The people who so proudly take it on faith that everything in the Bible is so, because it is proof of their celestial worthiness and the quality of their faith to do so, are quick to toss faith aside from there on, and speak not of what they believe to be so, but of what they know to be so because the Bible says so. What they just took on faith, they now take to be a fact, ignoring the fact that a fact based on faith, in complete disregard of the evidence and the requirements for rational discourse has no standing whatsoever. A fact has its own validity regardless of what is believed about it. People of faith say things like, "God hates gays," and "God will send sinners straight to hell!" Without introducing either statement with "I believe..." They declare it to be a fact beyond doubt and not beholding to belief. Because they say so. It is their opinion. And that is all it is. The rest of us are free to form our own opinions about their opinions, and leave them in their own world of "Let's Pretend," for as long as it pleases them to do so.

As Dorothy Parker once said, You can lead a whore to culture, but you can’t make [them] think.
