But what you are describing is what liberals have done with pretty much
everything including the constitution, history, truth, 2nd amendment,
separation of church and state, and the Bible. Liberals don't seem to
believe in victims rights, only the criminals rights, they take what is good
and call it evil, and take what is evil and call it good. The Bible isn't
difficult to understand for the most part unless you apply liberal thinking.
But to a liberal the story of Jack and Jill is about environmental damage
caused to the hill from two kids tumbling down it, it's really screwed up
