The Bible does not merely endorse stoning to death – it demands it.







Dreamer of Dreams? Death for YOU!

"And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death ... thou shalt surely kill him."

– Deuteronomy 13.5,9.






God's Way – public execution for Sin.



Does "Jesus" agree with this savage version of "justice"?

"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."

– Matthew 5:17






Dignity of Man?

"Buy and Sell Slaves" says God

"As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from the nations that are round about you.

You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their families that are with you, who have been born in your land; and they may be your property.

You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession forever; you may make slaves of them, but over your brethren the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness."

– Leviticus 25.44




Get out!
But the Woman and Kids Stay!

"When you purchase a Hebrew slave ... his service will last for six years. In the seventh year he will leave a free man.

If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and children will belong to the master, and he will depart alone."

Exodus 21.2,4.





Attach him to the Door!

"But if the slave says to you, 'I do not want to leave you' ... then you must take an awl and drive it through the slave's ear and into the door.

He will be your servant forever."

Deuteronomy 15.16,17







Family Values

The Biblical Answer to Incest – Religious Murder

"If a man has sex with his father's wife, both are certainly be put to death. Their blood is on their own heads ...

If a man has sex with his sister, the daughter of either his father or his mother, it is an outrage. They will be executed in public."

 – Leviticus 20.11,17.





On the Other Hand  – Compulsory Sex with Your Sister-in-Law

"But if the man refuses to take his brother's wife, she must go to the elders and say, 'He refuses to fulfil the duty of a brother to me' ... then the woman must take the sandal off his foot, spit in his face, and say, 'This is what is done to the man who will not restore his brother's family line.' "

Deuteronomy 25.7,9






Sex at the Wrong Time of the Month?

"And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people."

 – Leviticus 20.18






Spoils of War

'Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known a man by sleeping with him.

But all the young girls who have not known a man by sleeping with him, keep alive for yourselves.'

– Numbers (31.17,18)




Who Sends Evil Spirits?

"Now the Spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord tormented him."

– 1 Samuel 16:14.





Hmm good ...

"Could a being create the fifty billion galaxies, each with two hundred billion stars, then rejoice in the smell of burning goat flesh?"

– Ron Patterson



Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, child abuse – its all that horrid book ...


More Biblical Atrocities





So good, it's good to eat!

"Son of man ... eat this scroll, then speak to the house of Israel.

So I opened my mouth, and He gave me the scroll to eat ... and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth."

– Ezekiel 3.1-3.

The Bible is Repulsive



Biblical morality is archaic and savage. It reflects a barbarous, pitiless age and a tribal, slave-based society, a time when "elders" and priests ruled desperately primitive villages and nomadic or semi-nomadic clans. The Romans regarded Judaism as a primitive religion – and it was.

The legacy scarcely improved when repackaged as Christianity, for all the nonsense talked about "love" and heroic self-sacrifice. Indeed, as political need presented itself, the Christians turned increasingly to the corpus of Judaism to justify every vicious act.

The New Testament, with its skimpy biography of a humanoid god and eclectic collection of letters, meant the practitioners of Christ, raised up as "elders" and priests of a decaying world, drew heavily upon the Old Testament and its rich compendium of inhumanity and intolerance.



What's Love Got to do With IT?

'Love' appears 310 times in the Bible – but that's out of a total of more than three-quarters of a million words. But 'fun' and 'happiness' appear not at all. 'Freedom' appears just twice, once when Paul claims to be free born (Acts 22.27,28) and once when Leviticus advises the thrashing of a raped slave:

"And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free."
– Leviticus 19.20.

'Laughed' shows up just 13 times whereas 'cried' puts in 199 appearances, which figures since 'birth' is there 15 times but 'death' no fewer than 372 times; 'enemies' outnumbers 'friends' 270 to 49, and so it goes on. Just in case anyone should miss the general tenor of this horrid book Ecclesiastes (7.1,4) spells it out:

"A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth."

"It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: "

"Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better."

"The heart of fools is in the house of mirth."



Lame? Flat nose? – Not welcome in God's house

Jehovah: Not so keen on the physically impaired

"And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron, saying,

Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach:
a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
Or crookback, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy. Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel."

Leviticus 21:16,24.


A Good Book?? – Savage Biblical Injustices

Some of the acts for which the good book demands summary execution include:

striking or cursing your parents

"And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death ... And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death." Exodus 21.15,17.

being a gluttonous or drunken son

"And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die." Deuteronomy 21.20,21.

being a false prophet and following another religion

"And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death ... Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him." – Deuteronomy 13.5,9.

kindling a fire (or any other work) on the sabbath

"Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death." Exodus 35.2,31.14.


sex with a beast

"Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death."Exodus 22.19.


The Brick Testament
enjoying a threesome with your wife and mother-in-law

"And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you." – Leviticus 20.14.

approaching a holy candlestick

"And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die."  – Numbers 18.3.


passing yourself off as a virgin bride when you’re not

"But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 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." Deuteronomy 22.20,21.

failing to listen to a priest

"And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel."Deuteronomy 17.12.


Not suffering them darn witches
 being a witch or a wizard

"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." – Exodus 22.18

"A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them."  – Leviticus 20:27.

being a rape victim but not crying out loud enough

"If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city." – Deuteronomy 22.23,24.


being a homosexual

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." – Leviticus 20.13.


uttering Yahweh’s (secret) name!

"And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him." Leviticus 24. 13,16.

On the other hand, bringing about a slave’s death by beating with a stick – so long as he lingers ‘for a day or two’does not require punishment!

"And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money." – Exodus 21.20,21.

Contrast this with the summary execution required for selling a stolen slave!

"And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death." – Exodus 21.16




Cavallino – Lot and his lusty daughters

"And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father."

Genesis 19:35-36

A Good Book?? Ancient Biblical Incest leads to Racism

s daughters think no one else in the world is alive apart from them and their dad.

The naughty girls get the old man drunk and seduce him. Inevitably, both girls get pregnant and produce sons. One boy is called Moab, the other Ben-ammi, lesser humans than their Jewish grandad because they are the result of an 'unholy union'.

Lo and behold! – Moab, it seems, is the ancestor of the Moabites and Ben-ammi the father of the Ammonites.

Now it just so happens Moab and Ammon were Arab kingdoms to the west of Judah...

Thus a simple tale of incest in the mountains explains the origin and inferiority of nasty non-Jewish neighbours!



Michelangelo (Sistine Chapel)

Noah – roaring drunk & having naked fun with the family (Mrs Noah does the cleaning!)


A Good Book?? Biblical basis for Black Slavery

celebrated the end of the flood by getting roaring drunk, stripping off and dancing naked (alright, so far). His son Ham made the mistake of catching sight of him. An indignant Noah cursed Ham (and his son Canaan) for this, turned him BLACK and exiled him to Africa. Thereafter, Ham and his descendents were doomed to 'hew wood and draw water' for his more fortunate white brothers.

"And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. "

– Genesis 9:24-27.

An old Jewish legend speculates on the cause of African physical features:

"The descendants of Ham... have red eyes, because Ham looked upon the nakedness of his father; they have misshapen lips, because Ham spoke with his lips to his brothers about the unseemly condition of his father; they have twisted curly hair, because Ham turned and twisted his head round to see the nakedness of his father; and they go about naked, because Ham did not cover the nakedness of his father."

– Louis Ginzberg, The Legends of the Jews, 1909.



Unleashing a Hell on Earth –

Artists' reflections of the increasingly demonic mind of the Christians


"The later myth of the Fallen Angels formalises the elimination from the world of all those divinities who persisted in showing independent spirit: only lackeys are left."

– M.L. West

c 500 AD – Lucifer, though fallen, is still a handsome angel. He is the metamorphoses of a not particularly beastly serpent

(Trier Stadtbibliothek, Germany)


10th century – "Mors", Anglo-Saxon Angel of Death (looks quite benign!)


12th century – and sinners are locked into the jaws of a hellish monster

(Psalter of Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester)




13th century – and torture and torment have a free-reign. A degree of prurient nudity also heightens the horror.

(Fresco, Church of SS Peter & Paul, Chaldon, Surrey)




15th century. Demons dismember sinners. From Le grant kalendrier des Bergiers, Troyes, 1496.

Prurient nudity takes on an orgiastic dimension (something to raise the temperature in those cold cloisters?)

16th century. Colourful torture awaits sinners in the Final Judgment (Hieronymus Bosch)
