O.K., So Not Everything About Texas Is Bad

Awesome:

In the lobby of the University of Texas at San Antonio’s humanities building, a hand-drawn poster announces, “Free porn: Just trade in your holy books (Bible, Koran, Vedas) for porn.”

A student group at the university called The Atheist Agenda is reviving its Bibles-for-porn program, called “Smut for Smut,” for three days beginning March 1, according to a report from San Antonio’s KENS-TV.

That’s a great trade. I’m sure the porn would get a lot more use than the texts did. The results are better for society, too. I don’t know how you could dispute that religion has caused infinitely more pain and suffering than porn ever could. Like the sponsors say:

“The idea is that religious texts are so appalling,” said Atheist Agenda group member Brian Talker in a 2006 interview with UTSA student publication The Independent. “They are so full of genocide, misogyny and ludicrous ideas that far overshadow any banal common-sense platitudes like loving thy neighbor, that you are better off having porn, which isn’t nearly as smutty.”

Tough to argue with that. I mean, there’s good evidence that access to on-line porn has reduced the number of rapes in this country. The Bible, on the other hand, has this (and more) to say:

If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.
