A Conversation Starter....


"A literalist interpretation of Scripture tells us that God is a rock that sent a bird to cause a virgin
to give birth to a loaf of bread.

And this is supposed to be an improvement on obtaining a chiseled code of conduct from a flaming shrubbery in a cloud.

If a literal understanding is all
that is required for faith,
then I'm a yellow ducky."


-- Rabbi Ben Sylva
