This isn't really a statement about specific things that are bullshit, but many Christians will say things like "I know the Bible" when what they really mean is they know the parts of they've been taught.
Once you start studying the Bible yourself you realize all the horrific things most people aren't taught and most preachers never talk about. Just a few:
Women and children are not only supposed to submit to the man, they are basically property.
If a man rapes a virgin, he has to make restitution by paying the father. If a woman lies about being a virgin, she can be put to death.
If your children disobey you, you can have them stoned to death.
Women never have the right to right to file for divorce but men can in the case of infidelity.
God once had a bear maul a group of young children because they called a prophet baldy.
God struck Uzzah dead because he touched the ark to keep it from falling over.
God ordered the genocide of complete cities, including women, children, and animals because they didn't worship him, yet we are taught God is love.
If a man is homosexual, he can be stoned to death.
If you get a tattoo, you can't go to heaven.
The verse that people use in Romans to say homosexuality is a sin and won't go to heaven actually translates as male prostitute rather than homosexual. Also, other things besides that are listed, but people leave those out.
If a man thinks his wife has been unfaithful and she is pregnant, he can mix a drink of herbs and if she was unfaithful, the baby will die and be extracted out of her body on her thigh, yet we are taught abortion is a sin in the eyes of God under any circumstances.
God curses entire generations, up to the 7th generation, because of the sins of the forefathers.
God hardened Pharaoh's heart causing him to refuse to release the Israelites but then punished him for not releasing them.
All throughout the Old Testament men who were blessed by God had multiple wives and concubines, yet we are taught the Bible teaches one man and one woman only in a marriage.
