When I was a child I swallowed the Bible
Now I've digested, deliberated and cogitated the Bible
I've absorbed the good bits and ejected the shit
All you need from the Bible is the Golden Rule, be caring, don't hurt anyone.
Don't name call but instead aim to speak in emotionally literate terms. You'll note that the Bible writers never got round to understanding such things because the language of their culture was at a more primitive stage.
