Take a Left at Albuquerque

mapamundiI was reminded earlier today that the continents of North and South America are never mentioned in the infallible Book of God. No wonder Columbus refused to believe he hadn’t found a route to the East Asian coast: He relied on the mythology of the Bible as if it was the truth.

The only other explanation would be that God refused to acknowledge the existence of America and some very human public relations firm came up with that catchy phrase, “God Bless America.”

Either way, it doesn’t seem like Christianity has a firm position in America.
