He had thirty sons, who rode thirty donkeys.
Sounds like a show-tune. Is God into show-tunes?
By “rode” do they mean in the Yankee sense of the word, or the Irish? Knowing a little of how the pre-bronze age societies worked, it’d be an even bet on which.

This is best described as biblical silliness. A book that related the time of rule by judges (something still common among all Semitic tribal cultures)gets appropriated as bible ….
Have any of you read A Canticle for Leibowitz?
Imagine if one day, HorsesAss becomes “biblical.”
Churches will feature the hindquarters of a horse on the wall of piety as they read form the sacred words of the Prophet Goldy, his Deity (Me), and the sycophants and critics who people this blog.
Imagine what the church mothers 9of that day will make of Roger Rabbit? Maybe they will have sanctified him and recreated Easter in his name!
Welcome to the weekly Horses Ass atheist Assholes convention.
It seems that Scripture, for whatever reason, belabors what would seem to many of us to be the obvious. Think of “Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights, and then he was hungry.”
I read “A Canticle for Leibowitz” for the first time in 9th grade. My freshman year science teacher noticed me reading “Dune” and called me to his desk about a week later and handed me a brand new copy of it. I need to dig that out and read it again, it has been far too long.

And a little one, at that. Now that this quarter is winding down, and the final for the Environmental Science class I took is next Wednesday, I must admit that seeing all the tidbits of knowledge I had already developed for myself, wound up into a rather tidy, if underloaded package was quite refreshing. It had all the shit that the TeaFascists hate. The damage humans have caused to the world in their quest to conquer everything and monetize it, the near total destruction of our farmland and oceans etc. good class. Quite a few home-schooled children in it, as the localities around here have a large contingent of hard core fundamentalist “christians” who had never set foot in a real school in their entire lives.
They, to a person, had never heard of the Unification Church and were completely floored by the idea that such a massive and wealthy “church” could be such a profitable corporation with its claws in nearly every industry in the world. If you eat sushi, you are supporting the Moonies. Read romance novels? You are supporting the Moonies.
Etc, etc, etc.
They had never even heard the name Sung Myung Moon.
