Whatever your views of the Bible might be, you should first ask yourself why you have such an insulting and antipathetic view of it
Because apparently I've read it and you haven't. You want to get into the real nasty stuff about the Bible, eh? How about killing a rape victim because she did not cry out loud enough, or commanding the raper to marry her? (Deuteronomy) How about death to all homosexuals, followers of other religions, nonbelievers, women who are not virgins on their wedding night, people who disrespect their parents, people who work on the Sabbath? (Leviticus, Exodus, 2 Chronicles, Deuteronomy) You cool with slavery, as god is? (Leviticus, Exodus, Ephesians, Luke)
God is responsible for the death of millions in the Bible. Pretty much every other page in the OT he is murdering off entire tribes of people. On the other hand, Satan only killed 10 people in the Bible (Job's family)...and that's only because god allowed him to as part of a sick bet!!
Ugh, all these cliched questions show me how uneducated people are.
What is "antipathetic"? lol
People should not so hastily dismiss it, if not simply for the fact that yet for this book my true nature (as well as those like me) as that of a wolf would put all around me in grave danger at my simplest leisure.
Wot? This makes no sense...
