A company from Finland that makes toilet paper, Metsa Tissue, prints uplifting quotes on its toilet paper. Inadvertently they printed quotes from the Bible which greatly upset some of the Christian clergy.
Laila Riksaasen Dahl, a bishop from Norway where the offending toilet paper was sold, was very upset. She told a local religious publication, "This is bad taste and shows lack of respect. Bible verses do not belong on a roll of toilet paper." (The very fact that Dahl is a member of the Christian clergy, and a bishop at that, is a direct violation of what the Bible she's foolishly defending teaches. For example, 1 Timothy 2:12 teaches, "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." It's evident that Dahl needs to study her Bible more and to act accordingly by resigning from the Christian clergy.)
There was no intent to show disrespect by printing the Bible verses. However, respect is something to be earned and the Bible does not deserve respect because it has not earned it. Just as it is wrong to let known lies and falsehoods go without confronting them (and warning other people about them) as Thomas Paine made clear when he wrote in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition, "It is an affront to truth to treat falsehood with complaisance", so it is wrong to show respect to people or things that don't deserve it. Two, of many, Biblical examples of why Judaism, Christianity and the Bible don't deserve respect can be tied to this humorous toilet paper case. Ezekiel 4:12 claims that God ordered the Jews to bake their biscuits "with dung that cometh out of man." And Malachi 2:3 claims that God didn't think the Jewish priests were giving him enough glory so he threatened them by saying, " Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces."
Clergywoman Dahl is wrong. She should realize that it is in bad taste and shows lack of respect to God to call the Bible the word of God.
