In particular her AOL featured story regarding the,
“10 Things NEVER to Do on a Cruise.”
And do you know what tops her list in the number one position? NEVER: Touch a Bible!
Her twisted reasoning takes us back to the Norwalk virus outbreak that befell the cruising industry between 2002 and 2007. Ms. Che further cites that one cruise line in particular, “Got serious about debugging their ships… Everything touched by hands that might have carried the virus—from Bibles to poker chips, railings to remote controls—had to be sanitized to a temperature of 170 degrees or thrown out.”
Now I am not naive Cathy, I know you were just trying to draw attention to your article, but really, “Don’t Touch the Bible They Leave In Your Cabin…It Puts You at Risk,” Seriously? This is way beyond any alarmists threshold. It certainly gives me pause why you posed your fright ploy towards Christians and not gamblers or cable viewers. You should know true believers are not that easily swayed and that fear Cathy is the direct opposite of faith. Besides that, we generally bring our own Bibles when we travel.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear,
but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
