I'm personally more comfortable with people critiquing the Bible as a part of their own spiritual journies, than critiquing the Bible in an attempt to make people who do believe in it look ignorant or to prove them wrong. It just seems like a waste to me to spend more time determining who God is than who God isn't.
I'm not a Christian, but I spent most of my life as one, and I still feel a connection to those who believe what I once did so passionately. It's almost analogous to a break-up, on some levels, and I was never one to hate the ex I once loved.
The Bible is all of ours, really, and I would never be one to advocate any form of censorship or inhibition of speech. But still, I think critiquing any religion is much more productive when it is about what we ourselves believe and not what we dislike about what others believe.
