2 June 2014. Proddies Issue Crank Map of “Most Bible-Minded Cities”

00 americas most bible-minded cities. infographic. 2014. american bible society. 31.05.14


Read this. Read it? Good! It’s a crock o’ shit from stem to stern. I’d say that it’s nothing that good Orthodox Christians should get involved in. Note well that all the top “Bible-minded” communities are in the Baptist Bible Belt. They put Albany NY, where I live, as next-to-last, but I’ll say that there are plenty of churches and synagogues. Granted, we don’t have any of the phoney mega-churches here, with their entertainment masquerading as worship and their surrender to lowest-common-denominator suburbanite zeitgeist. That means that the American Bible Society is saying, without blushing, that they only consider “Evangelicals” and those like them to be Christians. That’ll be news for all the good Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Reformed, and Anglican people… we had the baroque notion that not only are we Christians, but that our pedigree goes back further than that of the upstart American Radical Sectarians (“Evangelicals”, Pentecostalists, Mormons, and other such Modern American Sects). It leaves the Jews out in the cold (I had the vain idea that they were religious people, apparently not, according to the ABS!).

This is why Orthodox Christians should have as little as possible to do with so-called “Evangelicals” and their works… they don’t consider us Christians! “Bible-believing Christian”… what an oxymoronic phrase… there was a Church before there was a Bible, and don’t ever forget that. In fact, what the above map indicates is where bibliolatry is the strongest… that’s the elevation of the Bible into an idol. Yes, you can fall off the rock on the right-hand as much as you can fall off it to the left. Have a care… there be dragons… some of them are “nice” and smile overly much. There be cowpats in that there field for the unwary…
