Jose Saramago blasts Bible over “bad morals”

Considering the Bible is a couple of thousand years old, you just can’t keep it out of the news these days. Following the lunatic Bible burning in North Carolina and R Crumb’s tits and arse version of Genesis, now we have Jose Saramago, the Nobel Prize-winning author of Blindness, slamming the Bible as a “handbook of bad morals”.

“The Bible is a manual of bad morals (which) has a powerful influence on our culture and even our way of life. Without the Bible, we would be different, and probably better people,” he said.

Saramago has a track record here. In 1992 he wrote The Gospel According to Jesus Christ and detailed Jesus losing his virginity to Mary Magdalene.
