Apologies to the Christians that aren't Morons...But a Lot of You Are Morons

Really this isn't about any one thing in particular, rather about how Christians tend to cherry pick the bible based on their own biases and prejudices.  For lack of a better way of putting it, the Bible is a big old book with a lot of stuff in it that is stupid, outdated, makes no sense, or some wonderful combination of the three.  And Christians are okay with only following bits and pieces selected by a complex process of ???????

It gets even better when they extend this logic onto things on which the Bible has nothing to say.  One of those is the issue of pornography.  Hardcore religious groups hate porn something fierce, and they'll speak out against it constantly, usually when children are involved.  (PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!)  The most recent of this abomination is the NYFRF posting an article about the ACLU.

It seems the ACLU has taken umbrage with the fact that many school filters aimed at blocking pornography, also block legitimate Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered websites.  You can make the David Silverman face at their complaints about that all you want, but I actually started thinking in a different direction.

Rape, sex, sodomy, the selling of children, slavery, prostitution...all of these things are in the bible, why the hell aren't we blocking religious websites too?  What the hell are you talking about, it's the bible, nothing is explicit...because it's the bible!  At least that's what I imagine the religious response to those comments to be.  If you need, you can click on the David Silverman face again.  Granted we all have a certain slant we put on things due to our personal thoughts and feelings, but a lot of Christians seem to be very adept at making theirs especially retarded.
