Democrats: Bibles must contain Satan's side
Democratic majority leader Nancy Pelosi revealed a proposal for a bill today that would require Bibles carry an opposing view.
As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Reps. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) prepare to push the return of the Fairness Doctrine to the front burner, language is being discussed which not only targets talk radio, but the Bible also.
"No book has been so dominating, sold more copies, or been more read than the Bible, however, the bible is very divisive and only presents one point of view. In the name of all fairness, it's time for that to change" Pelosi said.
The bill, if enacted into law would require bible publishers to provide, at their expense, an equal number of pages for Satan and his disciples to present their side of the story.
"For too long this book of hate has been allowed to spew one side unopposed, there must be a voice of reason to create an equilibrium of good and evil" Pelosi stated to loud applause before a group of activists from Democrats for Equal Voice In Literature and Scripture, also known as DEVILS.
On the Senate side, Hillary Rodham Clinton said that while she supported legislation which would require equal access for Satan to readers of the Bible, a conflict of interests may keep her from voting on an issue that would obviously benefit her lifetime employer.
When the senator was asked why Satanist don't write their own bible, Clinton responded, "This is about a monopoly. There is no other book that is so widespread and with so many readers that has been the best selling book in the world for so long. If we are going to be fair about this, the only solution is to include an opposing view in the scriptures."
While Satanist have in the past written many books, all of them have failed in comparison. "The fact is, scripture has been controlled for centuries, whenever anyone tries to add or take away anything, bigoted religious fanatics rise up to censor any diversity Lou Seffer, founder of DEVILS, said in an interview.
House Democrats did not respond to a question on whether they will be able to find enough bipartisan support to pass the bill.
No doubt, if achieved, this will be yet another control enacted by government to manipulate and confuse information in the free market place of ideas.
By why would they stop there; and just where will they stop?
In pondering those questions and the effects of laws which control or manipulate free speech, my imagination got the best of me or, maybe not.
Lets start an over/under on how many posts SLAM pelosi before realizing this is satire.
I’ll start at 17.
When it comes to Democrats, today’s satire is tomorrow’s proposed law.
Satire it may be, but I certainly wouldn’t put it past the Godless dems to try something in that vein.
“...require Bibles carry an opposing view.”
No doubt to be written by Hillary herself!
Yikes! Better be careful with satire, it may be stolen for legislation some day.
There’s plenty of reason to slam Pelosi anyway.
Unfortunately this is not just satire, but blatant slander, as the post presumes to quote Pelosi as saying something she did not.
I’m not a fan of Pelosi, but I can’t stand this kind of Internet trash diatribe....An unfortunate result of the global Internet with no checks and balances.
I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if people didn't tend to believe every stinkin thing they read.
