I know whenever a liberal/lefty makes this type of eye-popping comment about anything Christian, true Christians who vote the Democratic Party along with the far lefties do become incensed, but then at the same time, they publicly act as if it this type of comment was never spoken.
Melissa Harris-Perry is not the only liberal/lefty progressive who feels the bible needs an update. She and others think that way, because they feel that bible content comes only from mere mortal men. The reality is that the bible is God inspired. We cannot change what we do not like about what the bible tells us, even when it goes against prevailing attitudes on such matters as same-sex marriage and abortion rights.
