Quote# 5527

Actually, we do have the right to judge which lives to take away. The bible was quite clear to the jews of the O.T. what behaviors warranted the death penalty (as it were). I don't recall the practice of putting people to death going away with Christ's arrival here. He came to fullfill the law, not abolish it. Though we would have a population crisis if we put all of the adulterer's to death, that does not mean that if we chose to do so - that it would be unbiblical.

Let me be the first to suggest that you die in a fire.

Ah, so Jesus' execution was justified, got it. Be sure and tell him that when you see him.

Let me guess: you want to be the one doing the judging, and not be the judged. Because if you ever answered back to your parents or ever wore clothes of two different types of cloth, you're fucking dead meat.

You do know the history of this belief too, I assume. Killing people for their possesions or to control the masses based entirely on made-up accusations of witchery or Satanic worship. Torture state dictatorship such as the dark ages.

Fundies think they'll be sitting pretty in such a world but you'll be just part of the impoverished minions slaving away for your masters.

Well, I suppose then the historical connection between serial killers and Christianity shouldn't come as a big surprise.

Edit: The article isn't terribly well-written, but the figures are verifiable.

Thou shalt not kill.

if we punished every person according to old testament law, there would be about 20,000 people left on the planet.

the kind of people alive would be people who live miles away from the sea so no shellfish, are all orphans so they can't talk back to their parents, don't wear clothes so no mixed fabric. they would have to leave the community when they get married so they wouldn't risk being guilty of adultery.

it is simply not probable or perhaps possible to fulfill those ridiculous rules, even jesus seemed to recognize that. please tell me why we should make a special enforcement exception for teh geys?

"The bible was quite clear to the jews of the O.T. what behaviors warranted the death penalty (as it were)."

"He came to fullfill the law, not abolish it."

Adam "Man Vs. Food" Richman eats pork & shellfish in contravention of Levitical Law.

I don't see you fundie Christains obeying all those laws, so unless you're prepared to drop the whole homophobia based on Leviticus BS, I suggest you STFU.

I see Newt Gingrich & Josh Buggar are still alive. I guess you've abolished Biblical law, then.
