    The problem is that they don't read anything else.

      Most people who read the Bible have no idea about the meaning of what they are reading.  They know nothing about history, nothing about literature, nothing about anthropology.  On the other hand, Lincoln was bright enough to read "little else" and came away with an altogether different understanding of the Bible than your ordinary naif.  

      I guess the trick is to be truly brilliant or very well educated by a seriously respectable liberal arts school.
