I think it particularly perverse that those who argue that the
only foundation for morality is to be found in their
"literalist" interpretation of the Bible are the very same
people who are so willing to consistently and systematically lie
for the sake of their faith. It seems so obvious that this is
one of the most efficient ways to destroy the moral foundations
of the individual - and those that follow.

Well yes, it's the height of hypocritic hubris to insist that
only the literalist interpretation of the Bible gives a valid
morality and to then violate the commandments of Exodus in order
to defend the private interpretation of Genesis.

By the way, the is not just a rhetorical question, I would like to know what others think.


I am always staggered by this argument. Surely it is not difficult to see that those of us who believe that this life is all that we have would value that life both in ourselves and others extremely highly.

That said I do believe in personal choice over death but it must be personal choice without outside influence.
