To many Christians and Jews, the Bible is the unquestioned authority on morality.  Often times you’ll hear believers say that the Bible is a book of morals but they never take the time to actually read it and when you point out the atrocities contained within, they look at you as if you’re the crazy one and say “Well, I… Read more »
