Quote# 86707

[Why, in Leviticus the original 'law's was slavery not abolished?]

Because Slavery is not a sin. Slavery sets a paradigm for the believer. One must become a slave to God. To be a proper slave one must understand the concept of slavery. Therefore we must have a biblical example/understanding of what a slave is.

Apologist fail.
Slavery was OK with God in the Bible because slavery was OK with the Bronze and Iron Age Middle Eastern tribesmen who spoke for God when they wrote the Bible.
One more proof the Bible is not the word of God (or if you look at it another way, that we are more moral than God).

At least this person is honest about what the Bible says about slavery. Usually, believers insist that those passages need to be "interpreted correctly" to mean pretty much the opposite of what they say. Oddly enough, the parts that they like never need to be "interpreted correctly."

So... god allowed (allows?) slavery purely as an example of the relationship he wants with us?

There is no part of that which sounds even slightly like a good idea. If I thought god had the remotest possibility of existing, I'd devote all my energies to see that he stopped.

That you could say this and not be sickened disgusts me.

So you need your holy book to condone slavery so that you can understand what it is?

P.S. If slavery is not a sin, that means your God, who is offended by mixing fibers and eating shellfish, is not offended by slavery. Your God is an a**hole.

Congratulations, you have admitted what I've always said about Christianity, you are literally slaves to your god.
Now the next question is, why the fuck did you think this was a good sales pitch to make to atheists, people who abhor slavery in all forms?

To be a proper slave one must understand the concept of slavery.

You think the Southern cotton plantation owners needed a stint as a slave to know what one was? All they needed was a whip and a gun and a field of cotton to be picked.

One must become a slave to God.

If God is omnipotent, do you have a choice? I mean, when the Africans were dragged over to the US in chains and the white guy had the whip and the gun, do you think the African said "gee, shall I become a slave and pick cotton or shall I get marched out at gunpoint, publicly beaten and then hanged? Wow. Tough choice."

Ahh, Drich, one of the latest Christian loonies to infest atheistforums.org lately. Though in fact he's not the only Christian to argue there that slavery in the bible was perfectly OK.

Oh for the love of Krishna.

You are to be slave of God in the sense that you see GOD in everything and to respect the worth in everything.

If you where truly that enlightened you would automatically know that slavery is a great evil because respecting life is sacred, dumbass.

And by "biblical example" you mean owning slaves?

Alright. You can start by taking out my garbage, and then you can scrub the toilet, and then you can mop the floor, and don't start with that, "I don't do windows" stuff, slave, or God will punish you.

What an interesting supreme and eternal being.

He wants to be praised all day, he wants slaves, he wants sacrifices brought to him on an altar, the "blood of the lamb" to be shed for him, he demands that all his creations follow some stupid petty rules he thought up, ...

Sounds more like the whacky dictator in Woody Allen's film "Bananas".

We must not fear fundies.
Fear of fundies is the mind-killer.
Fear of fundies is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
We will face our fear of fundies.
We will permit it to pass over us and through us.
And when it has gone past we will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear of fundies has gone there will be nothing.
Only atheists will remain.

Well then I can help you on your journey of "spiritual enlightenment" by selling you into white slavery. We'll see how long he spouts the virtues of slavery after he gets sold to give blowjobs in illegal sex dens.

The scary thing is: if God were evil, how would a person like this even know?

Thanks for defending your case with one immensely bad argument.
