You mean the same book that promotes genocide of non-believers including women and children ("Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and %$#." (I Samuel 15:2-3)<quoted text>
Whomever spammed my comment ARE the "nutty & clueless" ONES! ;~)
"Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America" clause of our US Constitution requiring the President of the United States to be a 'Natural born citizen of the USA' IS taken directly from scripture and it IS written into 'our constitution' based on what they themselves had read in the Bible in Deuteronomy 17:14-15, based on God's instructions to the Nation of Israel for choosing a king.
In this part of the Bible, God tells the Israelites that in order to qualify as King of Israel a man must be a "natural born" Israelite ... 14 ¶ When thou shalt come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
and shalt possess it, and dwell therein, if thou say, I will set a King over me, like
as all the nations that are about me, 15 Then thou shalt make him King over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall
choose, from among thy brethren shalt thou make a King over thee; thou shalt
not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
The libTARDS and their days of destroying this nation are numbered ...
And they KNOW iT!
That is WHY they dispute everything a Conservative says!
2 Chronicles 7:14-16 Geneva Bible
If my people, among whom my Name is called upon, do humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my presence, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I
hear in heaven, and be merciful to their sin, and will heal their land:
Then mine eyes shall be open and mine ears attent unto the prayer made in
For I have now chosen and sanctified this house, that my Name may be there
forever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
You mean the same book that encourages raping of women and dashing children into pieces ("Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." (Isaiah 13:15-16)
You mean the same book that exalts men over women (“Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression (1 Timothy 2:11-14)."
You mean the same book that commands the destruction witches thereby invoking the slaughter of 100,000 women in Europe in the Middle Ages in the Great Witch Hunt ("thou shall not suffer a witch to live (Exodus 22:18)."
I think that I have read enough to form an opinion as to the "blessings" that the bible has bestowed upon mankind. James Madison, the father of our Constitution had it right when he wrote, "During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."
Mark Twain had it right when he wrote: "Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion—several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight."
