NZ Herald thinks it’s OK to ridicule the Old Testament.
And, it is ok. Praise the Lord, that Ana Samways chose to mock the old testament, sacred to Christians and Jews, instead of mocking the Quran, Mohammed or Muslims in her sideswipe column from Monday.
What do Christians and Jews do in response to ridiculing of their good book? Why, they write letters and discuss.
This Sideswipe column is only mildly witty in some parts. It was ridicule, but acceptable ridicule, and today, the NZ Herald published a letter from someone who was offended. Good on them. Power of the pen.
