Stoning the Prophets

Stoning the Prophets

"Stoning the Prophets" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

The official policy was that if a prophet prophesied and it turned out not to be true, they were to be stoned.

The unofficial policy is that if a prophet prophesies and it turns out to be true, they will be stoned.

Because the ones who wrote the laws didn't expect the truth to be turned on themselves.

Speaking truth to power has never been a safe enterprise.
