Newsweek’s Bible-bashing ‘cafeteria Christians’ cover story causes Twitter spat

Newsweek didn’t see a thing coming when it got blowback from a recent attack on Christians.

In the magazine’s latest cover story, “The Bible: So Misunderstood it’s a Sin,” best-selling author Kurt Eichenwald referred to those who read and follow biblical scriptures as “God’s frauds, cafeteria Christians who pick and choose which Bible verses they heed with less care than they exercise in selecting side orders for lunch.”

Needless to say, the description didn’t set well with RedState founder Erick Erickson, who shared a stinging rebuke of Eichenwald’s anti-Christian sentiment on Fox News .

“I find it mildly ironic that a man whose magazine is no longer available in print form, only online, has the nerve to criticize the most widely published book in history,” Erickson said.

The comment sparked a Twitter exchange between Erickson and Eichenwald. Follow the fun via The Right Scoop:
