← UPDATED: Why I want all our children to read the King James Bible

"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived."

~ Isaac Asimov born: 1920-01-02 died: 1992-03-06 at age:72

I have have collected hundreds revolting verses from the bible. It makes no sense that anyone could subscribe to Christianity if they knew they were in there. I think the excuse might be something like the way Genghis Khan was tolerated. He's the king. He can squash you, so shut up and pretend to approve and love.

If there were a way to get Christians to read their bible cover to cover, they would vomit in shame and renounce it. My high school English teacher tried to get them to read it by saying you could not otherwise understand English literature. So many allusions reference it.

For a sample of what I am talking about see the Bible Study Guide
