Yay or Nay: A Bible Verse In A Non-Religious Magazine
By LambAround on March 23, 2010
I posted a rant a while back on my blog (Woman's Day Magazine Irks Me). For the record, I'm not some crazy devil-worshiper who gets offended easily and tries to censor every little thing. I just don't feel that it's appropriate for a non-religious magazine that intends to appeal to all women to have a bible verse as a feature in every issue. An inspirational quote? Sure! An article where a woman talks about her faith? No problem! But an actual bible verse that says to praise God? Errr...it seems a bit out of place amidst the recipes and life tips.
You want to know how to tick off a lot of women really fast? Mention your beef with Woman's Day Magazine on the Woman's Day Message board! Here is a sample of the feedback I received:
This ended up being much more of a big deal to people than I'd expected. Am I right to think that the bible verse is out of place in this particular magazine or should the bible verse stay? What's your opinion?
And, for the 2nd half of the above post (irrelevant to this BlogHer post but relevant to my main blog), please visit me at LambAround. Thanks!
