The Bible Says It!

Deuteronomy 13,20,21 (King James version):

13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her...
20 if..the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:
21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die

This just makes so much sense to Green Eagle.  It is in the bible, after all.  I know that all of the righteous Christians that are so obsessed about some verse in Leviticus about gays are now going to do the right thing. I am confident that Newt Gingrich will lead the way, crushing Callista to death with rocks, as he certainly had knowledge that she was not a virgin when he married her.

Thanks to Tina Dupuy at Crooks and Liars for bringing this oh-so-important biblical passage to our attention.

That's the beauty of religion. It allows you to pick and choose the passages you want to follow.

I hope your choice of this passage doesn't portend some animus against wives!

"animus" ? Can we use that word on mothers day?

The blood lust in Old Testament Christian and Judeo/Islamic scriptures is a curse on humanity and fuel for radical politcal and fundamentalist hatred.

When Martin Bashir quoted scripture regarding compassion for the poor, Rep. Joe Barton(R) TX responded with, "The Lord helps those who help themselves", to justify his vote to slash meals on wheels.

Of course, that is not in any version of the Bible, but it does convey their belief in, and service to, the cult of the Mammonite "free market".

Greed is both their virtue and sacrament, for the power of wealth is their only God.

They throw a fifty year tantrum over what the bible says about men laying down with men, but have nothing to say about the equally important biblical ban on eating shrimp.

Liars and hypocrites, every one of them.
