Bart or his publishers knew that putting the term on the cover would create controversy and controversy sells.
You have an agenda and cherry pick just as much, bro, make excuses, used wierd twisted reasoning to get over and past obvious contradictions (not interpretations, DIRECT contradictions). It's OK, I don't agree with you, I 100% respect your right to worship as you see fit as long as you don't hurt someone else that insn't consenting to it (as in, I belong to the church of spanking, consentual women with nice bottoms welcome ;)), but I do get mildly irritated when people call out people for the very thing they are doing, cherry picking.
P.S. I am not really into spanking. I really meant that if a native american wants to sit in a sweat lodge and smoke peyote as part of his religious experience, fine by me as long as he isn't hurting anyone.
