Is Hector Avalos Right?
In The End of Biblical Studies, Hector Avalos argues that the bible is too irrelevant to take seriously. If the routes taken to this blog are any indication, maybe he's right. Here are my three blogposts which get the most visits, none of which pertain to The Busybody's biblical focus:
The 25 Most Controversial Movies of all Time
Pedophilia and Ephebophilia
Never mind the bible: people want fantasy, scandalous film, and young flesh (or perhaps a combination of all three). Come to think of it, the bible has plenty of this stuff -- fantasy, controversial themes and imagery, low ages of consent -- so what's the problem? Maybe the bible is pretty relevant after all.
