You tell me

You tell me? If I post a link to the whole book will you read it like I have? So that you can then tell me that its a story and not everything in the bible is literal?... because I have had this argument a THOUSAND times and it always goes back to this same process.

HERE is how it works with the religious fanatics...
I post up some quotes, then you tell me it's not in context... then I post the whole section of a chapter.... and you then tell me I need to read more and it's still not in context... I then post up the WHOLE BOOK and you attack my character and AGAIN tell me i just don't understand it and i need to read some more. all the while you tell the world it is an easy book to understand.

Sure it's easy to understand... when you don't read it and instead have the priest pick and choose quotes out of it then twists the interpretation to however he sees fit.

also, you didn't answer the question... In what context is it OK to slaughter children?

answer that. you can't and will revert back to the "good" book trying to justify the book and yourself.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
