Summary

On using the Bible to reconcile men to hard labour.

Hamish Henderson reminds Charles 'Codlins' Simpson of something he said: "Man wasnae made tae work: it's a biblical fallacy." The Bible says that man will work by the sweat of his brow, but that only applies to a few, and those who quote it from the pulpit take good care it doesn't apply to them.
