How about a little thought experiment?
I’ll read passages from the bible and you tell me if what was read is moral and why.
No, wait. Check it out. It’s all in a 306 page book of bible quotes, authored by Dan Barker, titled “god the most unpleasant character in all fiction.”
It’ll be great. Almost the exact same thing but better. You don’t have to hunt for the truly questionable verses, there all there and categorized. Hundreds of pages of bible verse. You can make an on the spot judgement on each one as you read.
Here’s an idea. Take the book with you next time you meet with church friends. They’ll love it.
Cool, right. Everybody could compare judgements. What fun. Who knew someone could condone slavery or the killing of a cities entire population under certain circumstances. Stuff like that.
I offer these questions for your consideration.
“Why should anyone feel compelled to be subservient to a benevolent benefactor? Put another way, what kind of dick expects to be worshipped for doing what came naturally?” Nationofnope.
