Yeah, the whole slaying of babies and injunctions to genocide, witch-killing, and murdering of homosexuals has merit and value. What's that? You didn't even know that stuff was in there? Why am I not surprised? The reason religion is a problem is because God is conceptualized as the ultimate authority, and as such any evil or injustice is permissible. And the bible--as well as the Quran--is full of such evils and injustices.
