    Hmmm, I take that to mean Jesus is in favor of progressive taxation.

    PS

    A mite is most likely a bronze coin, and not an insect.
    Many of the first Socialists were Christians.

    Politics aside - the message here is pretty clear. A rich man throwing a stack of Ben Franklins into the collection plate means nothing and won't affect his lifestyle at all - a poor widow donating $10 means a lot more, because she's actually taking a serious hit in her income.

    And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean. And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled. But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

    ~Leviticus 12:1-5
    So... in other words, a woman is twice as dirty after giving birth to a girl than she would have been if she gave birth to a boy and, as a result, requires twice the amount of time to be considered clean.

    According to Jewish law, yes.

    You go by Jewish law to say that homosexuality is a sin, so why write THIS off as being some Jewish law that doesn't apply to you?

    Huh? I was just answering your question. These were the laws given to Moses from God to tell the "chosen". Why are you assuming anything else by my response? All laws in the Old Testament are Jewish laws.

    Wrong thread, buddy. This is the thread where we discuss Jesus playing with John the Disciple's penis.

    You still think somehow your homoerotic obsession is going to piss me off. That's funny.

    Don't get mad bro, I was just fucking with ya.

    Galatians 4:21-26

    Tell me, you who want to be under the law, are you not aware of what the law says? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman. His son by the slave woman was born according to the flesh, but his son by the free woman was born as the result of a divine promise.

    These things are being taken figuratively: The women represent two covenants. One covenant is from Mount Sinai and bears children who are to be slaves: This is Hagar. Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present city of Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
    There you have it: the whole Bible is a crock of shit. St Paul said it himself. Abraham having sons with Hagar and Sarah: never happened. It's only a story. That means that Ishmael and Isaac never existed, and if they didn't exist... guess who else didn't? That whole line... right down through Jesus. It's only to be taken figuratively, folks. St Paul said so.
