Ten Commandments one of the most negative documents ever written.

Barney Zwartz, The Age (Australia) is reporting:

Cleric Francis Macnab of St Michael's Uniting Church on Collins Street, is hoping to start a new faith for the 21st century that moves away from an interventionist God.“THE TEN Commandments, one of the most negative documents ever written.” With that provocative claim posted high over two city streets, controversial cleric Francis Macnab yesterday launched “a new faith for the 21st century”, a faith beyond orthodox Christianity.

Dr Macnab says Abraham is probably a concoction, Moses was a mass murderer and Jesus Christ just a Jewish peasant who certainly was not God. In fact, there is no God, in the usual sense of an interventionist deity – what we strive for is a presence both within and beyond us.
