Upgrade your Bible

Read the transcript or watch the video: it's 'trade in your bible for porn day.'

The most entertaining part is watching Tucker Carlson declare, apropos of almost nothing, that the law is derived from an independent notion of right and wrong, which implies a higher power. Apart from the logical flaws in this argument (an explanation of which I leave in the capable hands of Mr. Bertrand Russell), many aspects of the Anglo-American law descend in substantial part from Roman law. While my knowledge of the New Testament is admittedly terrible, I'm fairly certain that it was those same Romans who crucified Christ. If our legal system does rest upon an independent notion of right and wrong, isn't it more likely pulled from the teachings of Jupiter than Jesus?

I can't believe The Daily Show hasn't picked this up yet...
