Why the Bible should be banned

The Bible is hardly something we should be teaching our children or anyone for that matter. God was so happy killing children and infants. He killed every infant, toddler and children in the deluge he sent to destroy everything. When he annihilated Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone, he just didn’t bother about infants, toddlers or kids. He had a special love for killing the firstborn in his monstrous campaigns against the Egyptians. He sends his angel to behead their firstborn. His passion to kill the first born remained alive for ever. The Israelites celebrated the Passover and sprinkled blood on their doorposts so that God wouldn't kill their firstborn children (Hebrews 11:28) like he did those of the Egyptians as recorded in the Exodus.
The Bible is not only mere falsehood or a collection of fables gathered from here and there of the ancient period, full of transmissions and outright deceit, but also an account of God’s particular love for Israel to the exclusion of all the others. He sees women as accursed and treats them as sex objects of men and oppresses them. It is dominated by a fiendish and angry God who kills the entire kingdoms of Canaan area to settle his small tribe Israel.  If another word suites the Bible God, it is Demon and his actions are simply demonic.
How can this thing be the best book? How does it become the bestselling Book? May be they are forced upon people as they force children to accept Christianity without any consent from them. Christianity has been forcing its ways upon people from the time The Roman Empire chose Christianity as its official religion. Modern day terrorists and serial killers must have learnt a lesson or two from the Old Testament practices like stoning adulterous women, raping, oppressing, beheading firstborns, massacring people and animals and annihilating entire opposition armies even by throwing heavy stones from heaven. This book needs to be banned as it leads people to violence, deceit, falsehood and treachery.
As Christopher Hitchens asks what kind of a designer or a creator can be so cruel and indifferent. What kind of a god will choose to reveal Himself to semi-stupefied peasants in the desert regions? And a considerable part of the Bible-the Old Testament-are narrations regarding their lives, animal sacrifices, rituals, wars, cruelty, social life and relationship with their tribal god.  The choosing of a small tribe, at a particular period of human history, to reveal His mind and His grand plan to redeem man from the pits they had been thrown into  with the original sin, is against the universality of any Supreme, all-loving Being. Those who lived before Christ and the vast majority of those who lived later have not heard of Him or got convinced of Him. Why should man read this stuff intended for a minuscule tribe and accessed by a minority of the world population even after the coming of Jesus?   

Many thinkers have laid bare the truth about the Bible before me. They have shown that the Bible is full of violence and ugly stories, with a few seemingly good platitudes and parables interspersed. Anyone who has read the Bible independently (without surrendering his/her intelligence to faith) will find it hardly worth reading. But still, preachers, teachers, priests, bishops, cardinals and the Pope himself setting aside the intrinsic controversies, fallacies, fictitious stories, misleading concepts, sexy narrations, descriptions of vengeance, anger and utter nonsenses, propagate that it is the ‘word of God.’ Their programmed brains do not see--as Robert G. Ingersoll(1833-1899) mentioned  in his book, “The Works of Robert Ingersoll”--the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous massacres, unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled. It cannot be the word of God otherwise we have to conclude, as mentioned already, the God who inspired the Bible is a demon whose hallmark is wickedness and cruelty.’
