    Dirt, you are right… you can’t get rid of those passages. however it is worth noting that when the laws are/were practiced it wasn’t some vigilante type system. for someone to even be sentenced to death for breaking those laws you would first have to find a court with the authority to sentence to death and that views the law in question. then you have to get 2 witnesses to testify in the court. it should also be noted that during the time of ancient Israel that with how they limited possible witnesses (someone known to hate you for example couldn’t testify against you), and how closely the cross examined the witnesses made it so the death penalty was very rarely given.

    so then by your definition Hitler was moral…

    Jesus was not saying that it was “okay to break the sabbath to help the ox” he was saying that it wasn’t breaking the sabbath to do “good”. you see the pharisees were putting too much emphasis on the traditions around the sabbath instead of focusing on the purpose of the sabbath, to the point of even doing good (like in this case healing a person’s hand) was considered breaking the sabbath.

    and i would argue that if something violates it then it shouldn’t be done. then again i don’t know of a single instance in the US’s history where a politician would of had to choose between the bible and the law.

    Pub, no one is suggestin that they can’t protest racism. However when you sign a contract saying that you will play football in turn for your tuition being payed (what a football scholarship essential is) and then refuse to play football then should the school stop paying for their school?

    @VRW Conspirator:
    there is a small problem with that theory though. and that is in Gen. 2:18-23. lets look at what is talked about in these verses:
    1.) God said “man should not be alone” and should have a helper
    2.) God showed Adam all the living creatures (which would have included other humans if you were right).
    3.) Adam found no suitable helper and so God made eve.
    4.) Adam calls eve “woman” as she came out of ‘man’.
    5.) if eve wasn’t the first woman than he would have already given a name to what she was and so wouldn’t be called woman.

    the only logical conclusion is that the “man” and “woman” mentioned in Gen. 1 is the same “man” and “woman” in Gen. 2. the reason their creation is mentioned twice is because Gen. 1 is “the creation story” while Gen. 2 is “the creation of man”.

    as for where cain’s wife came from? it would have been a sister. it leaves out how much time passed between able’s death and when he married and it is also entirely possible that at that time of able’s death they had sisters.

    If he was getting hit by players he should have just kicked them off the field and if more of them did it then disqualify the team.

    Blink: if it is the minority viewpoint then why did attempts to have states add amendments to their constitutions have to be beat in the courts instead of the ballots?

    Not to mention that through a good amount of the OT many of the nearby nations practiced things like infant sacrifice… not the greatest cultures you would want your people mingling with…

    Um… you do know adulterers aremail by definition already married right? And why wouldn’t she marry fornicators? There sin is having sexual relations outside of marriage, so by marrying they would no longer be “living in sin”. And what about athiests? Just because a person doesn’t believe in God doesn’t mean their relationship is sinful

    “this is practically the same as Christians saying that others getting gay married somehow violates their own rights.”
    there are a couple bakers and a florist that has shown it to be true…

    It’s been a while since I’ve been in school but when I was most buses were kinda old and I assume maintaining seatbelts could get expensive for something that wasn’t even used on buses that had them

    It is more of they don’t want history in the wrong context. Just like I am sure you would be against Hitler being there (if it wasn’t limited to Americans) as while we shouldn’t bury the history about him we also shouldn’t put him anywhere that could be viewed as honoring his achievements even though he did some good things.

    i think it is more about asking women to be aware of what their choice in clothing is doing to men not that they must be changed.

    mikeil: i think he is saying he just doesn’t want to hear about it. not that he shouldn’t be punished for it.

    Maggie: i would like to see where you got the idea that he is against abortion when not getting one will cause the woman to die. since to me it seems like the abortion would be a case of “killing in self defense” not to mention it would be a choose for the baby to die or the baby and it’s mother.

  • [2] August 17, 2015 at 12:47am

    I am pretty sure there isn’t a person that would refuse a person from getting an abortion if not getting one would kill them, I would also like to point out thathat for the majority of human history a girl was an adult at around 10 and would be married to have kids of her own. So while the risk of major health problemservices is higher than if she was older, I am sure with modern medicine we can keep the risk down.

    Potato? He obviously cheated to get such a high score

    To my knowledge AR-15, M-16, M4, etc. have always been called assault rifles… I think you meant to say “assault weapon”

    Well, he didn’t get shot or even arrested over it so he is already doing a lot better than those that don’t have any intention of following the police…

    According to the article he was upset that she refused to serve him after seeing his military ID and only served him after he threatened to go to her manager he showed a different ID.
