Barry,

 I saw this and I had to reply. (Love your posts by the way.)

I attended catholic schools and the old testament wasn't pushed.  Even they recognized it was, as Hitchens says, written by primitives for primitives.   Fast forward 40 years.  My kids bought me the movie "Pulp Fiction" and we all know the scene where Samuel L. Jackson quotes that bible verse out of Ezekiel, "The path of the righteous man ..."  So one night, alone in my hotel room, I found that book left by those Gideon people and I searched for that passage.  You probably know what I did not.  The movie quote was an invention of Quentin Tarantino's mind.   The real revelation was that in reading the Book of Ezekiel I came to realize what a deranged and sick individual he must have been.  And people take that book literally.  Wow!

@Geoff - Thanks :) The remarkable thing is that Tarantino's verse would fit right in there and not be out of place at all. Ezekiel and Revelation were both likely written by schizophrenics. As for the rest of the Bible, I dunno what their problem was.

The stickers I've seen, and bought some of those that Reg shows on the outside of a Bible. As I commented elsewhere on this site, I have a dilemma in that there are hundreds of Bibles in the main branch of the Nashville Public Library, and I have 4 stickers and can't afford like 300 or so.
