Touching The Untouchables #3: Abraham

Oh God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No." Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"

      - Bob Dylan, "Highway 61 Revisited"

 

Abraham was willing to kill his own son because "God told him to" and we're supposed to think kindly of this guy?

 

Hello?! We have a name for it when you hear voices telling you to kill your own kids. It's called schizophrenia!!
