Didn't know the bible told us anything at all about airplanes....

Btw.... is being a passenger on an airplane makes you a good mother?

I've got a suggestion or two for what that moron can do with the Bible.

And the passenger deck is no place for this jerk. Next time, he gets checked with the baggage.

Somehow religion tends to fry peoples already tinsy tiny brains further. Don't think cockpit+pilot can be found in the Bible...what a complete waste of space.

Ahh Christianity... Keeping women in their place for over two thousand years! How nice!

There was Ezekiel's chariot, but I think that was supposed to have been a UFO or some such.

Why are soooo many Christians mired in the Old Testament? Cite passages from the New Testament ( the reason for your religious faith) or stop calling yourselves Christian already.

Shouldn't these zealots be called BCers...Before Christianity for adhering to pre-Christian biblical content?

because there were so many cockpits back in biblical times.

I didn't know airplanes were mentioned in the bible. I've read it and don't recall any scriptures in regards to flying machines. I'm getting sick and tired of people using their religion and religious texts as justification for their hatred and ignorance.

Typical religious right heroism: anonymously scribble a misogynous note with a bible verse on it, leave it behind and hope they will find it. Why bother with it if its author was afraid to go public.

Outrageous! Maybe that person should just stay at home and read his bible.

I think they forget about the part of "Thou shall not Judge."

I bet this guy knows what airline Jesus preferred...

What a misogynistic IDIOT.

Noted. Thanks for the laughs with this one, Carrie!
Seriously, I've begun to do a lot more laughing than frowning when these things pop up. People get so much more insulted when you just stand there and laugh at them....doubled over with The Giggles.....and since you can't speak because you're laughing so hard, just point at them and keep laughing.

Huge lack of intelligence and probably a good dose of mysogynism. This stuff come from men who have low self esteem and will use any excuse to belittle or restrict another human...especially women. Gotta have someone to feel superior to ya know. Hope he does not have daughters.

(Humble woman should immediately quit her job, bind her feet, get circumcised, and wear burqa and beg her husband (volunarily of course...thank you tea party)to submit to him. ha ha ha over the top? you betcha. Just like the sneaky, cowardly note dropper.

Figures that the flight came out of Calgary LOL that's my origin. Such a ridiculous statement to say that is in the Bible. This guy just wants women to stay at home and have babies - my Dad was kind of like that, you know keep them barefoot and pregnant. Poor Dad, it wasn't until his daughters started working and making pretty good money, that he showed women some respect.
Thanks Carrie.
