Here's a Safire column that has inspired me to talk about a non-political issue that he raises.

There's all this talk about the ending to the story of Job. If nothing else, the debate shows how mutable the Bible is, and how it has changed over time as a result of human intervention. So it's not really the word of god, now is it? Take it for what you want (a bunch of goofy animal and ghost stories), but quit taking it so seriously, will 'ya?

"People, please, stop with the Bible. I mean, people talk about it like it's a... bible."
