Week 21 - "Crazy Bible Rules that Christians like to Ignore."

This week is one topic I've been wanting to do for a while. Christians live their lives according to this one little book written over 5000 years ago, yet many of them fail to understand what exactly it is they follow. And many more Christians do know, and choose to cherry pick the rules or verses they like more and fit better with the lives they personally want to live. It's quite detestable if you think about it, especially considering Christians love to preach to everyone they can about how the "Bible is the infallible word of their God, wholly and absolutely true to the last word" yet when faced with a despicable verse (for today's standards) they say it's either out dated or meant as a metaphor, not to be taken literally. Which is it? Is the book in it's entirety the word of the God of the Heavens, or is it partly law and partly suggestive history? If it's only suggestive, then what makes it the end-all-be-all word of God? Not much.

It would take literally so long to go through each and every crazy rule found in the bible, I couldn't possibly catch them all. I'll do my best by listing the ones that come to mind. In the end I hope you can keep an objective enough point of view to understand why most non-Christians find this book to be a disgusting piece of fiction, and the last place anyone would look for moral guidance (another thing most, if not all, Christians preach about where they get their moral guidance from - what a joke).

That includes the Pastors at your church, all the staff under him. Firefighters, police officers, ambulance workers, doctors, and anyone else in a life-saving profession are all in violation of this rule according to your Bible too.
