    Good for them. I wish they would be as selective about some of the other materials they sell.

    Interesting, absurd, head scratching - why did we need a pink bible to say we are against breast cancer? Isn't that already obvious?

    Smacks of secondary separation, which considering the fundamentalist bent of the SBC, doesn't surprise me. Since criminals use bullets too are they going to recall the hunters bible who also use bullets? Weird

    Perhaps if we just made text and study bibles and got away from the niche bibles we wouldn't have problems like this? Just saying.

    Now the SBC is against women, gays, muslims, Democrats and the fight against breast cancer. Whoever is running their PR department needs to be fired:laugh:

    You apparently missed the part where a portion of the sale of this bible funds abortions.

    You are right. To be quite honest, the SBC really sucks sometimes.

    There's also a huge problem with all this personalized Bible crap. The Bible is the Bible. I don't need a music teacher's Bible or a sex addicts Bible or a Apricot Miniature Poodle's Bible.

    Just give me a Bible in a modern translation.

    Hmmm...we've gone from "an organization which has local affiliates that may have ties to PP" to "this bible funds abortions."

    That's quite a leap.

    I'm not sure that is what the article said. I think it was couched in terms of "might" or "may". Looked like the money was going to the Cancer Foundation and the connection was on a local level. Not sure I would have jumped off the cliff on this one, but then that wouldn't be the SBC way. Ready, fire, aim!

    For the record, I am against breast cancer even though I have a black bible.

    I looked at this Bible for a family member battling breast cancer, and may decide to get her one.

    It is NOT just a pink Bible. It has some good stuff devotionally for women battling cancer.

    And good grief--considering some of the garbage lifeway has sold in the past this is just embarrassing.

    OK, I agree, let's take the name Southern Baptist off the sign out front and just be something like riverside or mountainview or whisperingwinds church.

    That way no one knows the fruits from the nuts.

    Yeah, LifeWay sells some of the most worthless crap and they neglect to sell some of the best (like the TNIV).

    This is one of those things you would think they would have kept. It's not like it says "I heart boobies" or something.
