A talking Bible, that is, as I suppose it could be argued at a stretch that munching on a few scraps of paper might stave off the hunger pangs for an hour or two.
I guess we’ll never know how many people died because these 600 bibles took the place of a consignment of MREs, drinking water or plasma.
Here’s an idea…. Why not just get the Pope or some other wild-eyed shaman to bless a nuke, then just turn the place into a sea of glass? This seems to me to be a far more efficient means of sending them wholesale to a “better place” than just allowing a handful of them to starve or bleed to death.
As for the Scientologists, let’s not go there, eh? That way madness lies.
