← Respected theologian defends genocide and infanticide

Thankfully, most Christians have a natural morality that exceeds their biblical morality. I used to ask believers many times, would you sacrifice your children to God if God commanded you? And most admitted that they could do no such thing.

The bible is not a moral book, and religion is not about morality, it's about control and politics. Christianity has no place or justification in lecturing people on how to behave or what to do. It's an unwelcomed guest in a modern democratic age.
