunch near the Huntington Beach pier and afterwards hold what their meetup page describes as an outreach program of dialogues with theists and anyone else who'd like to talk with them. But that's not all they're doing. According to the Orange County Register, they plan to publicly rip out passages from the Bible that they describe as promoting immoral laws.

This is interesting, but I don't think it will work in the way it wants.  Christians won't see the bad on that page as being removed, they'll pick something else on that page that they like and see that as being attacked.  That's assuming they just don't get enraged over the book being "destroyed" in the name of atheism or some such nonsense.

 

Someone over on Friendly Atheist suggested just showing those pages or stories explicitly, and just pointing out they are in the Bible. 

As it turns out, they only tore up photocopies of some bible verses.
