Why is this News?

potterrewriteDid you catch this story making the rounds on social media?

Given that Thomas Jefferson rewrote the bible with scissors and glue, to suit his purposes, as did a team led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (to name only two such efforts), one wonders why this story catches our attention?

Oh, right — it’s news to a certain “our” when anyone with whom they disagree revises the parts they agree with. Ignoring, reinterpreting, or excising the parts “we” disagree with is, well, just common sense, right?

Got your scissors?
