Gandalf Defacing the Bible? Say it ain’t So

In an interview with”Details” magazine, actor Ian McKellen admitted to ripping pages out of the Bible whenever he gets a chance (link).

Details: Is it true that when you stay at hotels you tear out the Bible page that condemns homosexuality?

Ian McKellen: I do, absolutely. I’m not proudly defacing the book, but it’s a choice between removing that page and throwing away the whole Bible. And I’m not really the first: I got delivered a package of 40 of those pages — Leviticus 18:22 — that had been torn out by a married couple I know. They put them on a bit of string so that I could hang it up in the bathroom.

I would say that Scripture must be piercing his heart if he feels the need to rip out pages from the Bible to feel at ease. It cut him first before he responded in like-manner. He can cut up the Bible all he wants, but it is alive and active and not subdued by such rebellious folly.
