The Good Book

From our “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” file…

Pastors Mike Foster and Craig Gross of Corona, Calif., were disappointed to learn that their order for Bibles imprinted with their ministry’s slogan had been denied by the American Bible Society.

Seems the large publishing company turned down the two young ministers because they wanted to have WHAT printed on the covers of the New Testament?

A) “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin”
B) “Turn the Other Cheek”
C) “Jesus Was a Jew”
D) “Jesus Loves Porn Stars”

D) Yes, it seems that the two — whose ministry is geared toward anti-pornography efforts — wanted to print their “Jesus Loves Porn Stars” slogan on some 10,000 Bibles they had ordered.

Then again, since their online ministry can be found at, perhaps the request doesn’t seem that strange after all.

Still, the American Bible Society turned down the order, noting that, “the wording is misleading and inappropriate for a New Testament.”
