The Wicked Bible and Trump Depression.

It’s May 8th everybody, hurray!  This is the day readers in 1631 were shocked, or pleased by today’s standards, to read in the King James Bible:  “Thou shalt commit adultery.”  No shit, this became known as the “Wicked Bible” or the “Adulterous Bible,” and on May 8th 1631 the printers were hauled before the fearsome Star Chamber for their blasphemous mistakes.  Fortunately, they were only heavily fined and banned from their profession instead of mutilated as so often happened by the church back then.  My only guestion is this:  What about the other criminal parts in the bible that weren’t changed?  Like (resourced from American Humanist Association): 

 …the Inquisition; the Crusades; the burning of witches; religious wars; pogroms against Jews; persecution of homosexuals; forceful conversions of heathens; slavery; beatings of children; brutal treatment of the mentally ill; suppression of scientists; and whippings, mutilations, and violent executions of
persons convicted of crimes. Those acts were a regular part of the Christian world for centuries and in some ways, still are.

As Thomas Paine said: “It (the bible) is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it as I detest everything that is cruel.”

 Ouch, so there you have it boys and girls, what’s in your bible?

On this day in 1980 the World Health Organization announced that smallpox had been successfully eradicated as a disease; unfortunately, Ronald Reagan was also elected that year as our first Slash and Burn president and the Republican Starve the Beast tax cuts for the rich, War on Science, and deregulation for all, began.  Since that time we haven’t cured shit, we’ve only found ways to postpone diseases with Big Pharma meds meant to make a shit load of money at the expense of you and me.  

Wake up people, you’re a lobster in hot water not seeing what’s happening.  The next step is kill social security.  In a Motley Fool article today, they point out that Trump’s budgets have all called for Social Security Cuts, and without reelection concerns if he is reelected, he’ll surely cut the shit out of it (I paraphrase, read the complete article here).

Finally, May 8th in the day Harry S Truman was born.  Here’s what he said about the depression:  “It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job, it’s a depression whey you lose yours.” 

Now you know. 



 

 

About Dr TV Boogie

If by a "Liberal," they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say that I'm a "Liberal." ~~ JFK View all posts by Dr TV Boogie
