To Christians who say we take Bible verses out of context

When Atheists point out immoral acts in the Bible, you like to say that they are being taken out of context, and the entire passage, or entire book, or the times should be taken into account.

Intersting that you suddenly see shades of gray when the Bible is held up to scrutiny, but can't see them when talking about human beings. You never want to consider the context of a person's reasons for being gay, or that they may have a valid reason to have an abortion, or to be an atheist or a different religion. Suddenly it's all black and white when you're generalizing about people you've never met.

If you reserve the right to pass judgment on total strangers... whom you'll never even meet, then we can judge the Bible, which is readily available, and the words say what they say. You can explain it away all you want, but there's a lot in the Bible that you don't really believe in. I know it makes you uncomfortable to read those passages that make god look bad, but there's no denying them.

Viva la Evolucion!
