NewsCorp Tells HarperCollins to have Thomas Nelson Publishers Sell The Satanic Bible

Since Thomas Nelson is the world’s largest publisher of Bibles, their ownership decided it would be a good idea to have them diversify the types of Bibles they produce. Publication date for The Satanic Bible is set for October 31, 2019.

NewsCorp Director, Cashme Aut, said, “Our global community is just that. Global. We must acknowledge the diversity of beliefs in our world.” Rumor has it they will also add an Atheist Bible in the Fall, complete with 2,400 blank pages.


Happy April Fool’s Day!

    I was “fooled” until I read about the atheist bible (and yes, it would be filled with blank pages). And I KNEW it was April Fool’s Day. Thanks for the laugh (and so glad Thomas Nelson doesn’t have to go thru this)

      I originally thought this too. Let the Holy Spirit heal the wound & give him permission to change your perspective as He quickly did with me. I’m your sister & Steve’s our brother. We all have the same loving Father. Families that stick together stay together. And there really is great relief in knowing this has yet to reach our horizons. But when it does, as the Word confirms it will, God will sustain us until we meet Him face to face.

        There is not a wound to be healed. I believe, however, that turning a Satanic bible into a joke is just not appropriate. The evil one is no laughing matter.

      This is very bad taste indeed. April fool’s day is not for serious Followers. Would our Lord -or any other Biblical Personality- be part of this? In light of all the immense problems the world faces today, we should make no fun with the enemy. Sorry to write, but many comments show how shallow a mentality prevails. I am very disappointed. Elaine you are courageous.

    Today I woke to who I was;
    it’s time for a new cup.
    First, I’ll go off the booze
    and turn to 7-Up.
    Next, cigars have got to go,
    and therein lies a tale
    but I would like you to know
    that I did not inhale.
    Fast cars and women will be hard;
    I’ll miss them deep inside
    but I have a biggish yard;
    there one or two I can hide…
    Some days just bring out my worst,
    especially April The First.

    Right. 2,400 blank pages. They wouldn’t need an editorial board at all, would they! Or even writers or beta readers or . . . marketing and publicity? What in the world would you say to advertise a blank book?

    Thankfully I scrolled down to see the April Fools message. I was getting ready to call my pastor and share the horrible news. Now I wait for my blood pressure to go down. I don’t know if that was the best or the worst April Fools joke I’ve heard. Jeez Louise!!

    Steve, for what it may be worth, I thought this was the best April Fool’s Joke I have yet seen.

    First, it was funny, once one realised the jibe.

    Second, it carried a sting in the tail; we cannot be oblivious to that which the secular wolrd is trying to force.

    In my home state of New Mexico, there is legislation pending (that the new governor WILL sign) that will criminalise a doctor’s conscience-based refusal to perform abortion at birth.

    Only if we see the writing on the wall, and especially through humour, can we fight effectively.
