I was taught NOT to destroy or write in books... but to go as far as to mutilate a Holy Bible is incredibly inconsiderate and careless. I wish his phone would have started ringing, would have served him right. LOL

La Petite Morte

Ok, first, that's not a Bible he's holding. You can tell by looking at the page with print on it. Unless it's one of those new language easy reader Bibles, it's just some book that looks like a Bible. Second, you can tell that this 'book' was made to be a secret stash place. That hollow that the phone is in is too smooth for a home job. He probably bought this online as an already created thing. They're not that hard to find. Third, we don't know what he was at the church for. Was it a wedding? A funeral? A baptism? A seminar? An AA meeting? Assuming this pic was taken on Sunday morning during a sermon is silly. So... before you lot get your collective panties in a bunch, actually *look* at the picture and think for a second. SHEESH!

Hey, I had a hollowed out book in High School and put a small transistor radio in it to rest my head on the book and listen during what we called study hall. Never got caught. Come t find out though I believe the book was quite valuable and didn't have a clue. Probably could have funded college for a year with it. My loss.

It's possible he's reading the Bible ON HIS PHONE. I thought a young fellow in one of our musical groups at church was texting during the sermon, but the leader said he was following the scripture reading on his phone. Don't be too quick to judge- you can't see what's on his phone.

Don't know why people are so offended by him doing this. Some people are alienated for not attending church regularly by friends or neighbors, and they're essentially forced to go. Blame the people who excessively pressure others into going to church.
