"I tend to hang around in the more scientific and philosophic realms of thought. So while I understand most of these responses I would actually take the position that it is a “throw away” question. There is no meaning to life……"
"If you look at this from a psychological perspective I would encourage you to focus on a couple of points.
This is about you. It is about your history and your changes and what you believe to be “correct” answer. And while I and many…"
"Is this about pornography? No, it isn't! According to Chad Wilson it is about insulting people!
Why are these people feeling insulted? Could it be that the college students are calling them names or otherwise characterizing them in a degrading…"
"I think calling the Bible smut is less insulting to someone then calling it fiction. Calling it smut just points out that some of the contents inside are what you would find in violent and pornographic films or literature. Calling it fiction is flat…"
"Was it mean spirited, yes, was it just using the campaign to poke fun at Christians, no. The campaign was used to not only be noticed, but to point out that something the Biblical group is so against has many similarities to what can be seen in…"

The following could compete with any porn in existence today and it's directly from the Bible.
23:1 The word of the Lord came to me: 23:2 “Son of man, there were two women who were daughters of the same mother. 23:3…"
Recently the atheist student organization on the campus of the University of Texas – San Antonio held what I would surmise as a publicity stunt. In the public form of the school campus the group offered to exchange porn for bibles. There are several issues, most of which are associated with immature behavior and what I would term adolescent level judgment.
