Rolling Stone rejects Bible ad

What a shock! The magazine that lives off and therefore promotes the hedonistic lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll has rejected an advertisement for a new young people’s Bible published by Zondervan. It’s a humorous story, because both sides stumble all over each other trying to justify their position. An example is that the magazine has only an “unwritten” policy against advertisements with a religious message.

The problem is the tag line: “Timeless truth; Today’s language.”

Zondervan said they’d redo the slogan, but the magazine said, “No thanks.” Is anybody really surprised?

The best line in the USA Today report comes from a Zondervan spokesman: “Rolling Stone was a perfect fit for the group we want to reach.”

Who knew?
