    Keith Richards: 'The bible is boring'

    Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has said that he doesn't like the Bible because it's boring.

    The veteran rocker revealed that he regularly reads the religious text to try to understand why people find it "fascinating".

    He told Sun Media: "I read the Bible sometimes but it bores me to death. I just want to know what other people find so b****y fascinating.

    "Why are they all hung up on all that, 'In the beginning' stuff? Ah, well. At least life is stable. It has said the same thing since I was a kid."

    Richards was speaking at a promotional event for Martin Scorsese's new documentary about the legendary rock 'n' roll band Shine A Light

    Well it's nowhere near as exciting as his drug trips, I'm sure.

    I've always though Old Testament was way more entertaining than the New Testament.

    I got pretty bored during the 'begat' parts. Seriously I don't read the bible to find out who's screwing who...that's what GR's for!

    Default A comedy tonight!

    I dunno - the Passion Play has everything: a treacherous friend, a band of nincompoop followers, corrupt politicians (Pilate free's the murderer Barabbas - oddly meaning 'Son of Abraham' - think Abraham and Issac on the moutiian top as the literary 'foreshadowing' - even though he knows Jesus is an innocent. He doesn't want trouble. Herod, on the other hand, wants a command performance.), prostitutes with hearts of gold, religious hypocrites, guilty tax collectors and other minor civil servant types ( even a role for danny DeVito as the man who climbed the tree!), and to top it all off an innocent but outspoken victim with a knack for ticking people off (shades of the late John Lennon there??).

    Every good play has a touring road show!


    In the middle ages they even wrote in a buffoon & vulgar jester - Grobianus -for good measure. Though the church banned Grobianus from Passion Play appearances, he later some how managed to become one of the church's many fictitious saints. Perhaps it was in recognition of an over site in the original draft?? I've never read anything else so true to life. Judas betrayal with a kiss, why it's treachery for treachery's sake that Shakespeare couldn't have dreamed up on his best day. It is worthy of TV's Survivor!

    (Incidentally, fellow British Rocker Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull borrwoed pretty heavily on Biblical themes, back in his Aqualung days.)

    The Divine Drama is the human comedy??

    Playgoers, I bid you welcome. The Theatre is a temple, and we are here to worship
    the gods of comedy and tragedy. Tonight, I am pleased to announce a comedy. We shall
    employ every device we know in our desire to divert you.

    Something peculiar,
    Something for everyone:

    Nothing with kings, nothing with crowns;

    Old situations,
    New complications,
    Nothing portentous or polite;
    Tragedy tomorrow,
    Comedy tonight!

    Something convulsive,
    Something repulsive,
    Something for everyone:
    A comedy tonight!

    Something aesthetic,
    Something frenetic,
    Something for everyone:
    A comedy tonight!

    Nothing with gods, nothing with fate;
    Weighty affairs will just have to wait!

    Nothing that's formal,
    Nothing that's normal,
    No recitations to recite;
    Open up the curtain:
    Comedy Tonight!

    And a happy ending, of course!
    Goodness and badness,
    Panic is madness--
    This time it all turns out all right!
    Tragedy tomorrow,
    Comedy tonight!

    It all takes place on a street in Rome, around and about these three houses.
    First, the house of Erronius, a befuddled old man abroad now in search of his children,
    stolen in infancy by pirates. Second, the house of Lycus, a buyer and seller of the
    flesh of beautiful women. That's for those of you ho have absolutely no interest
    in pirates. And finally, the house of Senex, who lives here with his wife and son.
    Also in this house lives Pseudolus is probably my favorite character in the piece.
    A role of enormous variety and nuance, and played by an actor of such . . . well,
    let me put it this way . . . I play the part.

    Anything you ask for -
    Comedy Tonight!

    I think the Bible is an amazing piece of literature. It has everything!

    Greek Mythology is way more interesting to read IMO. The early Christians didn't create fables to match that.

    Magna Carta is pretty boring, too, but its a bit important, don't you think?
