There are a few virtuous and true things in the Bible. Yes, we should not covet, lie or kill people. Yet there are also lies and wicked and stupid things in that book too. The world is not flat. The sun does not orbit around us, it is the other way around. In other words, we are not the center of the universe.  At the time these stories were laid down they were all considered to be virtuous and true but ever since then the various parts that have ceased to be relevant or ridiculous or we now see to be immoral due to our more developed sense of morality have become classified as allegory or metaphor or read ‘out of context’ or simply historical documentation devoid of moral import - in fact anything to try to explain away their embarrassing inclusion.  Today the text has become so ‘metaphorical’ that the supernatural claims therein have become entirely discredited and the text can be seen for what it is - a mixture of primitive folk history and fairy tales. Nothing more….

The alleged religion of peace… pure bullshit. They are bigots, misogynists and homophobes. They promote chaos and fear, not peace. They are no better than the KKK or the White Supremacists. They are sick, delusional people that need professional help.
