The problem with the Bible, I find, is that it reflects the beliefs of people during the time it was written. Attitudes towards race have only recently begun to improve, and slavery was a major problem these past hundred years, I believe. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't realize this, and so use the Bible as an excuse to be racist/sexist/homophobic/etc. Conversely, a lot of people use lines in the Bible as an argument against Christianity, which again, may not necessarily reflect the views of the Christian in question.

If only the Bible could be updated. :P
