I don't think anyone here hates you Drich. No one even really knows you.

Do not confuse hate and contempt.

What's the point of having any discussion with you if you're going to just claim whatever you want with no context? Take this one for instance:

(July 9, 2018 at 2:43 am)Wyrd of Gawd Wrote: It was moral for Judah to screw Tamar for a goat and to threaten to burn her alive when he found out that she was preggers.

You're just bald faced lying at this point, gee I wonder why you didn't post any of the scriptures you referenced... because maybe they don't fit the narrative you're trying to portray?

Here is the full story in context.



Not really the picture you painted is it? Judah even stated he was wrong, so how is the bible condoning the behavior? it's simply stating what happened.

David, (of whom God said was a man after his own heart) got another mans wife pregnant and had him killed, the bible doesn't condone that behavior, It's just telling you what happened, and God punished David for it.

(July 9, 2018 at 2:43 am)Wyrd of Gawd Wrote: If you think that the Bible preaches love you're nuts.  There's not one story in it that preaches interpersonal love.  Jesus even said that his followers had to hate their families.  

So when you find the five most moral things in the Bible you can post them and prove me wrong.

Spoken as someone who has no knowledge of the Bible, learn the different between law and grace, then we can discuss it.

Also, show where Jesus stated for one to hate their family, and I'd better see the word 'hate' prominently displayed.

Judah only admitted that he was wrong because he was proven to be the one who knocked up Tamar.  If someone else had done it she would have been roasted well-done.  His sons Perez and Zerah were bastards. IAW Deuteronomy 23:2 their decendants were barred from entering the assembly of the Lord for 10 generations.  And then some more bastards popped up when Salmon knocked up the hooker Rahab and produced Boaz.  And then Boaz knocked up the skank Ruth who had Jesse.  Jesse's boy David then knocked up the 6 year-old Bathsheba and had Solomon.  The end result was the Jesus character who came from a long line of bastards.

Deuteronomy 23:2 (KJV)= "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord."

As it says in Luke 14:26 (KJV) =   "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple."

And don't forget, the Holy Spirit is the one that knocked up Mary.  Joseph didn't get any nookie until after Jesus was born (Matthew 1:25 CEB) =
"But he didn’t have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son. Joseph called him Jesus."  

So by definition Jesus was a bastard and was barred from entering the congregation of the Lord per Deuteronomy 23:2.

You do realize that is an English translation of a Greek word, right?

Quote:3404 miséō – properly, to detest (on a comparative basis); hence, denounce; to love someone or something less than someone (something) else, i.e. to renounce one choice in favor of another.

Lk 14:26: "If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate (3404 /miséō, 'love less' than the Lord) his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple" (NASU).

[Note the comparative meaning of 3404 (miséō) which centers in moral choice, elevating one value over another.]

In other words, you are not to love anything more than God, God comes first than family second, but of course through your dishonesty you mean to imply that Jesus means that you should have ill will toward your family.

This god guy just cant get right.  To hear the story told, he stumbles his way from one massive fuckup to another, blaming every failure on everyone else at every point.  Reminds me of our favorite apologists.

Coincidence?

Who said anything about hating me?

I said what is worse hating someone over skin color or hating them because they do not think as you do or may hold different religious views.

The person I was speaking with fired back it is batter to hate someone with different religious views...

You can walk that statement back old sport. that is one of your people siding with "ultimate solution" to the National Socialists biggest problem.. what to do with people of did not side with their prescribed religion.

Once one of you committed to this hate I simple asked where does it stop? if it doesn't then how fast can we expect to see ghettos and concentration camps and ultimately mass crematoriums?

My point is that if it is ok to hate someone who holds a different religious view then what stops us from being the next nazi germany.. for them it was a 20 year economic down turn. after coming out of a 15 year down turn do you think if we kept going as under obama (riots and burning CVS' and, wig shops, rioters lives matter) do you think we would last 5 more years before we turned on each other?

So unless your willing to say you agree with absolutely everything said in the video (which I can easily debunk), how about arguing morality with your own words.

Go on then debunk it.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

Tinkety Tonk and down with the Nazis.

Everytime you decide to remember alt-history under Adolph bin'Obama, Drich, I wonder why you feel the need to ask the question of which of the two is worse, lol.
