Skip to comments.GQ Magazine Deems the Holy Bible One of the Most ‘Overrated’ Books of All Time.....
Posted on 04/20/2018 6:38:49 AM PDT by caww
Gentlemans Quarterly has proposed refashioning contemporary culture by unmooring it from the past, a feat that can be accomplished in part by updating lists of required reading.
First among these overrated books is the Bible, for which the GQ editors reserve some particularly choice epithets.... It is repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned, or, in a nutshell, certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced.
The core of the GQ proposal is the surgical excision of books that serve to keep traditional values alive.
As simple as it is straightforward, GQs plan follows the tried-and-true political strategy of Antonio Gramsci, the Italian communist mastermind who explained in great detail how to overcome a cultural hegemony by replacing it with a new one (counter-hegemony).
The brave new world that the cultural left wishes to establish cannot come about as long as folklore (which includes art, literature, history, and other sources of national identity) remains rooted in the ideas and values of the Judeo-Christian West.
GQs proposal can only be viewed in these terms. It is not about suggesting more entertaining literature. It is about changing the cultural hegemony for the generations to come.

Well bless their hearts...
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
I think I’ve heard of it. Isn’t that the overrated magazine for gay men and metrosexuals? Kept in business only because it is propped up by the same people who prop up other media in order to spew propaganda.
Their day of reckoning is coming. They will be held accountable and they will tremble in absolute terror. I am grateful for my redemption.
Wonder if the quran is also on the list?
Yeah, right. And the Beatles are more popular than Jesus Christ. /s
And using the same arguments, so must the Koran.
It’s not a book. It’s a library of 66 books and letters.
Hebrews 4:12 New International Version (NIV)
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. (1 Corinthians 1:18;
Another attack on the Bible, the most attacked book in history. Yet...it still stands. It is impossible to eradicate the word of God.
On reading GQ’s suggestions the only word that comes to mind is puerile.
Well...knock yourself out GQ boys....ya’ got a super bright future. In fact...be way ahead of the curve....make sure you get there first.
The bible is exactly what it claims to be. No more and no less. And it is a collection of writings from many different authors over thousands of years. And still in harmony...
GQ: Generally Queer
Of course they hate the Bible.
And yet the Left is very supportive of the traditions of “people of color” and “indigenous pipples.”
Were I not a Christian, there is still a disproportionately massive amount of wisdom within the pages of the Bible. That it is branded a "religious book" by modern liberalism should not make such wisdom forbidden.
