Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe people who are serious about the subject don't use this simplification, but unfortunately, it is the common wisdom, in the English speaking world at least. The reason it is so harmful is that it makes people forget that Christ said that the ethics of the Old Testament is wrong. Thus, this simplification supports Christian fundamentalism.

I elaborate upon this in my reply to Sassafras below, where I also note that I was being intentionally polemical. Obviously you don't deal with these issues with check boxes. (But maybe if you're blogging, you do...)
