the logic of the first post was...

The logic of my original post was to show contrary evidence that the bible does IN FACT have many verses showing tyranny and acts of an EXTREMELY barbaric nature.

As to your first point, yes the bible was written by men and it has been used over the millennium to try and justify horrendous acts of violence in the name of god. This goes beyond the bible into almost all religions.

I agree that this website is brings together people of liberty. I just hope to show that the bible should never be used to justify violence and that people should consider all the aspect of the "good" book when they subscribe to its teachings.

Sadly most Christians are christian in name only and use the bible to try and justify undeserved righteousness. And even more sad, parts of the church have rigorously attacked the scientific community leading to horrible misinformation and stagnating legitimate scientific research that has cost people their lives. (like telling people not to wear condoms and countless other things over the last 2000 years)

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.
