Do these really exist? AND PEOPLE PAID MONEY FOR THEM? ( -___- )
it’s not that atheists think you’re all stupid or anything (i’m not going to go into the whole bit about creationism or homophobia), but when we see people’s rights being violated in the NAME of your religion, we can’t help but raise our hackles a bit, because, you know, that’s pretty shitty. and yes, it’s not all of you who are out throwing acid on women’s faces for turning you down, or keeping people from getting married, or trying to prevent my access to birth control. but because people with power use your religion and your god to do these things, we’re not okay. that’s unacceptable.
Hi, random stamp from deviantArt. I have some scripture for you.
Exodus(21:7-8) Selling your daughter into slavery
Leviticus 12 and 15: Women are dirty and impure after giving birth and while on their period
And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
note that it was ok for men to have multiple wives and concubines, though
27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
27:5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
27:6 And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
27:7 And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
Those are a few random examples, and I don’t wanna hear “boohoo but that’s Old Testament stuff”. Remember,
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Gotta love Professor Dawkins. He is a very wise man
