Sunday Sermon: God Hates Figs

Marcus is a subscriber to the SMBC Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal strip.

Today the cartoon outlines a Proof by Mortification  aspect of the Bible.

Now of course, Marcus, a budding and diligent Bible Passage student remembers that this is what my study guide Skeptics Annotated refers to as


[Jesus shouts at a fig tree for not bearing figs, even though it was out of season. He did this to show the world just how much God hates figs.]

A passage, whose misreading by presumably illiterate people in the 21st Century and their resulting actions has caused, and continues to cause, offence and suffering to many.
