Quote# 6594

If you do not think that the Bible is the Word of God and you think that every verse [encouraging destruction of native Middle Easterners] is open to interpretation and that all interpretaions are equally valid, what's the point of reading the Bible? Do you think the Ten Commandments are open to interpretation as well? How about the Golden Rule?

That's actually pretty sensible. If you don't take the words at face value, why bother reading/believing. If you're interpreting everything to mean what you want it to mean, then you've bypassed the need for the book.

What's the point of reading it indeed....

Exactly, like Thou Shall Not Kill, It isn't open to interpretation, it clearly states killing is ok.

treat others as you want to be treated!

Thats a great rule - fuck all to do with religion though and something the "devout" find impossible to uderstand or implement.

Dr. Shrinker

"Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy"

So is the Sabbath day Sunday or Saturday? I guess it depends on how you interpret that part of the ten commandments, doesn't it?
