    I think that based upon the structural base of politics in America, Freemasonry, laws and other codes that are tied up with and in the bible, that the bible has outlived its so called moral standing it supposedly at one time held.

    Everyone here is able to snatch some form of discrimination or bias out of the bible as a means for discontinuing its use. Some will speak about how it was used to support and justify the enslavement of our people. Some will mention its anti women's agenda or the racism and outright lies and impossibilities written in there.

    So what's the point? The point is...do you think that religion or religious books should have less of a social sway or pull on society than it does? If so, why? If not, why not?

    That is unlikely to happen since the ruling elite wants it that way, the Christian/ Mohammedan religions leaves these minds open for suggestion, meaning that reality is secondary to what you can have them believe. In reality they do not practice any religion but in fact continually study and review their "holy" books that they can recite any part of at a moments notice. there's more but I'll stop here.

    The Bible has not outlived its relevance, but the Western Christian mis/interpretation of its Myths and Histories is indeed outmoded and often misused.
