Overheard at Booth 4: Sacred Texts

So if the Constitution is a divinely-inspired text, then what does that make the other sacred texts?

What do you mean?

I mean, what's to stop other things that people have written from being considered inspired by God?  The Magna Carta.  The Koran.

A billion people already think the Koran is written by God.

Right!  So, it's like, is everything written by God, or nothing?

Who says it's an all or nothing?  What we've got is everyone arguing on what is or is not written by God ... if there IS anything such as a "god" ... and it's all just who thinks what is or isn't.  Personal opinion.

But OK, just sticking with the Constitution ... why are Conservatives saying that IT is written by God?

Because they wanna control minds.  Easy to control minds when it's got the force of some divine Creator of Everything behind it.  Then they can easily make the leap of "God wrote the Second Amendment, so that's how that 17 year old kid could kill two people who were coming at him with a skateboard."
