No! I think those that do "cherry pick" the verses/scriptures they want to follow and ignore those they don't want to follow.
If all the "bible thumpers" really bought into the "love thy neighbor as thyself", "thy shall not kill", and "judge not lest he be judged" it would be end of war, all forms of discrimination, racism, and sexism in a single day! Marriage equality and national healthcare would be the way of the land just based on those 3 verses.
However one of the things that makes the bible so fascinating is there is a verse to justify whatever stance one might have! One verse says "An eye for an eye" and another verse says, "Turn the other cheek".
Founding fathers of the U.S. believed it was "Manifest Destiny", God's plan for them (take) land from the Native Americans and Mexico in order to expand west. Terrorist use God as their justification for attacking other countries. Once again if we all lived by the 3 verses mentioned earlier the world would be a different place.
