When my Catholic neighbor read the Bible for the first time she commented on how violent it was. I told her it mellows out in the New Testament until they kill Jesus and Revelations, but I don't think her Catholic Bible has Revelations in it. I think most Chinese are Buddhist and I can see were it might upsetting to their sensibilities.

Why? The bible is indecent for children. It's smut. From the other thread: Ezekiel 23: 14-20 14 "But she carried her prostitution still further. She saw men portrayed on a wall, figures of Chaldeans portrayed in red, 15 with belts around their waists and flowing turbans on their heads; all of them looked like Babylonian chariot officers, natives of Chaldea. 16 As soon as she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea. 17 Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from ... [More]

"..Genitals were like those of donkeys...." can you imagine the pope say something like this in front of families. Seriously i cant believe this is the word of Jesus himself?! hmm maybe is not what jesus said but rather his close companions own word? or is it because of mistranslation? tsk im not a religious person, anyone care to explain this ? There are a lot of quotes in the bible attributed to Jesus, when in reality they are actually accounts of what someone else was saying. I think the issue is not with who said what, but that there are these types of accounts in the bible at all. Even th... [More]

I think the issue is not with who said what, but that there are these types of accounts in the bible at all. so its like Jesus say - X hear it and say - Y hear it and say - Z hear it and wrote it ... umm am i right?

so its like Jesus say - X hear it and say - Y hear it and say - Z hear it and wrote it ... umm am i right? More along the lines of, "Hey Liz, did you hear Suzan say that she heard that Mike said all gays should be shot?" If that was written down, not thoroughly read and then taken out of context you could easily twist it and say, "Well, I read that Suzan said all gays should be shot." Well, technically she did say those words but only because she was recounting what Mike said. So, then you'd have all the homosexuals and gay rights activists coming down on poor Suzan and she was only recounting... [More]

Maybe we should re-classify the common Dictionary too!! It has all 'nasty' words and definitions/deions in text too! -Note Sarcasm... Good one. People nowadays are so petty and focused on things that aren't even a serious issue. Have you ever heard of a child sneaking to read the Bible when nobody is looking so they can pleasure themselves? No. This is immature tit-for-tat. With this logic, a huge chunk of history should be censored and removed from history books. Pearl Harbor, 9/11, the Clinton BJ with dress and stains and all, friendly-fire deaths in middle east. There should be NO tv, NO mu... [More]

Heres a new thought. Try teaching children the truth about the world, instead of hiding it as long as humanly possible. This problem transcends the bible. Teach them while they are young. That is the best precaution, and the best contraceptive.
