From World News Daily Report:
Atmore, Alabama | When the prison staff asked 33-year Jeremy Morris if he wanted anything special for his last meal, he answered “I just want a Bible”.
The prison guards of the William C. Holman Correctional Facility thought he wanted to pray and repent, so they gave him an old copy of the King James Bible.
Against all expectations, the condemned murderer began tearing up the holy book and eating it.
It took hours of chewing and swallowing small pieces of paper, but Mr Morris ate the totality of the 1200-page book, including the cover.
Walter Henri, the prison guard who handed him the old and worn out Bible, says the inmate seemed to “savor every bite”.Holman Prison director, Frank Davis, says the staff decided to let the prisoner eat the Bible because it didn’t violate the establishment’s “last meal policy”.
Amazing. I wanted this to be true. If I’m ever on Death Row, that’s my last meal. No salt or pepper, just the wretched vellum containing the biggest lie ever told for 2000 years.
But my Spidey sense was a tingling so I looked into it a little further. What did Snopes say?
It’s true in the same way as Trump’s saying he’s not going to touch Medicare and Social Security. Well dang. Maybe I’ll settle for a face tat instead.
