A couple days ago, I read a quote from a politician that combined a couple scriptures. It was one of those, “How many animals did Moses bring on the ark?” kinds of things. The statement should make him appear to be religious to those who don’t read the Bible, and stupid those who do. In an honest world, he would alienate everybody. But what is more likely is that the quote galvanized a large contingency that pretends to read the Bible.
