INeedAName: Great Janitor: Pointy Tail of Satan: You mean the distorted, inaccurate Bible in English, written for those too lazy to learn to read in Hebrew, Latin and Greek?I think they mean the Bible post Council of Nicea where they decided what was going to be in the Bible as we know it today, and what was going be considered non-canon. A friend of my explained to me when I was in my teens (older family friend, not another teenager) that prior to the Council of Nicea the Christian Church actually believed in reincarnation. The Council of Nicea ditched it because if your followers thought that they had another life, then they could screw around in this life and use the next one for a chance to get into Heaven. Tell them that you have only one life and now they are determined to get into Heaven on their one and only chance. He was also one of the first people to explain to me the possibility that Mary Magdaline wasn't a whore but a rather important woman in the church around the time of Christ. The Council of Nicea purposely reduced her to a whore to keep women subservient. Something that would be a bit difficult if the Bible explained that Christ had a woman who was as equal as the men in his company. The Council also pretty much deleted everything from the holy texts that they didn't like or agreed with or could pretty much threaten their political standing.
