endorse stoning to death – it demands it.

death. Their blood is on their own heads ...

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

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

regarded Judaism as a primitive religion – and it was.

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.

blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his
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
He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the

altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries:
for I the LORD do sanctify them.

it just so happens Moab and Ammon were Arab kingdoms
