God said People who have Flat Noses Canot Serve Him

God said People who have Flat Noses Canot Serve Him
Leviticus 21:16-24 lists flat noses right up there with blindness, the scurvy, and other disabilities that disqualify people from serving in the temple.

Even though at the time, I was no longer a Christian, I was broken hearted to read 2 Samuel 5:8 where king David goes so far as to put a price on the head of the blind and lame, claiming that he hates them to his soul. This is not spiritual blindness he is talking about because Jesus told the Jews that if they were spiritually blind they would have no sin (Matthew 27:46). That's weird that even though I no longer believed in god, it still hurt to know how much he hates me when all my life I've been told that he loves me. When I tried to talk to some Christians about this, they jumped on me with both feet.
The god who allows children to be raped out of respect for the free will choice of the rapist, but punishes gay men for engaging in mutually consensual sex couldn't possibly be responsible for an intelligently designed universe.

Humans generally have protruding noses, which distinguish them from apes, which have flat noses. Humans also have chins, which no other animal has. So if you see creatures in sci-fi movies who have protruding noses and chins chances are they are humans even if they don't otherwise appear to be humans.

As for the specific passages you mentioned remember that the God character demanded blemished-free animal and plant sacrifices. Cain got rejected for his imperfect plant sacrifice.

Quote:16 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

It's the job description.

I don't understand the point of this thread. Is it so say "the bible says absurd things!"? If so thanks for the tip!

It's necessary to remind the theists that their god is a dick.

Ok I think I get it. Basically if you don't point out some backasswards thing in the bible once and awhile christians will forget that it's there? 

That actually makes allot of sense. 

This thread has my full support.  Nice Thread

It's really something though how christians try to make the god of the bible all loving these days while dumping those parts of the bible out
god would hate me that says a lot he would a hate a lot of others i know how you feel.

Someone who wrote that part about flat noses must have seen a group of people with flat noses.

I honestly do not understand it.
