Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Liberal Elites Want to Ban the Bible

want truth read bible-001

“The Bible is a book of hate speech. It is bigoted, racist, intolerant and reactionary. It brings about division, hatred and exclusion. In our modern progressive society, we simply cannot allow this hate speech to be freely available. In the interests of a loving, harmonious and peaceful society, it must be banned now.”

No one actually said that — I just wrote it now. But a lot of people are thinking exactly this way, including many of our bigwigs, opinion makers, and elites. They really do hate the Bible – because they really do hate the God of the Bible – and if some of them had their way, they certainly would have it banned.

    “No one actually said this, I just made it up because I wanted to get you Christians all riled up thinking the bogeyman liberals are out to get you.”

    Isn’t it usually fundamentalist religious people who are into book banning?

    Why ban the bible, when actually reading it is one of the best ways to promote atheism?

    Free speech necessarily involves hatred being touted as love. The Bible is used to preach a love that is based first on recognizing your own filth as a human being, then giving up and asking a fantasy to rule your helplessness.
    Without Christians all over the country showing us the bizarre carnival contortions of this ‘love’, how it is used to hate folks with other skin colors than lily white and to be disgusted with those who are not exactly heterosexual, to lambaste styles of dress and speech and pretty well everything under the dear sun, then might we more easily lose track of sensible, science-based knowledge and learning? The Bible serves Liberals in this way, as a dangerous-curve-ahead road sign and thereby does good in the world. Why would Liberals want to ban such a prime basis for atheism?
    I certainly would resist any attempt to ban books just as I resist preventing rabid preachers like Steve Anderson from preaching. They spew their hatred and the sick are attracted to them: Together in their church, they are one of the best tools available to me to show the danger of extremism among us, to assist in the demise of the virus, evangelical belief.

    If the Bible hadn’t been available for me to read for myself, I might still believe in the same fantasies to which folks like Mr. Muehlenberg devote their lives.

    Ban the Bible? No way. Reading the Bible is the quickest route to atheism. Why would we ban our best tool? Besides most Christians don’t read it any way.

    Except to call for banning the Bible, Robert Ingersoll actually *did* say something very similar once: http://www.bobfelton.com/?p=9647.

    This and more is absolutely true, yet no liberal worthy of the name would call for the Bible to be banned. We believe in freedom of speech. Historically it’s been the religionists and conservatives who banned (and burned) books.
