Because deer often become spooked at the sight of a Holy Bible.

Why does it not surprise me that here in America it’s possible to purchase a Bible with a camouflage cover?

“Our NIV (New International Version) Bible in Realtree camo is our best selling item, followed closely by our camo Bible cover,” said David Lingner, the president of Arkansas-based Christian Outdoorsman, which sells Christian-themed hunting and angling products online.

The cover of this Bible is graced by leaves and tree bark. This enables the devout who also hunt to take their Bible into the woods with them while concealing it from their prey.

You just gotta laugh at nonsense like that. But wait, it gets better! Here’s the description of the “Christian Outdoorsman” shop sign:

The C in Christian on the shop’s Web site is shaped like a fish hook while the O in Outdoorsman has a cross-shaped rifle scope site inside of it.

So the C as a fishhook isn’t too bad, but that O as a cross-shaped rifle scope is a little unnerving. What an … interesting … use of what is supposedly a symbol of peace and love.

  1. Maybe it’s also so they could read the bible more easily in a combat situation, maybe that explains ‘nam

  2. that O as a cross-shaped rifle scope is a little unnerving.

    If Jesus had gone after the money-changers in that temple, they’d have dropped his ass with one shot.

  3. What an … interesting … use of what is supposedly a symbol of peace and love. 

    I think peace and love are anathema to these types. I’m only surprised we’re just now hearing about a camouflage-cover Bible.

  4. They’re not proper servants of our Lord. Every one knows that God uses the King James Version- all the best fundies say so.

    Using a high powered rifle on a herbivore from 300 yards away is real sport. Wow, gotta watch Bambi, he might have an uzi.

  5. This reminds me of a stand-up routine by Blake Clark.  He’s talking about his brother, who is an avid hunter but not too bright.  Blake sees his brother’s wallet, which is camouflaged.

    Blake:
    “Why the hell do you need a camouflage wallet?”

    Brother(quite serious):
    “Because I hunt.”

    Blake:
    “You drop that fuckin’ thing in the woods, and you’ll do some hunting!

  6. Even more than that-there’s a blue camo version for boys and pink camo for girls. ‘Cuz, y’know, if girls aren’t surrounded by pink and drilled with feminine role models 24/7 they’ll turn into hippie lesbos or something.

    Man, I hate pink.

  7. Man, I hate pink

    Me too, I don’t understand why women like it, perhaps they see colours differently (like my red could be their blue, etc). Even on the same gender side you don’t know what colours others see, or perhaps what things smell and taste like to them
