Trashing the Bible

New York Magazine certainly qualifies as mainstream. David Edelstein is its film critic. This is from his current piece:

I'd call it biblical vengeance, but even the Bible isn't this perverse.

It is hard to imagine the "Holy Book" offhandedly being called "perverse" in such a publication thirty years ago, twenty years ago, ten years ago. We are supposed to be living through a religious revival. But look closer and this is the sort of thing you find.

Religious revival or the death spasm of American theocracy? In my optimistic moments I hope it's the latter.
