I am a child of the Enlightenment. So Enlighten me. How do you edit when Yahweh gives orders or not. Think New Testament gets off the hook. Why didn't Yahweh tell all the male youngsters from Betheleham to get out of town. That would have been a miracle and in your face mocking of the supposed killing of infants by Herod.
Even a superstitious man has certain inalienable rights. He has a right to harbor and indulge his imbecilities as long as he pleases. . . He has a right to argue for them as eloquently as he can, in season and out of season. He has a right to teach them to his children. But certainly he has no right to be protected against the free criticism of those who do not hold them. He has no right to demand that they be treated as sacred. He has no right to preach them without challenge." -H.L. Mencken
