He answered the actual question in saying that he believes the bible to be authoritative but then spins off into a two and a half minute lecture on protecting the earth. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the enviroment but lets stick to the subject at hand. The bible to me is a wonderful thing but not meant to be taken literally. The bible was written by human hands and therefore inherently flawed. It just seems that through countless versions and translations that there is way to much room for error. Also keep in mind that history, tax laws, and religion are all written by the victors of any struggle. Is this the absolute truth or one version of it?
