RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
I don't think that this requires incredibly flexible morals. Take the job.
For the mortgage.

Take the job - you need to support your family.

On a moral scale, it's not like you're taking a job as a guard in a death camp.

Take that job!
Global economics ensures you are working just a few clicks away from
  • child labour
  • manufacturers of weapons of mass destruction
  • support groups of dictators
  • deforestation company’s
anyway.
So those bible's would be the least of my concern.

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
Maybe you could sneak some extra pages in or remove certain passages.

If nothing else, even if religion were to some day disappear, the Bible is part of our culture. There are hundreds of literary references and Biblical allusions in the English language that would make no sense if you didn't have a Bible around. Heck, Chas even said, "Gird up your loins" to someone the other day. Big Grin

And I said it knowingly.Big Grin

To be considered literate in Western culture, one has to have some familiarity with the Bible. There are so many references in our common speech and in literature that without some knowledge, you just won't really get it.

The rain it falls upon the just
and on the unjust fella.
But mostly on the just because
the unjust has the just's umbrella.

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
That ain't no moral dilemma. Try being a hippie working for 25 years in a research lab world famous for its contributions to advancements in munitions and armor. Take the job.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
I have a great job for an excellent company. I am one of the top sales people in the organization and always receive high praise from management. I work out of my house but go to the headquarters six times a year for sales meetings. The company is very christian so before every sales meeting a prayer is said. Guess what I do. Thats right, I fold my hands, bow my head, close my eyes and praise Jesus. Does it bother me. Hell no. We could be thanking Winnie the Pooh and I would do the same thing. I'm not messing with a good thing.

Take the damn job.

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
I don't see this as a moral dilemma, I think you should take into consideration your needs first, you need money, and if that job gives you money I don't see the problem, besides, you are doing nothing illegal, its a job, you want to bring bread to your house, then you should take the job.

And if you feel you have to pretend you are a christian, its ok, you can always avoid talking about religion with your co-workers.

Don't torment yourself over something so trivial as working on a bible print shop, you need money after all, I think its the most practical thing you can do.

Peace.

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
It would be silly not to take the job.
The Bible reflects history and humanity's search for spiritual meaning.

This book contains elements of flawed human thought as well as some interesting and confronting stuff.Exclamation

RE: Help! I have a moral dilemma.
Take the job while you keep looking. The compilation of books, cobbled together into a canon, by a non-unanimous vote, (otherwise known as the Bible), translated and mistranslated, into hundreds of editions and versions, MUCH later slapped with a Gnostic concept, ("the word"), is just a bunch of HUMAN writings. Of ITSELF, it is neither good, nor evil. The fact that SOME people choose to take it out of context, and know NOTHING about it's original context or mythological intent, (and take literally things which were never meant to be understood that way), is not your problem.
