How not to read Scripture

My previous post  quoted Pope Benedict on how to read Scripture properly. If you want to know how not to read Scripture, follow the lead of that great Scripture scholar Donald Rumsfeld:
One passage plucked from the New Testament’s Epistle to the Ephesians instructs believers to “put on the full armor of God.” An excerpt from the Old Testament’s Isaiah directs them to “open the gates that the righteous nation may enter.”
As American soldiers fought in Iraq in 2003, these biblical verses and others reportedly prefaced intelligence reports approved by then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
