    By not being able to read the bible critically and By absorbing the so many apologetic Midrashim as if they were written in stone, we sweep under rug the belligerence attitude the religion has towards women, non-jews and non religious people. If anything let us criticize loudly the misogynistic side of the bible god , the elitist side of the bible god, we will be able to infer by then that maybe the god depicted in the bible is more like a tribal god and we dont owe him anything! we certainly can still love and be proud of our Judaism and accept it as a sign of humility rather than a sign of ego.
