← Bible stories for children - would you do it?

I would ask them if i could read them something more interesting. How about a few chapters from a Goosebumps book? Or maybe a few chapters from The City and the Stars?

I remember seeing a tv infomercial for a childrens dvd of the bible. The commercial shows the young child sitting between his parents and they are smiling as they learn about the lord. I wonder if they cut out all the barbarism and intolerance in the good book. I wonder if they teach their child about hell and tell them how they will suffer if they do not believe every word of this manmade text. Why not indoctrinate your child with Buddhism? At least then they have a shot of growing up as a decent human being.
