Thanks, Piers, for the advice. I prefer to leave my Bible unchanged. For those of you who disagree with the Bible, that is your right. It truly is my beliefs that form my views and understanding of the Bible. I am fine with that outcome. I also understand there are those who disagree with me. I am OK with that result, too.
My belief system forms my outlook on the world and my opinion of what public policy should be and not be. This is the same for everybody. Our system here in the US is OK with this idea. Just don't tell me I am not allowed to use my belief system within the public arena, that is not how the system works. Piers does not get this. That is intolerance.
