Seven preachers celebrated the Orlando shooting!
The God of the Bible is their source.
God burns down a whole city (women and children included) simply because they were supposedly homosexual. (Genesis 19:23-25)
orders the death of witches, sorceresses and anyone who practices
magic. (This verse was justification for the Inquisition.)
God commands that homosexuals be killed for their acts. (Leviticus 20:13)
When are people going to admit this hateful garbage is in their holy books?
I posted this and a couple of other statuses about how the Abrahamic holy books are the source of hatred and violence and causes most of the problems in our world. I had about 30 hateful and violent Bible verses from just the first five books in the Bible as proof. Only one person (an atheist) put a "like" on it. No one commented, and my husband argued, saying: "I never saw any of that in the Bible." Well, he never read the whole Bible!
Here I was just floored at the violence and felt like I had a revelation that the source of these attacks on gays comes straight from the churches, and all I got was a Jewish person commenting who was totally offended that I lumped his Abrahamic holy book in with the other two. I pointed out all the hateful passages in the Torah and of course, he said that they all believe that their religion changes with the times, so they are not hateful. I showed him where in more conservative sects of the Jewish faith, many men beat their wives; I showed him how animal abuse is rampant and the Kosher means of killing animals is unjustified (the animals are not "clean" and are straight from the factory farms) and they go through immense pain due to religion; and I showed him that there were a couple of Jewish terrorists, although certainly less. I showed him that women are held back in the Jewish religion, and given a specific role. I also pointed out that God telling each religion to "be fruitful and multiply" makes no sense. Wouldn't God only tell that to the people he favored and none of the other religions since he wants his chosen people to take over the world? Yet each religion thinks they are the ones who will be rewarded, and they need to further increase the population with their uneducated children. (I didn't phrase it quite that bluntly.) All he did was get angry.
No one admits the hateful and violent passages exist in their holy books and that they hold back society.
