Bible as Hate Literature

Let’s say someone wrote a book against Baptists. It taught you how to smash their windows without getting caught. It showed you how to burn down their homes and businesses in such a way the fire would be so intense there would be nothing left and no one could escape. I think a few people might complain. The government might ban this book.

However, the churches have published perhaps a billion copies of a book, the bible, that calls for stoning suspected homosexuals to death, without trial, by mob. The bible is nearly always the justification for bashings and murders of homosexuals by strangers. Almost nobody complains. Nobody takes seriously a request to remove the offending passages or to mark them as not-officially endorsed. This bad behaviour is entrenched tradition.
