← [Update] How Christian fundamentalists plan to teach genocide to schoolchildren

Due to the rather haphazard way that the Bible is put together, a straight read-through has the Amelekites repeatedly popping up and having to be exterminated over and over again. At one point God, being infinitely wise presumably, says that he will wipe out all remembrance of Amalek from under heaven, and then says make sure that you write that bit down.

As for teaching children that mass murder is justified on religious grounds, these people disgust me.
