I beg your pardon?  Who ever claimed Jesus wrote the Bible?

 

The story that they use is that his disciples wrote the new testament.

But it's a collection of myths and stories, which was later added to by clerics and politicians.

 

But nobody anywhere (other than idiots) claim Jesus wrote it.

Oh I understand the context, it's Torolol's nonsensical comment I take issue with.

 

Personally, I have been saying for years that Coca Cola should redo the "Teach the world to sing" advert in multiple languages.  It was iconic.

Yeah nobody is THAT stupid. The irony is still not lost on me that people are getting butthurt by a song from a multicultural company about a multicultural product, promoting multiculture in a nation that was founded on multiculturalism.

wow reading through a lot of those complaints make me hate people here more and more. I wish my wife would let us move out of the USA more and more each day :p However, i am sure that level of ignorance is everywhere not just here.

I'm sure at least 80% of Reddit users think that quote is legit.

Maybe it's because this is actually something Michele Bachmann might say for real ;)

The Bible wasn't written in English, it was translated to English from one of the 3 languages it was first written in, Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.
