The Bible was a murder weapon. It is potentially today. Today in some places it actually is still a murder weapon. Nobody has the right to put a murder weapon into the community under the guise of tradition and worship.  Kissing it and parading it around the Church and calling it the word of God is like kissing the knife that somebody was stabbed with.

Belief in revelations from God is the real murder weapon. You may speak of murderous revelations from God but the problem is belief in such in the first place. If a revelation can get you to do good it can as easily get you to do harm. It depends on what luck would have it as. It depends on what content this revelation is about. If then your revelation and religion is nice and kind that is nothing to praise. It is luck and it is only chance that it did not lean to the dark side. It is as silly as praising somebody carrying a knife when it is luck that they see it as a mere ornament and not as a weapon. To praise that is to praise the very random chance that could make it something very bad indeed.

It says something about what is inside you.  Religion feeds on the uncaring side of human nature though it may be very deep inside and hidden.  It is there.

Murder in the Bible and rape is never reported in a moral way. In other words, the perpetrators thrive.  The victims do not get justice.  This is not a book that is sincere when it says the killing and violation of women is wrong. Moses got away with having loads of women stoned to death and he must have participated in this directly. God commands the whole community to lift up the stones. Jesus may have engaged in stonings too for there are decades of his life that are a complete blank and he was clear in Matthew 5 that he was against any Jew who watered down the Law for all of it was from God and inviolable so that nobody had the right to take an iota from it.  There was an issue with clerics watering down the Law so Jesus would have had to show his devotion by celebrating stoning if not participating.

Incredibly some treat the Bible as an allegory or code because they want to read what they want to into it.  If you really hate the crimes commanded by a holy book you will not want to hide the truth.  You will not add a new evil, a lie to the evil in the Book.  Liberal Christianity is shamelessly deceitful.  It calls the bad Bible bits good by allegorising them.  It is as if a vicious text can be turned good by doing that. It makes no difference. Whether meant to be taken like any other “history” or not, those who devised the Bible and who decided on what books are part of the Bible had sick twisted minds.  And don't forget Jesus had a list as well for he spoke of what was in the Law and the Prophets.  They are dark fantasisers. And that is what they wanted children exposed to. The Bible as allegory does not the slightest thing to make it more moral. It makes it even worse. There is a difference between a person recording that Jesus really did try to make his followers hate Jewish leaders and one who makes it up as a "nice" story to be turned into imaginative sweet fairy dust. And it is repellent to try to turn evil books into lovely lessons and it is patronising for it’s a few snobs who take it on themselves to “explain” the allegory to the “sheep”. It is elitist and anything but inclusive.  It is smug and self-righteous.
