← Bible stories for children - would you do it?

Read the story, it is after all exactly that, just a story, make believe. I, like I'm sure many here, having been given the usual wooly biblical fare at Sunday school, turned out in the knowledge that Jonah never lived in a big fish, or the biggest boat that Noah could possibly build, still wouldn't do the job the bible says it could. It's all bollocks, like Iggle Piggle, Santa, the Grinch and Harvey, kids will grow out of it with education or they won't, it isn't biblical fairy tales that makes religionuts...it takes a bit more than a few exotic yarns. It's all the scary shit that is force fed that usually does it and I would flatly refuse to relay that to any youngsters.
