Well Georgian Silver, God does indeed say "Thou shalt not kill" in the Bible. He also tells Moses to execute someone for picking up sticks on the Sabbath. Which Moses, being a God-fearing man, dutifully does. he also instructs the Israelites not to eat chameleons or ferrets. He also kills three thousand people for dancing round the golden calf, but doesn't kill Aaron, who told the people to do it.
Don't you think this stuff is perhaps better kept out of schools? Let's face it, it is rubbish, and more than that, it is pernicious rubbish. Of historical interest, of literary interest of course: but surely not of any moral interest?
