Atheist's 'Bible' yanked from Sam's Club shelves

After fielding complaints from parents about its "mature" content, the Wal-Mart-owned retailer Sam's Club has pulled a reported 10,000 copies of a "Bible" off its shelves that uses plastic LEGO blocks to depict Old Testament scenes.

Brendan Smith, creator of the LEGO scenes and author of "The Brick Bible," reported earlier this week the Sam's Club decision.

"I have just been informed that Sam's Club is pulling 'The Brick Bible' from the shelves of all of their retail locations nationwide due to the complaints of a handful of people that it is vulgar and violent," Smith reported on his Facebook page. "This despite the book containing only straightforward illustrations of Bible stories using direct quotes from Scripture."

Sam's Club explained: "After selling this specific version online and in several club locations, we received numerous concerns from members and parents about the mature ...

I got some good laughs from that URL right from the start:

"The Genesis 1 account conflicts with the order of events that are known to science."
"The order of events known from science is in each case just the opposite."

Since when does science "know" anything? This is why the atheist is a fool; he thinks he knows something when he doesn't really. He has to repudiate logic to sustain arguments from science, yet he accuses Christians of being irrational!

The Bible IS vulgar and violent. The God of the Bible is a monster. And anybody who worships that beast is a fool.
By whose standards, yours? Anyway, let's examine those remarks:

• Vulgar means "common," and Bibles are common. Yawn.
• Violent? Yes, the Bible has violence. So what? Why is violence wrong?
• A monster? How can an invisible spirit be hideous? Or else that is a subjective & therefore meaningless remark.
• A fool? Compared to what? I could as easily call you a fool, and with Biblical warrant besides.

Another atheist paper tiger, with a lame "shock jock" act instead of reasoning.

Now now, you're spoiling WND's tempest-in-a-teapot! It's more satisfying to put on a show of pious outrage.

I find it odd that anyone should think a part of the Bible is unsuitable for children. Who sets moral standards here - industry ratings boards, or God?

And if parents don't like the author's website, URL blocking is available. However, it is an excellent opportunity for them to show their children what foolish paper tigers atheists really are. That is, if they've done some intellectual homework beyond what most churches teach.

I was wondering the same thing. Sounds like an oxymoron.

It's the same kind of thing as the Traditions of the Roman Catholic organisation.

Whereby they refuse to acknowledge God, Christ and the Holy Spirit.
