New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Curses a Fig Tree
18 Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. 19 Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered.
Guys, I think that using the NIV’s interpretation of the script we can put this Westboro Baptist shit to rest now. They just misread their own book. Honest mistake.
Any reasonable person would protest a soldier’s funeral or burn down a fig farm.
