Parents get outraged at things targeted at young kids like Bratz dolls and Toy Guns but....
The bible is probably the most violent, oppressive and sexist book ever written and portrays a supposedly all loving being as a petty tyrant. Why would you want your kids learning about that? I'm completely serious, this isn't a "let's bash the Christians" troll post. Any of you who know the bible, in any amount, know exactly what I'm talking about. Stories of rape( then the rapist has to marry the girl ), murders of children for misbehaving ( being mauled by bears ), mass extinction of entire cities for not obeying god. How can anyone think that's ok to teach kids. What proves my point even more is the fact that there are children's bibles and books that conveniently leave all the bad stuff out. Why? If the bible and god is so great then why have to edit?
Personally I find it all very disturbing and am so glad I'm raising my kids without all that. If they ask I will tell them how I feel, and I have, and encourage them to read the bible and other religious books and decide for themselves. Hopefully they will be intelligent enough to not fall for religion but whatever they choose is their choice, I'll still support them no matter what.
Oh and I made this post because of something I just read about a parent getting all bent out of shape over some Monster High dolls.
