Do not read the bible

GQ's Citizen of the Year is a black millionaire NFL player who refused to stand during the US National Anthem and instead knelt on the field to protest racism, insulting and alienating millions of NFL fans

"GQ: Men's Fashion, Style, Grooming, Fitness, Lifestyle, News & Politics". GQ used to be known as Gentlemen's Quarterly magazine. It was founded in 1931. GQ also published a list of 21 books "you don't have to read". According to the editors of GQ, among the books you don't have to read is the Bible. According to GQ, "It is repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned."

Also on the GQ list of books you don't have to read is "The Old Man and the Sea" and "The Catcher in the Rye", two of the best books I have ever read ... and over my lifetime I've read thousands. As a book reader, and an author, I am highly insulted. Famous books you don't have to read? Because a bunch of literary elitists at GQ decided which books we ought not bother to read? Are the GQ editors young, and arrogant, with the attention span of a goldfish? Or are they just lefty loony liberal elites, with a lack of literary history?

In addition, GQ has a long history of being non-inclusive, appealing mainly to males. According to current liberal standards, this makes GQ anti-women and politically incorrect. Hmm. Maybe GQ belongs on a a list of the most overrated publications, publications you don't have to read.
