From Mr Bob Frost

Sir: While God may, indeed, be a vegetarian in the early part of Genesis, it would appear to be merely a phase, as with so many other youngsters, that He was going through.

By Chapter 15, He is encouraging Abram to cut various animals in half, and by the time we get to Chapter 22, He has convinced Abram that he should tie up his son and place him on an alter for sacrifice.

Certainly if such behaviour was repeated today, one would look to prosecution of Abram by the RSPCA, both God and Abraham to be investigated for possible ritual abuse, and Isaac to be taken into care and to receive counselling after his horrific experience.

Yours sincerely,

Bob Frost
