Replace "cyclist" with "Christian" or "Atheist" depending on your point of view.http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/science/2012/09/cyclists_are_annoying_why_you_think_they_re_a_menace_on_two_wheels_.single.html

Nice straw man. All humans have morals (let's exclude extreme sociopaths from all). Yet it's quite amazing the way we rationalize and justify our actions so we can "do" just about anything we "want".
Why Christians "edit the bible" so to speak is quite simple actually. Christians "believe":
1) God is perfect
2) The Bible is the Word of God and therefore perfect
3) Man is not perfect
Any contradiction is therefore due to lack of real understanding.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
