Betty on the News: Pastor to Host Halloween Bible-Burning Party
Sounds like … fun?
Pastor Marc Grizzard of North Carolina alleges that the King James version of the Bible is the only true word of God, and is therefore holding a book-burning shindig at the Amazing Grace Baptist Church on Halloween night.
Grizzard, who calls all other editions of the Bible “satanic”, has enlisted 14 members of the church to help him in setting fire to the versions (music and books by Christian authors will also go up in smoke according to FOXNews.com).
“I believe the King James version is God’s preserved, inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God… for English-speaking people,” Gizzard said.
While many residents of Canton, N.C. are down with the concept, a few are not so supportive.
“I think some of the newer versions make it easier for people to understand,” resident Judy Kirby explained.
The book-burning is being promoted as a social event (a barbecue dinner will be served!) and it will run from “7 p.m.- Till,” according to an announcement posted on the church’s Web site which no longer exists. (FOXNews.com)
