Break THEIR TEETH, O LORD

Why do Christians make their kids memorize only certain Bible verses -- like, for instance, "God so loved the world"?

Other verses are far more to the point about how much God loves the world. For example:

"The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt" (Deut. 28.27).

"Thy carcass shall be meat unto all fowls of the air" (Deut 28.26).

"Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat" (1 Kings 16.4).

"He slew all the house of Baasha; he left him not one that pisseth against a wall" (1 Kings 16.11-12).

"Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people .... And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out" (2 Chronicls 21.14).

And my personal fave:

"Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth" (Psalms 58.6).

Ouch! Not the teeth!

Well it's no news that the babble is completely psychotic. Great for studying psychosis of the bronze age. Either super cruel or illogical AND cruel. It's like a splatter movie before movies were invented.
Clearly anyone who claims it's holy or divine has not read it.. or suffers from same ilnesses..

Somehow we ignore or avoid these verses in the Bible. But we also ignore or avoid the massive amountsof misery all around us -- in our own starvation towns and cities.

We at "The Gods Are Bored" like the one about the carcasses feeding the fowls of the air.
