Don't Reply to Well-followed Christians: A Twitter Lesson

But then this happened:

(At least chickens have an excuse, eh?)

I learnt a lesson that day:…

"I once met a Texan who..."

"I once met a Texan who bragged that he had only ever read one book from cover to cover: the Bible" - Alom Shaha, The Young Atheist's Handbook.

It doesn't take long on the internet, or in real life, to come across this old chestnut:
