Can We Seriously Take The Bible Literally?

Asking a believer if they "take the Bible literally" is like asking a husband if he still beats his wife! The issue of Christians taking the Bible "literally" has become a major point of ridicule - even more recently by President-Elect Obama, who joined the chorus of ridicule by claiming during his election campaigning-

"Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is okay and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith." [Catholic News Agency]

President Obama should know better! [more]
