When they came to the New Testament, Ellie’s agitation increased. Matthew and Luke traced the ancestral line of Jesus back to King David. But for Matthew there were twenty-eight generations between David and Jesus; for Luke forty-three. There were almost no names common to the two lists. How could both Matthew and Luke be the Word of God?

She understood that cowardice might occur in the real world - that sons might deceive and defraud an aged father, that a man might give craven consent to the seduction of his wife by the King, or even encourage the rape of his daughters. But in this holy book there was not a word of protest against such outrages. Instead, it seemed, the crimes were approved, even praised.

And Man said, Let us make God in our image, after our likeness, and let him, not her, have dominion and total dictatorship over all the men and women of the world, and let him give us justification for murder, sexism, slavery, racism, homophobia, violence, and let him tell us to be fruitful so that we have a reason to have loads of sex, and let us write a storybook about him and all the things he’s done, and let us make a religion with a strict hierarchy so that we can make money, and let us indoctrinate our children with the teachings of the storybook, and let us denounce all logic and science so that people don’t leave our religion and we don’t lose our power and money, and let us force our story book teachings onto other people with violence so that we may make money and power.

So I’ve started reading the Holy Bible. (via ngeetee)

Don’t forget to mention the assimilation process when Christian missionaries met with Celtic tribes and others and included some of the heathen traditions, so they would join Christianity.

Jesus was a Middle-Eastern Jewish man who advocated for the seperation of church and state, pacifism, free healthcare, and reform. Frankly, I’m surprised he’s so popular among conservatives.

He also hung out with prostitutes and prisoners, immigrated illegally, didn’t speak English, frowned upon laissez faire capitalism, and advocated love and acceptance for all. Oh and he wore what by modern standards we’d pretty much call dresses and Berkenstocks.

Yeah, Jesus was awesome.
