We're out of luck trying to find substantial moral teachings about marriage in either the Old or New Testaments. In fact, both Jesus and the apostle Paul are a disappointment.

Close scrutiny of the Sermon on the Mount reveals that it was not preached by Jesus. It is the literary creation of Matthew, to compensate for the lack of moral teaching in Mark; Luke decided to modify and abbreviate it, and the author of John’s gospel ignored it altogether.

The gospels are supposedly about the “good news,” but the letters of the apostle Paul are actually bad news. He wrote too much bad theology, had bad attitude, and was given to magical thinking. What a shame his writings ended up in the New Testament.

The scene of Baby Jesus in the Manger is so familiar, but take a close look. The Matthew and Luke birth stories fail the test of history, and cannot be reconciled: the Jesus story gets off to a bad start.

Religions offer the pious version of “…when you wish upon a star.” There is no substance to the claims made, and devout Christians—so many different brands!—Jews, Muslims, and Mormons have never agree about what God wants, or how he expects to be worshipped.

Since Christians don’t bother to read the Bible carefully, they’ve bought the hype that “God is love.” In fact, the Bible is Exhibit A in showing that God’s supposed love is eclipsed by wrath. There’s too much nasty, vengeful theology in the thousand pages of Christian scripture.

Any religion whose god commits targeted murder of babies and toddlers should close up shop and go out of business. Yes, it's in the Bible; see Exodus 12:29-30 for details.
