The god problem: Malarkey apologizes for lying and then lies

From Publisher’s Lunch (with a curious error — can you spot it?):

Tyndale House announced it will stop selling THE BOY WHO CAME BACK TO HEAVEN by Todd Malarkey and his father, Kevin, after Malarkey recanted his original testimony and repudiated the book’s publication in an open letter to Christian bookstores. “I did not die. I did not go to Heaven…I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough. The Bible is the only source of truth. Anything written by man cannot be infallible.” A spokesperson for Tyndale issued a statement saying “Tyndale has decided to take the book and related ancillary products out of print.”

Notice he’s still saying, “The Bible is the only source of truth.” Even though he says he never read it before. And is confessing to a lie. Although he’s lying again, here.

Kid should go immediately into therapy, do not pass go(d). In fact, the Malarkeys need to go into family therapy.

By the way, William Tyndale — the man this publishing company is named after — is a major hero of mine, one of my beloved heretics.
