God Considers Smiting Copyright Pirates
God is considering his options for action against Bible pirates. "God did not rule out smiting as a final measure against those who share his most famous work, the Bible, on the Internet," wrote Kristian Werner of BBspot Technology News.
Citing misuse of His word, misquotation, and putting hardworking Bible printers out of work, God said he would now start hunting Bible pirating around the globe. "I have to defend both my world-famous brand — the Bible and its distinctive likenesses — and the livelihood of those who create and distribute legal copies of it. Sure, they live not by bread alone, but website hits — someone else's website mind you — don't pay the bills for these folks."
