I'm all for evangelizing the Golden Rule and any other moral values I could consider good.
"For me my morality comes from a study of the Laws of Nature and Science, the Bible and the revealed word of God to men (to me they are the same Laws). If you think deeply about the Laws you support you will find that they too come from a religious belief ..."
But how do you figure that the Bible has historically been relevant in shaping societies, or even Christian's moral values?
As Dawkins has famously argued, not even Christians shape their moral values based on the Bible. For example, how many Christians currently take to heart the following moral values presented in the Bible? - (text in square brackets is a small snippet from my larger post which can be found here - http://www.dailypaul.com/241312/sowing-the-seeds-for-a-peace... ):
[As anyone who has read the old testament knows, God (of peace?) ordered the abduction of women for purpose of sexual enjoyment, and even commands that rapists are to be rewarded by taking the rape victims as their wives.
"The God of the Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9)."
...Many readers who are well researched in politics and the New (old) World Order (NWO), will see the parallels between the above (evil God ruler) frame of mind and that of Freemasonry based secret societies. As we will see below in question and answer item number "7)", it appears Freemasonry has significantly influenced nearly all organized religions, and may in fact be the tactful evil slavery minded crafters of these organized religions.]
Is this really how you wish to shape society?
