The risqué bible
Can you take any religious document fundamentally? Is it to be believed that a few verses, can represent the philosophy as a whole? No! Even many verses may not represent the religious beliefs of any religion. To understand takes life long study of a religion.
If we complain about Christian beliefs are belittled because of verses taken out of context. The fairness demands we allow other religious be treated the same.
The following are an examples of violence in the bible.
A biblical Romeo and Juliet?
2: And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite,prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.
3: And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.
4: And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife.
5: And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come.
13: And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:
14: And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:
15: But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised;
16: Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.
24: And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city.
