I don't even know about facial hair or rapists in the bible there is one line only about being gay. People are weird aren't they using religion for whatever they want or don't want
Yeah I've actually red much of the bible myself, which is actually why I was like this is all pretty messed up I better convert away from this
OK Janet, I looked it up and read a little, Beards seemed optional but rapists could be stoned to death I wish they had kept that law in our current laws.
what i am worried about is this
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 “If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found, then the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has violated her. He may not divorce her all his days."
Oh yes, The poor girl is now got to be married to the evil rapist , just shows how little the bible cares for females. I hope someday women rule the world and men who can't behave will be disposed of. As garbage that some are.
In reading this passage, I don't see "rape" in the passage at all.
Maybe I am missing something....
It sounds more like a guy and a girl got caught with their pants down. (Shotgun wedding)
In that case yes a guy was responsible to take care of his girl. See how everyone gets a message if their own from bible stories
it was passages like that, that made me become an agnostic- what kind of God would inspire his writers to say such a thing?!?! after all, isn't the bible "god's inspired word"? that's what the christian God wanted after all.
Ha...it's true...they do go bananas with gays.
Sorry for accidentally replying to your post.
Why? What? Who? Ha.
Here's another topic you forgot...
33 “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. 34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
I'm a Christian and I don't give a fuck about what anyone does. Stereotypes suck.
irrelevant post is irrelevant
Sure but Islamic sexism and extremism kinda speaks for itself does it not? My view is that any one who gets their ideology and opionions from one book written by people in a time when the earth was thought to be flat and CANNOT site sources outside said work for why it is the "one truth" cannot possibly convince me they have the answers to life and any militant/aggressive application of this ideology (weather through war or policy) on people who do not share it to me seems not only selfish and rude, but dangerous.
In short, They're all fake as far as I'm concerned and I do not wish to live under their laws
Look you don't have to sell me on the shortcomings of Islam. I have a flag on my wall at home with Infidel written in Arabic. I mean come on a woman is worth how many men in the quran? It's preposterous from a feminist standpoint that I would ever agree that that is a good ideology to have. The problem is this information has been washed into islamic women from birth to the point that they defend this predatory view of themselves. I wish so hard that I could get this information past their wall. It's the perfect scheme. Get the oppressed to believe their oppression is good for them. Further more, convince them it is their choice and will to believe they are less than you. It's rather genius in a sinister way. The question i propose to them is if the woman who is beaten desires to be beaten does it suddenly make it right to beat her without choice? no. Of course not. The despicable act of FGM is another one of those shining gems.
The sad part is the Mid- eastern world was once a heart of invention and innovation. Kinda the modern Japan of it's day even having automatons running on water serving dishes to guests. Now it is one of the if not THE least innovative areas of the world. Dubai isn't fooling me either. For all it's shiney facades It's dystopian truth is revealed in its code of law, which puts heterosexual men first above all others, forbids sex without marriage (yes even for visitors) and allows one to rape a woman then have her jailed because of it. I vow never to step foot in that shithole. (also I wrote a scifi dystopia based on it) Any rollercoasters holding records there I don't count either as a coaster enthusiast. (Fuck you Ferrari World Kingda Ka owns you in every way)
I could pull out several Islamic laws that destroy my ability as a strong tomboyish girl to ever convert to Islam (if I even believed in organized religion holding credibility, which I don't) but generally I agree with Bill Maher on this.
I don't think my pastor has ever once mentioned "the gay thing" (why you can't call it homosexuality is beyond me) in any of his sermons.
Sounds like false doctrine at play, from what I gather though.
I don't think so. Personally, I don't care who does what, with another adult. I think what many people are tired of, are people who are always wanting to be, in your face about it. The ones who are going bananas about it are those who get in your face and demand you agree with everything they say.
Janet - Building your Christian foundation on South Park episodes might be part of the problem.
Gays and oppressing women..........
It makes no sense to me, either.
