Quote# 7262

Of course He didn't think it was OK for masters to be CRUEL to their slaves...It is clearly stated that slaves should be subject with all reverence to their masters whether they are good or bad to them...This doesn't show that God felt it was ok for masters to mistreat slaves...

Considering people as property isn't mistreatment?

The point is that he condoned slavery at all!

So it's not ok to be cruel BUT it's ok to punish him so that he dies, as long as he lives for day or two after the punishment?
Neat. I suppose this doesn't count as mistreating them.

Clearly, you don't even comprehend what you're saying; I can only assume you're so mindlessly confident in the righteousness of your dogma that you'll regurgitate any assertion it makes that appears, upon cursory inspection, relevant to the subject of discussion in the full expectancy that it will support your position without even bothering to properly read it and see what it actually fucking says.

That a slave should always be reverent to a master, good or bad, explicitly and specifically allows for the possibility of there being bad masters and, both without any direct condemnation and forbidding condemnation on the part of the slave, implicitly accepts and condones them. This can only mean that your god not only approves of slavery in general, a concept abbhorent in itself, but at minimum both accepts and supports cruelty towards slaves even in excess of the inherent abusiveness of treating a human being like property.

Thinking it's ok to "own" other people is not ok, not at all. So how he thinks you should treat slaves is of no interest, as there should be no slaves, to treat or mistreat.

You, on the other hand, should not mistreat the period mark. One in the end of each sentense is sufficient. If you want to hint that the sentence is not really finished, then you can use three. But only rarely, not in each and every sentence.

The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery.  How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave?
"When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment."  (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

So these are the Bible family values!  A man can buy as many sex slaves as he wants as long as he feeds them, clothes them, and screws them!

What does the Bible say about beating slaves?  It says you can beat both male and female slaves with a rod so hard that as long as they don't die right away you are cleared of any wrong doing.
"When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property."
(Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
