Re: Conservapedia - Most Accurate Shite On The Web*

"The eye of a needle" is part of a saying of Jesus recorded in the synoptic gospels: “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Go...

That website says there's 1 or fewer of me, but I know there's at least two. (Me, and some guy in New York who I found the Facebook page of.)
