Chop off your hand. Stab out your eye. There, you're better off.

Have you noticed how some things in the Bible might be too sadistic to blurt out to children? Me too...

Chop off your hand. Stab out your eye. There, you're better off.

Mother suggests we read from the Bible, in her reproaching manner, kind of like we are so sinful for not reading from the Bible more.

I tell her "No, rather suggest we read from the Bible, instead of having such a reproaching attitude!". Father agrees.

Anyway, we read from the Bible.

Oh good Lord. What crap again. It's the part where it says "If your left hand makes you stumble, chop it off", and "if your right eye makes you stumble, stab it out and throw it away from you".

Seriously, and there are children at the table too!!!

I don't mind if we read from the Bible, but seriously, such sadistic crap?

"I just want to say to the children and to everybody," I chip in, "Do NOT actually blind yourself or chop off your limbs! We're just reading from Sadist Tales right now. Nothing is to be practially followed".

I don't think the religious lot appreciate my being practical. At the same time, they have nothing to argue with. The Bible is so sadistic.

I wonder how long before mankind outgrows religion. Probably not soon. I myself don't care much for it, yet I still love to keep its traditions like get together for Christmas and decorate with lights and trees and everything purdey. How much more would actual religious people stick it out.
