One of the guys here has a superb quote. I'll paraphrase, although I'm sure I'll get it wrong. "Good people do good things, bad people do bad things. Only religion can make a good person do bad things".What a bunch of absolute hogwash!
Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg.
This is shown in the very book you claim is the Word of God.
The Israelites slaughter CHILDREN in the name of their religion. Your book orders parents to kill their children for disobedience. Your book says that we should kill people for the "sin" of being gay. Your book orders the death of people who have the audacity to work on a Holy Day.
If you want to lead a moral life the LAST place you should turn to for guidance is the Bible.
