Response to cbayer (Reply #26)

29. Actually, I've never seen that particular letter...

...but it IS a nice way of pointing out the hypocrisy of most biblical literalists. I remember a similar exchange appearing on the TV show "The West Wing."

And you absolutely can discard any pieces of the holy scripture from any religion and still claim to be an adherent of that religion, but then THAT begs the question of "Why?" Why continue to claim to be of a faith who's tenants are so disagreeable that you've had to discard so many of them?

Now I'm not going to ask you to share your specific reasons as that is your own business, I'm just putting it out there to underscore the confusion that I and others feel when looking at this specific issue.
