MAY 29

Some of these so-called lost books of the Bible record ridiculous stories about Jesus’ childhood. In one of these stories, Jesus is making mud pies with the other children. However, unlike the other children’s mud pies, when Jesus throws his into the air, they become doves and fly away.

In another story from one of these loony “sacred writings,” Jesus kills another kid by pushing him off the top of a house. When he is accused of the other child’s death, the boy Jesus clears Himself by raising the dead kid back to life. Obviously, the exclusion of this kind of nonsense from the biblical canon had nothing to do with the prejudice of Christian fundamentalists, but with the preposterousness of these fables.
