Very scary. Wonder if they would consider putting such a sticker on the bible?

My father would have appreciated the humour in this (he had a 1967 Chevy Malibu at the time all the hot rodders were putting giant Ford and Chevy stickers on their cars - my dad put a big Ford sticker on his Chevy. The hotrodders thought he was nuts, but dad laughed at them twice - putting the wrong sticker on his car, then laughing when they didn't get the joke)

PS - I think it's damned funny too. :P
If you can't laugh, what good are you?

I believe such has been crushed by the Supreme Court, though perhaps one of the lawyers can answer.

Be a durn' sight better if they'd put a Jesus sticker in those books. This evolution jibber-jabber can't stand a chance against Jesus!
