OMFG OUT OF CONTEXT. YOU HAVE TO READ TEH WHOLE BIBUL. IT WAS THE CULTURE OF THE TIME. HJKHLDFJKGHLDKJG

I love how Christians suddenly become wishy-washy liberals when these parts of the Bible come up.

Yeah and then they claim that we should base our morality on the Bible and ask where atheists get our morality from.

My question is if morality comes from god and the Bible is how he communicated that morality to us, what moral principles are we mere mortals supposed to use to determine which parts of the Bible to ignore?

Slavery is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact the Bible is totally cool with slavery.

Misogyny is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact the Bible is totally cool with mysogyny.

Genocide is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. In fact god ordered numerous horrific genocides.

Human sacrifice is bad because it’s bad, not because the Bible says it’s bad. Ever read the story of Jephthah? (Judges 11:31-39)

etc…
