Quote# 53036

[The death penalty is good for the environment]

"So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel." ( vs. 33-34)

Did you see that? God said that the land is POLLUTED and DEFILED when killers go free. In God's word, environmental pollution is associated with SIN, not carbon monoxide and lead poisoning. The best way to clean up America is JUSTICE. Justice will teach people to respect the law once again and to fear God. If that happens, maybe more people will repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Nothing could help our environment more.

Holy crap! You just discredited your own argument and proved yourself to be a moron by ADDING garbage to the Bible!

So he thinks that that verse is really talking about pollution? What a moron. The Hebrew word is chaneph, and means godless, defiled, or profane. God is speaking directly to Israel, and was a command not to leave the religion of Judaism. It has nothing to do with letting convicted murderers live or die, and certainly has nothing to do with pollution. Christians are getting dumber and dumber. It's a good think I left in time.

Edit: I wonder if they think that all the references in the OT to "aliens" is actually talking about beings from another planet? It be funny to find out.

Utterly pathetic, primitive thought - about on a par with killing people to make sure the sun comes up each day.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, bish.

Did you see that? God said that the land is POLLUTED and DEFILED when killers go free.

And yet, some gay guy gets beaten to death, and suddenly this line is forgotten...

God said nothing.
He/she/it doesnt exist.

Allegory for Jesus

"In God's word, environmental pollution is associated with SIN, not carbon monoxide and lead poisoning. The best way to clean up America is JUSTICE"

This is what a fairy tale looks like. I have no idea why you guys don't see it.

Reread Numbers 35. It's talking about the rules for the treatment of people who kill other people, whether by accident or on purpose. It defines when it is, and is not, legal for the victim's family to exact revenge. It doesn't say "the land is polluted and defiled when killers go free". It says the land is polluted and defiled when a killer is revenge-killed in defiance of the elaborate rules set forth in Num. 35.

"Bible Believers" should be changed to "Bible Cherry-Pickers".

You could've just submitted this sentence alone and I still would've given it a 5.

Oh, good. Wanna come over and sand my 104 year old house siding and take the asbestos insulation off my steam pipes? Unless you're a sinner, I'm sure you won't charge me as much as the pros, and you won't even need the respirator and hazmat suit. Hose everything off when you're done (the lead and asbestos is harmless after it's washed into the soil).

Just don't ask me to pay for your lung scan or mesothelioma treatment.

Why are so many fundies sternly against taking care of the environment in any real way? Doesn't the bible say that we're supposed to take care of the earth, like in one of the very early verses about Adam and all that Garden of Eden bullshit?

11/30/2008 1:51:37 AM



Fuck recycled paper! We must kill people!

@John:

Catholics call Protestant theology "burger king christianity". And there's an article at Wikipedia called "Cafeteria Christianity" which is practically the same idea.

It's nice to think that all criminals are evil, and can't change so we should just kill 'em, but the problems are twofold - how do we decide that they're hopeless cases beyond rehabilitation, and how do we avoid executing innocent people? The latter's happened before, disturbingly often. A system where even one person who ends up on death row may die while guiltless of the crimes they're accused of is simply broken.

So we agree, that murderous missing link in the White House needs to visit The Hague.
