Quote# 49929

It says that you MAY purchase slaves, but doesn't say you should. Therefore, I don't see what's so bad about this whole thing. I would never own slaves, I think it is morally wrong and despicable. If God thinks it's okay to own slaves, so be it. I don't care because he loves me enough to send his only son to die on a cross and he is not directly forcing me to own slaves.

Yeah, we pretty much got the legality of slaves thing covered without the bible. Thanks though.

You're missing one minor detail: Potential slaveowners may have a say in it, but the slaves don't. Why do people who consider this situation always place themselves in the former position rather than the latter? Still, at least you admit that the Bible says what it says on the subject.

So why do you think that owning slaves is morally wrong?
Do you think you are morally superior to god? After all you already admitted that owning slaves is O.K. according to the bible and therefore god obviously also doesn´t see anything morally wrong with owning slaves (at least if you believe, the bible is gods word).

And if you really think that your morals are superior to gods morals, doesn´t it give you food for thought? ;)

It says that you MAY have an abortion, but doesn't say you should. Therefore, I don't see what's so bad about this whole thing. I would never have an abortion [I don't have those kinda parts anyway :P] I think it is okay, but not my business. If doctors thinks it's okay to have an abortion, so be it. I don't care because they want what's best for the patient, as long as the patient agrees.

You think slavery is evil, your god thinks it's perfectly acceptable, and you love your god.
HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

"If God thinks it's okay to own slaves, so be it. I don't care because he loves me enough to send his only son to die on a cross and he is not directly forcing me to own slaves."

You think slavery is horrible, yet you'd do nothing to help the people being enslaved? You and your pathetic God are both sick twisted fucks.

Slavery has been banned for a reason.

How does your hippy nailed to a board have anything to do with slavery?

God is absolutely A-OK with slavery, although he thinks it's not cost-effective if you whomp one so hard that he's out of action for more than two days. And you say he killed his son to show how much he loves you? Sounds a tad harsh. If I were you I'd stay very, very alert.

christisking, I have an opening as a slave at my harem, are you interested?

No wages, you get the scraps from the kitchen when the dogs are done eating, you will live with 59 of your closest fellow slaves in a hut that measures 20x10x10 and you will be handcuffed to your bed at night.

Your workday will be from 5AM to 10PM, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You are NOT allowed to get married.

What do you say? Want the job? Sounds like fun, doesn't it

How many good little Christards go out a-witnessing and never return?

They were captured and sold.

If the bible says you may purchase slaves, how can you think it's morally wrong? Are you opposing the bible or something?

Ok. I'm so disgusted by this that I'm going to go one lower and Godwin it.

"Hitler thinks it's ok to mass murder the Jews, but I don't care because he's sending his troops out to make the world a better place. He's not directly making me murder Jews."

a mind far far away

Let's not forget the Muslims in the Middle East. They kill Christians for being a Christian, don't want Christians in their homelands, and actively torture those who refuse to believe in their lies, yet Christians the world over are crying out against such "evil actions perpetrated against humankind." BUT, it's OK if we do it, because our book said so, and our book is better than your book, even though the Koran actually has more historical veracity than the Bible. The only parts of the Bible that were carefully copied to be as exact as possible was the Law of Moses, which actually reads alot like the Koran. So what makes one violent, hatefilled, blood-lust view better than another?

In other words, you don't care if your god is a fuckwit just as long as you think he loves you. Who cares about them niggers anyway, right?

I've informed at least 5 people who think this way that they are now my slave but none of them ever message me back for directions to my house. I don't get it.

It says that you MAY purchase slaves [...] I don't see what's so bad about this whole thing.

So if your neighbors come parading down the street with their new Negro slaves, it'll be totally OK with you?

I guess "contex of the times" does not mean that much to you, huh?

First statement: "I would never own slaves, I think it is morally wrong and despicable."

Second statement: "If God thinks it's okay to own slaves, so be it."

"I would never own slaves, I think it is morally wrong and despicable. If God thinks it's okay to own slaves, so be it."

God's okay with it, the bible's okay with it, but you still think it's morally wrong. Congratulations on reaching a very admirable conclusion; now explain to me again how religion gave you your 'moral compass'?

Allegory for Jesus

Way to get your morals from God's divine law, christisking. I think that there is a fundie fight or twelve that you just got yourself into...

10/18/2008 12:49:44 AM



Wait, so...you don't think slavery is right, but you'd do it anyway if God said so? What?

"I would never own slaves, I think it is morally wrong and despicable. If God thinks it's okay to own slaves, so be it."

So God is not the source of your morals?

You even find some of the things your Bible says are OK to be morally wrong and despicable?

Interesting thing for a fundie to admit.

Maybe there is hope for you.

Frank

so, according to you:
1) god's morals are shit
2) you take your morals from god

therefore, your morals are shit

EPIC FAIL

'If God thinks it's okay to own slaves...'

There is no 'if'. The Bible gives you instructions on how to do it. If you people were 'true' Christians you'd be out there on the streets 'witnessing' that slavery be re-introduced. And us atheist 'Evilutionists' who've read what Darwin wrote condemning slavery could go out and protest.
