Quote# 86668

“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech” Leviticus 18:21. Molech was the god of the Ammonites and Phoenicians. They sacrificed their children to this god and some Israelites sacrificed their infants to this very same god in the valley of Hinnom. America celebrated the murder of 54 million babies sacrificed to this very same god of sex.

Come on, babies light my fire!

Embryos aren't babies, just like nuts aren't forests.

3/28/2012 4:19:37 AM


Yes. Women's health and Moloch worship are one and the same. Why bother with nuance?

If they ever come up with a method for determining embryo's future sexual orientation,I'll bet aborting gays would suddenly, nay, miraculously be absotively A-OK.

Ron Graham celebrates the sacrifice of his children to Voldemort. That's why they have no noses.

Celebrated? I didn't know that there were post-abortion celebrations. Does Hallmark sell "Happy Abortion" cards?

I never heard Moloch was a god of sex, nor even that this was a name borne by one identifiable deity. As for sacrificing children, first these must be born, which I suspect is why you complain when they aren't.

Damn! I missed the festival somehow! I'm like the worst liberal atheist ever! In my defense the liberal media really dropped the ball on reporting this event and I never got my liberal agenda memorandum.

What? I am pretty sure that no one celebrates abortion.

Because sex is actual, reality-based, orgasmic ecstasy and human togetherness which is far more powerful than fatuous dreams of rapture and ectoplasmic mansions.

I say that, even though I know that religions have been subverted, way back in the mists of time, to just being used as another handy method of controlling herds of women, to use for spreading the wannabe alpha males' genes. It's just that it's mutated to the level of dribbling lunacy.

If for a moment we let pass the fact that this is all fiction, how do you know the Molech mentioned in Leviticus is "this very same god of sex?"

Doubting Thomas

I didn't know anyone celebrated any abortion anywhere.

Well, except maybe for a few men who were sweating beforehand.

Abortion rates in Western Europe are 1/3 to 1/2 what they are in the USA, thanks to better sex ed and more consistent contraceptive use (see the relevant Wikipedia articles for sources).

So Mr. Graham should support comprehensive sex ed and universal free contraception whole-heartedly, if he's really concerned primarily with preventing abortions.

If he doesn't, then he is at least being inconsistent and probably being dishonest.

“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech”

Wait. Does this mean I can't masturbate over my propane torch anymore?

3/28/2012 7:48:30 AM


Wait a minute. Didn't Jesus himself act as a human sacrifice who spent three days in a fiery place before ascending into heaven? Can't it be argued, then, that the entire crucifixion myth is in violation of this section of Leviticus?

I celebrate Abortion Day every year. It's the last Friday in April.

Oh, wait a minute...no, it isn't. That's Arbor Day, shit. Silly me.

Oh well, party on anyway.

"America celebrated the murder of 54 million babies sacrificed to this very same god of sex."

And that would be since the 60's... ~50 years to get that figure. You do realise that natural abortions number around that figure every god-damned year?!? That's 54 million abortions a year that God is carrying out.

And you are perfectly ok with that...

Archeologists dispute the stories of child sacrifice in the Old Testament. There is little archeological evidence to back them up and it is generally thought the stories were made up to demonize Israel's enemies.
Comparing these stories to modern day abortion is disingenuous, but then lying-for-Jesus is a anti-choice advocate's most popular tool.

Yes, and the sacrifices seem to be working: unemployment is going down.

Thank you Molech.

You're not supposed to sacrifice babies? Oops! My bad.

Because the Christian god never asked anyone to sacrifice their children, wait...

"Take your son, your only son – yes, Isaac, whom you love so much – and go to the land of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will point out to you." (Genesis 22:1-18)

"Consecrate to me every first-born that opens the womb among Israelites, both man and beast, for it belongs to me." (Exodus 13:2 )

3/28/2012 3:35:13 PM


Yeah, I'm sure the authors of the Bible were completely honest about the religious practices of the people they ended up slaughtering. They obviously had nothing to gain politically through blood lible, right?

3/28/2012 5:04:10 PM


so the Flood, earthquakes, sodom and gomorrah fire storms, Moses/Joshua genocides, and that virgin sacrifice thing... totally different right?

and when the hell was this 54 mill. celebration taking place, cause I missed it and I woulda brought dip
