The Bible. One of the worst mind viruses to have ever plagued mankind. Besides, it may have just been a Roman Psyop according to some. Why let it continue?
Or, at the very least, a historical preamble explaining to the reader it is all make believe, on par with Harry Potter for accuracy and truth. With a giant fiction tag on every cover.
At least in Harry Potter, voldemort, the bad guy, was the evil genocidal madman with a racial superiority complex. In the Bible, the genocidal maniac, with a racial superiority as a vice, is God himself, with over 2 million killings directly attributed to him.
Heh... sorry about that BuzzyWigs (I love that name by the way. It sounds happy!). I just get rather tired of people claiming faith in God, and displaying a total lack of faith by their actions. It makes it all too easy for those with genuine, and robust belief, to be tarred with a brush which ought never to touch us. Normal, or at least marginally polite service will be resumed shortly

The point was not about what it is or is not, but that sometimes the pastors should think about what outlets that they can give children, rather than repress them. Children are not always going to do what the adults want them to do, they will find ways to try things out. Better to be honest and give them options rather than deny them and have the children decide to find out for themselves.
