Practicing on the Bible

Do Christians practice on the Bible, their holy book?
THE MISSIONARY zeal to convert people to Christianity focuses on a few aspects and brushes over other, more important, points.
Look at this cursory glance at the Bible’s verses and see for yourself how much of the Bible is ignored by Christian theological hierarchy: the priests and popes.

Leviticus 20:9 If anyone...curses his father or his mother, he shall surely be put to death…
20:13 If a man...lies with a male as those who lie with a woman...they shall surely be put to death.

Deuteronomy 23:24 When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, then thou mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure…

Deut 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
Perhaps your Christian bank manager can explain this law more clearly.

Deut 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: Ever heard this one from a Christian? When a Muslim says this then he is ridiculed.
Deut 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of (different) sorts, as of woollen and linen together. Watch out for those t-shirts made with a combination of materials.

Deut 23:13 …when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig..., and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:
The stand up urinals favoured by Christians are in direct contravention of the Bible’s teachings.

Deut 23:2 (An illegitimate person) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter…

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The Bible is apparently only for stirring sermons, not for practical implementation in daily life.
Let us not fall into this trap and make the Qur’aan a book only to be read beautifully and not practiced upon.
