Liberal Blogger Matt Yglesias, who is moving offices this afternoon, has thrown out a Bible. “Just threw out a Bible. #sinning,” he wrote on Twitter. Yglesias will be contributing regularly to The Atlantic‘s new Atlantic Cities section. He remains a fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. He also blogs for ThinkProgress.
Asked why he trashed the Bible, he told FBDC, “Moving to the second floor, gotta clean everything off my desk by the end of the day.”
We tried to pester him some more — did he tire of his Bible? Does he feel that something bad is going to happen to him? “Yes, scolds, I threw it into the recycling pile. But the bible’s still been thrown out!” he brashly told his followers.
