I always encourage the benevolent philosophies. The bible has some great quotes. But you gotta admit as religions go the western ones tend to be bipolar.
Put your children to death if they curse at their parents? If society followed that gem who here would be alive right now?
One quote in hundreds I could have brought up. Yahweh is quite the god of war.
We should all focus on the good and ignore the bad, in all aspects of our life. Religious or not.
