The father in the article below is a devout Christian who used the Bible as justification for himself and his son to rape his daughter. I am not saying that I agree with his interpretation of the Bible, but if the BIble is so unclear that someone can use it to justify such a horrible act... then it isn't much of a book when it comes to morality and human decency.
I prefer we establish laws based on concepts like human rights, the 'golden rule', and protecting our world and our society.
The Bible is none of those.
You claim that adherence fo the Bible is required for a society to thrive. I would suggest history says the opposite. The nearly 1000 years when Christianity was the dominant force in Europe are collectively called "the DARK ages" because they were times with poor literacy, wars, oppression, and social inequality. The advances in our society of the last 600 years were from the rise in humanism, starting in the Renaissance, and continuing through the Age of Reason and now the Age of Information. In each case, it was the lessening of the influence of religion that allowed these advances to occur.
Even today, if you look at the areas of the world, and even within the USA, with the highest social unrest with correlate with higher religious involvement. Areas like rural Kentucky and Missouri that have close to 100% self identified Christians have the highest per capita rates of drug abuse, spousal abuse, and violent crimes.
