Urban Dictionary’s Definition Of The Bible Angers Christians
The Urban Dictionary is an online venue that allows users to share descriptions of nearly any phrase of term ever uttered. The internet platform is often used for defining slang terms. The descriptions published on the website are sometimes humorous or offensive, The Blaze notes.
Definitions of the Bible posted on the Urban Dictionary include calling the Christian book a “novel full of murder” and a book filled with corruption. An excerpt from one definition of the Bible posted on the online reference website reads:
“The Bible is probably the best book ever. You can use it as a coaster, hit people with it, look funny and quote it, eat the pages, fie fuel, toilet paper, start a war, and control ‘stoopid’ people of the world.”
Urban Dictionary publishes multiple definitions for terms and phrases. One definition of the Bible posted on the website describes Jesus Christ as a “cosmic Jewish zombie.” Comments and a thread about the Christian holy book appear to encourage readers to burn the book.
One Bible definition which has generated a lot of backlash reads:
“God made, Adam bit, Noah arked, Abraham split, Joseph ruled, Jacob fooled, Bush talked, Moses balked, Pharaoh plagued, people walked, sea divided, tablets guided, Promise landed, Saul freaked, David peeked, prophets warned, Jesus born, God walked, love talked, anger crucified, hope died, Love rose, Spirit flamed, Word spread, God remained.”
Not all of the definitions of the Bible shared on the Urban Dictionary are negative in nature or offensive. The top 20 or so postings appear to be the ones angering people of faith.
