    Should the Bible be classified as adults only literature?

    I won't list all the explicit passages but this site contains a list of the Bible's most explicit verses: Evil Bible Home Page

    Should the Bible be classified as X-rated literature and not be allowed to be distributed to minors or sold anywhere but adults only bookstores? Discuss.

    How is one supposed to understand modern literature without knowledge of the bible, its motives are classical. As an atheist the bible has not made me a member of a cult. However, it's one of our oldest collection of (moral) stories.

    The OT is a pile of filth though, kids bible ftw.

    Not at all. Only material with the goal of arousal should be rated X.

    The bible tells fictional stories using real life scenarios to make a point on morality. I don't have a problem with anyone reading about sex, drugs, death, etc. if there is a greater value to be had from using these topics.

    Nothing good comes from sheltering kids from real life.

    I see nothing wrong with that as long as one's beliefs are based in reality. Christians are based on an X-rated fantasy novel. Therin lies the difference.

    What about rated R then? Only 17 and up can read it without parents' permission.

    EDIT: Actually Song of Solomon was the bronze age version of a paperback porno.
