HELPING BELIEVERS TO KNOW THEIR BIBLE BETTER: PART 2

Here is a suggestion from Malcolm Hutton: National Secular Society Newsletter, 9 January 2009

"One could take action when a bible is presented in hotel or hospital. First of all go prepared with a yellow highlight pen and ask if the bible is yours to keep. Then highlight some of the most damaging verses, such as –

Luke 14:26 – hate your mother and father
Matthew 10:34/36 – he came not for peace but with a sword
Psalm 137:9 – it will make you happy to dash your little ones against a stone
Leviticus 26:29 – eat the flesh of your sons and daughters
Proverbs 28:25 – if you trust the Lord you will put on weight
Matthew 23:9 – don't call a priest, father
Deuteronomy 19:18/19 – Kill anyone who tells a lie
Exodus 35:2 – Kill anyone who works on Sunday
Leviticus 20:27 – Kill all mediums by stoning
Deuteronomy 21:18/21 – Kill a rebellious son by stoning
Leviticus 24:14/16 – Kill anyone who utters a curse by stoning."

Thousands more could be added to this list.

These matters need widespread publicising. . .
. . . and try them on the JHs and Mormons next time they are at the door.

Good for you, Moonbeam.
The godbots need help in finding the parts that their bible teachers ignore.

Hey I had this idea too! I picked up a gideon's bible last time I was in a hotel and was jokingly quizzing my partner on "clean vs. unclean" (Leviticus), and thought putting stickies on those pages would be funny to do.

I'm taking a couple trips this spring, so I'll be sure and do my part. Right now I'm trying to memorize bible verses to be prepared to use them (sarcastically) in situations with my theist friends to make the same point. Those are some good ones to add to my list, thanks. I'm going to copy those down. (EvilBible is a good source.)
