Why do seemingly otherwise intelligent people think the Bible is supposed to be read "entirely literally"?

An author named Rachel Evans decided to take what the Bible says about female behavior literally for a year, and so found herself calling her husband "Master" and other crazy shenanigans you can read about in her book: "A Year of Biblical Womanhood"

It would be one thing if she read the Bible holistically, or with some understanding that there are different types of texts in the Bible.  But, no, she reads it like a scientific textbook, extracting exact prescriptions for her behavior for the course of a year.  And then she wrote her book.

We live in a crazy world where things worthy of no attention receive a superabundance of it.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Cheers!
