I recently decided to read the Bible because I have never actually read it through, so I shouldn't have the right to decry Christianity like I do. I made it to Genesis 20 before I just couldn't take it anymore. It's the most offensive text I have ever read. Many of you know my thoughts on Original Sin, which is how Genesis begins... (and if you don't, I can sum it up with a wonderful quote from Ayn Rand)
"To hold, as manís sin, a fact not open to his choice is a mockery of morality. To hold manís nature as his sin is a mockery of nature. To punish him for a crime he committed before he was born is a mockery of justice. To hold him guilty in a matter where no innocence exists is a mockery of reason. To destroy morality, nature, justice and reason by means of a single concept is a feat of evil hardly to be matched. Yet that is the root of your code."
Plus, the beginning of Genesis is basically about God fucking up over and over, which results in him killing everyone.
In Genesis 19, Lot, a man who I remember from Sunday school was praised highly for his holiness and whose life was even saved through divine intervention (I think), invites a huge crowd of angry people to gangrape and sodomize his two virgin daughters. I put the book down.
To Christians and Jews alike I ask: Are you holy enough to invite a mob to rape your virgin daughters in similar circumstances? No? Sinners.
