The tax code and the Bible

Of only one other book can it be said ... that great minds have devoted countless hours to the scrutiny and learned exegesis of every passage; that differing interpretations of the text have given rise to some of humanity's most epic struggles; and that, while millions mine it for valuable insights and inspiration, those who claim to live by the book and follow its precepts probably far outnumber those who actually do so.
--Mark Iwry, senior advisor to the Treasury secretary, on the similarity between the tax code and the Bible
