Great to hear from you Oddman!
I was raised in church, but am a non practitioner. My church would have replied that you are looking at the wrong type of religion and that the second part of the bible largely was written to remedy the issues in the first, with it's more punitive flavor. Something that does not require any belief in religion can be gleaned from that second part:
"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you"
Sometimes that sentence gets overlooked by those who claim to be followers of the faith, I might add..
Social and family disintegration is responsible for the unfortunate necessity felt by many that the media and government need to address things that should be taken care of(and used to be) by parents and family.
