Why does it not surprise me that here in America it’s possible to purchase a Bible with a camouflage cover?
“Our NIV (New International Version) Bible in Realtree camo is our best selling item, followed closely by our camo Bible cover,” said David Lingner, the president of Arkansas-based Christian Outdoorsman, which sells Christian-themed hunting and angling products online.
The cover of this Bible is graced by leaves and tree bark. This enables the devout who also hunt to take their Bible into the woods with them while concealing it from their prey.
You just gotta laugh at nonsense like that. But wait, it gets better! Here’s the description of the “Christian Outdoorsman” shop sign:
The C in Christian on the shop’s Web site is shaped like a fish hook while the O in Outdoorsman has a cross-shaped rifle scope site inside of it.
So the C as a fishhook isn’t too bad, but that O as a cross-shaped rifle scope is a little unnerving. What an … interesting … use of what is supposedly a symbol of peace and love.
