Cool. If a Catholic gets to run things by their Bible, we get to own slaves again! Very Happy I promise I'll beat them (and my wife/wives) in the proper manner described in the Scriptures. And, naturally, if any of my wives turns out not to be a virgin on our wedding night, I'll kill her in the scripturally prescribed manner. I'll have to look up exactly what that is. It's been a while since I did any reading in that thing.

What the hell. I can buy lottery tickets and the odds aren't that much worse. Especially considering that I don't have to waste hours and hours praying, genuflecting, sitting in a special holy building on Sunday mornings, dressing up and comparing my Sunday best with everybody else's, etc etc. True, the lottery can only offer the slim prospect of buttloads of cash, but... at least I can prove that cash exists...

One of the saddest things is there's no law to prevent these people from breeding. They have children, and proceed to infect their clear young minds with this brain damaging rubbish.
I went to the lengths of sending a letter to my children's school, making it clear that under no circumstances are they to participate in scripture lessons, or religious studies of any kind. I won't allow them to be infected by this sickness. If they happen to decide to follow a denomination later, they'll do it free of childhood brainwashing.

@Patches,
Careful, now...

Matthew 5:22 ESV

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

He has declared that he is not my brother. I will rephrase that by saying that he is being foolish.

So, does the Bible have a message or lesson for mankind?

Right. The priests have shown us that. But the question I am asking Patch involves what the Bible actually says.

BTW, I gave you a mercy thumbs up. I can't understand why folks would vote posts down when they are being given in sincerity.

I'll say thankx, but to be honest votes don't mean anything to me. On a side note it is a good question, I just couldn't help but bring some humor into it. There was an underline reason why I chose to say what I did. It really comes down to interpretation. The bible seems a little on the line of abstract therefore it can be taken to mean a lot of different things. You can see what you want to see in it and ignore what you don't want to see. For me there are reoccurring themes that most seem to ignore. Maybe I focus on it too much? But regardless that is how it comes across to me.
