  1. For some reason this makes me think of immaculate conception. If Jesus existed then his mom would have been motivated to make up a story about how she got pregnant. Or Joseph, maybe, if he was a good guy and didn’t want his friends to judge him for not beating her.

  2. That was great. Now tell the story how Abraham passed his wife Sarah off as his sister so the Pharaoh wouldn’t kill him, allowing the Pharaoh to have his way with his wife. Genesis 12:11-20 Better that she get f—ed than he.

    And then I want to hear the one where Lot was so drunk he didn’t even know his own daughters were having their way with him. Having been heavily inebriated myself, I’ve often wondered how the old man was able to even get it up. And then I remember it’s a book of fairy tales.

  3. I’ve frequently thought about the Mary thing. Anyone with sense knows her son was not the so. Of god and I’ve always thought she must have cheated on Joseph or been raped. I must say her story is fantastic when you think about it, how many people with critical thinking facilities existed in biblical times? Hmm, this girl is pregnant, she says her son is the son of god and she’s still a virgin……naturally it must be true. Who would lie about such a thing?

  4. I can’t imagine the look at my 3-year-old daughter’s face if I try to tell her something like this crap! This story has always boggled me and I never understood people who defended the bible and such horrible immoral stories.

    If God is omnipotent omniscient and all this omnicrap, couldn’t he use a better story to strike our morals and give us the message directly to our hearts? Either someone has always to die or something wrong happens like rape, injustice, death, illness, bla bla bla…

  6. Hilarious! I really need to re-explore the Bible. Obviously I missed out on key parts that explain how the clever stories and guidance in the Bible have helped us build a solid framework of sensible morality. Maybe next time a Christian site suggests that raped women shouldn’t be allowed access to abortion, I’ll suggest we follow the guidance here and cut them up into 12 pieces.

  7. As a kid, my father would read from the bible, just as you present it. I never understood why occasionally he would start reading, stutter, mumble and then skip to safer and well known story of lost sons or something! One day I must read that book from cover to cover – it sounds like a great read! Come to think of it, and VioletWisp will like this, I don’t think Christians actually encourage their kids to read the bible – they are always read to…

    • Depends on the church. Some like John said, tell the faithful not to bother because they won’t understand it anyway. Others, like most protestant churches, encourage bible reading with the proviso that when a passage is incomprehensible, one should seek the help of an elder/pastor/wiseman to understand it. Dog forbid we should think for ourselves.

  8. lol! I work with the developmentally delayed. We often get books donated to our center. A client handed me a book and asked me to read it…I looked and saw it was a book with biblical stories…(of Mary the “sinner” who didn’t have to get stoned) and others like it…I kept flipping through trying to find one…”appropriate” and finally had to make up my own…acting like i was reading… πŸ˜€
    I also remember the first time I tried reading through the bible with my daughter, and found…I just…couldn’t do it. I felt horribly guilty at the time that the stories I grew up with felt so….barbaric….I felt…at the time…a failure for christ…

      The OT is a crazy collection of stories which really shouldn’t be in the hands of anyone outside the Jewish people.

  9. Read that part when I was a kid. I always thought it was quite unfair to the girl… but God apparently thought it was a great idea. I hope the Christians don’t get any ideas from this.
    How do they let kids read this in the first place?

  10. You spurred me to read commentary on Judges and I found this gem

    “We are the homosexual perverts of Gibeah of Benjamin, who are willing to rape a woman to death if we can’t satisfy our utter depravity.

    And through it all we see ourselves as God’s elect. We are so very righteous that we really ought to discipline those depraved people of Gibeah, just because we are so much closer to God that we would never do such a dastardly thing as raping a man’s concubine to death. No, we are much too righteous to do such a sinful thing. We might give our wife to a pervert to save our own worthless necks but we are not that sinful woman caught in the very act of adultery. We are not that lowly Publican, prodigal son, or woman at the well with five husbands and now living with a man who is not her husband. We see ourselves as above all of that. But the fact of the matter is we are all of those sinning people at one time or another in our lives before Christ starts living in us.”

    Yowza.

  11. Kinda makes one wonder if all those millions of religious folk have ever actually read their handbook, doesn’t it?

    FYI: I have read it, the KJV, cover to cover, twice – and parts of it several times – trying to figure out how in the world so many people could actually believe the (mostly) nonsense contained therein.

    What a waste of time that was!

    Many years ago, I gave up trying to understand ’em, and just figured out how to live among ’em and enjoy life as much as possible.

  12. Speaking of immaculate conception, you should google Dede Haislip. She claims to be pregnant with a miracle child (going on 11 months now). People tell her it’s a tumor and beg her to see a doctor, but she’s not having any of that nonsense. Oh BTW, her husband has been cured of homosexuality. Like so many other people in the interwebz, she is either a brilliant troll, or the reason humanity occasionally Darwins itself out of the gene pool by refusing evil sciencey vaccinations.

      • Keep it short and sweet, and tell it like it is. No need to write bloody great long books about it. I also agree with your observation that people really aren’t that clever on the whole and it shows doesn’t it? I have read excerpts from the bible (yes even me, having been staunchly against religion since birth), and to be honest read with an iota of intelligence quite a bit of it is quite sound. It’s understandable in that regard how much of it can be misinterpreted by those who are not so well engaged with their little grey cells. There is also a heck of a lot of crap in this book, and having been fiddled about with by so many through the centuries in order to bend others to their will, well what hope in holy hell does anyone have of getting anything out of it. I shall stick with my copy of ‘The Cat in the Hat’ thanks, signed by yours truly Mr.S.N.Ape πŸ™‚

  13. I can understand why so many people put a LIKE to this one. Or maybe it was supposed to mean DISLIKE.

    I like fairly stories and had many books of them. Read them over and over. But I knew they were fairy stories. I was taught they were fairy stories. I knew the ogre would be defeated over and over again. It was a matter of right from wrong. Even the mythological gods (not the true god) would often get a comeuppance.

    But I read from the Big Book of Bible Stories to my own kids. Fortunately not too much. But I know it was enough. 😦

    No moral of the story to this post. Son soon to marry a RC. Praying there are no little Meme babies. But if there are, I will willingly read the best stories from the BB of BS.
