Roasted Bible and Fried Chicken for Halloween

I nominate this story as the Baptist story of the year:

The Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, N.C. will celebrate Halloween by burning Bibles that aren’t the King James Version, as well as music and books and anything else Pastor Marc Grizzard says is a satanic influence ... During the book burning, according to the Web site, barbecued chicken fried chicken and “all the sides” will be served. (See full story)

I wonder what they would say if they knew King Jimmie was gay? Or that he hated and even killed Christian dissenters (Wightman is identified by Baptist historian Thomas Crosby as a Baptist; History of the English Baptists, Volume 1, 108-109)

Hearing about book burnings always makes me lose my appetite. That minister's list of liberal heretics is hard to believe! Like you, I wonder how much this fellow really knows about King James. I wonder what other violence will stem from this book burning barbeque?
