But the bibles are free and available even to children who, in a sane world, should never be exposed to such a dangerous book. At least kids can’t access porn without parents’ permission, it must be paid for and it can be blocked. The bibles are right there with their ugly content freely available to innocent eyes, and most parents,having never gotten beyond Adam and Eve and the serpent, don’t even know what’s in it.
So true. I wonder how many Christians have actually read the Bible from cover to cover? I wonder how many of them know about the atrocities, bloodshed and cruelty in the Old Testament? Despite all this, the New Testament is even worse because hell is introduced. How many children have been frightened and traumatized by the idea of eternal suffering and pain after death? So, I agree, the Bible isn’t appropriate reading for children.
