No book can demand or justify reprehensible attitudes or behavior. No book forces anyone to be something or someone they don’t want to be. Church preachers and church doctrine can rant and rave about sin and sinners till the hell they love freezes over, but none of that will influence the person who is not willing to be controlled and manipulated. Resist the Devil and he will flee from you. Resist the church and flee from its pettiness, bigotry, and self indulgence.
