The parable of the Good Samaritan is the most ethically wise lesson in the NT, IMHO.

Really? How do you feel about antisemitism? I have never read the NT, but I know that the good samaritan is regarded as the most antisemitic trope in it. The Samaritans and Jews had an adversarial history. The point of the story is to disparage Jews as cruel uncaring people. It's a violation of Jewish law to leave a man to die by the side of the road. We are required to help him. The story of the good samitan is antisemitic slander. Not only are the Jews depicted as being cruel and uncaring, but it is a traditional adversary of the Jewish people who is depicted as the righteous guy.

A guy was hurt and dying by the side of the road. Jews went by and pretended to not see him. Then David Duke saw the man and helped him when those nasty Jewish people wouldn't. That's how the story of the good samaritan sounds.

Yes.

 That's intellectually dishonest. The Samaritan isn't referred to as a 'good' Samaritan in the story. He is just called a Samaritan. Also, the Judean priest and the Judean Levite of the story are not called the 'bad' Jews. The story is referred to as 'the parable of the good Samaritan' because calling it the 'parable of the bad Jews' would be a bit too blatant. 

I enjoyed the comedy of the video, but it's not a valid response to the blatant antisemitism of the good samaritan story.

It's interesting how that plays out, really...most of the nastiest shit in new magic book is hiding in plain sight.  It's not surprising that you wouldn't see that when you read it or come to such an interpretation on your own.  You lack the necessary cultural knowledge that the people of the time an place possessed and, on top of that, aren't a garbage human being.

Imagine trying to explain a pepe meme composed of puns in type 3 southern shift to someone 1.7k years into the future. A future in which pepe has become a beloved childrens show mascot, lol.

IDK, it seems like an obvious question even before one realizes that the most ethically wise lesson in new magic book was actually that jews sucked...which probably makes it even more relevant to any discussion of the ethical value of the stories in new magic book.

What is the ethical value of the story if we have to reimagine it as another story? Who's providing the ethics?

RE: Damned atheists
Oh, fox news had an article that seems like a proclamation of war toward atheists. Here are some parts

Quote:Fuhrer was a rabid atheist

Oh well for an atheist he surely spent a lot of time in churches and with priests and awarding Catholic church with money. But even if he wasn't a Christian it was the Christians who kept him in power because they loved him and his principles.

Quote:And it makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? Atheists don’t believe in God, so they don’t believe in any transcendent, objective moral law. Nor do they believe that human beings are made in the image of God, and so they don’t believe humans possess infinite value and dignity.

And yet when his beloved orange Fuhrer calls Mexican children animals and says how white supremacists & nazis are fine people this guy and fox news have an orgasm of approval.

Quote:One has only to look at the growing numbers of abortions

Actually in secular countries where contraception is available abortions are lower.

Quote:and infanticide, to see the atheist-death connection.

Lol this is just stupid.

Quote:So yes, the modern breed of atheist is arrogant, ignorant and dangerous. Too many books written in response to these pseudo-intellectual hatemongers have been altogether too nice. Too many Christian authors have tried to be kind and amiable in an effort to demonstrate that believers don’t have to sink into the mud in order to defend the faith. That tact is very charitable, but unfortunately, it just doesn’t work with bullies.

You hear that? Christians feel bullied by jokes, logic and facts.
