Da Bible IN TXT (^_^)

Great news for all you IM speaking religion junkies out there, the Bible is in TXT. That's right, you heard me. All 31,173 verses have just been translated into IM speak by the The Bible Society in Australia. Now you can download the holy texts for free onto your cellphone. . . AND understand them.

It begins:
In da Bginnin God cre8d da heavens & da earth. . .
Michael Chant, a representative of the Society, says his son spent six weeks translating the entire Bible into txt messages. About 30,000 txt messages to be precise.

In an interview with the French news agency AFP, Chant said that "It's a logical step. Our aim at the Bible Society is to get the Bible out there among the people and this is a very effective way of doing it."

Here's the punch line: it's free! It's all free. The entire of the holy texts is now just one click away.

This is funny, like really funny. It's just another example of religion changing to fit the wants and needs of its suppliers of money. Like this. If this trend continues, God will be soon be wearing an afro and platform shoes.

You know, when it's not causing untold devestation and ruining the lives of nonconformists, religion can be pretty entertaining.

Much thanks to Seth for finding the info for this.
