Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

WTH?!? Friday, Ridiculous Facebook Thingie Edition

This is just too rich

The wonderfully hilarious thing about this is THAT THERE IS NO BIBLICAL DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE!   And - even better - in the Old Testament, a man could have multiple wives.

And isn't the point of the New Testament that it rendered the Old Testament obsolete?  Isn't that changing the laws of God?

But if you think not, then well -- as for those immutable laws - spend a little time with Leviticus and tell me how you feel about that.

Meanwhile, marriage is between one man, one woman, plus possibly her sister, and for sure his brother's widow, should such an opportunity arise.
Conservatives have no sense of irony, but I am forever wedded to mine.

I've always thought the Bible was the most malleable object on the face of the earth. And what you say, proves my point! :)

Jazzbumpa said...

True -

Virtually every principle in the bible is contradicted by some other principle in the bible.

People who say they're for the "Biblical definition" of *anything* are people who haven't actually read the book they're supposedly quoting.

Just sayin'.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

BadTux said...

Because Canada is the 51st state. Duh!
