Mayor Tom Hayden of Flower Mound has declared this the year of the Bible.
Hopefully people will learn from reading their Bible that it’s OK to beat their slaves but don’t actually kill them (Exodus 21:20-21). Also women should not teach men, or have authority over them (1 Timothy 2:12). Divorce and lusting after women are sins, (Luke 16:18 & Matthew 5:28), but genocide is a good thing (1 Samuel 15:3).
After a few weeks of this, hopefully they will remember why they quit reading their Bible, and put it back on the shelf to gather dust where it belongs.
