This is the problem with Christians. They think they have a special pass to do whatever they want as long as it done in the name of their god. Now don’t get me wrong here. The average Christian does not think he or she is above the law on a day to day basis. But it is part of Christian religion and culture, and I’m telling you this from personal experience, to ignore the law when one feels that their god or their religion demands it. So, when Ray Comfort produced his bogused-up version of Darwin’s Origin of Species, the idea of doing it LEGALLY did not seem too important, apparently.
So he STOLE three pages of text written by someone else. Bald faced thievery. What an asshole.
Stan Guffey had been waiting months for Nov. 18 to arrive. On that day, Christian groups handed out free copies of a 150th-anniversary edition of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species on college campuses across the country. Guffey is a biology lecturer at the University of Tennessee who earned his doctorate studying genetic differences between northern and southern populations of brook trout. When he heard talk outside his office about people handing out books on the UT plaza, Guffey says, “I hot-footed it over to get myself a copy.”
“Would you like me to autograph this?” Guffey asked the distributors, telling them he is one of the authors, albeit unacknowledged.
Today’s quiz: How can you tell a Christian is lying?
