Wow that was about as desperate of an attempt to start a fight as I have seen on Topix. For starters I have made my views on bigotry known. Secondly coveting your neighbors wife is hardly a referendum on marriage, the point is the sinful thoughts to want to violate another's union. And divorce is unacceptable in God's eyes except in the case of adulltary.We apply tons of verses to both genders even though it may be about a single person or a man because that is how an individual is to apply the Bible to him or herself.

It is hard to say. You lack basic reading comprehension so maybe you will get an idiot exception?The point is a child doesnt know better or the difference from right or wrong and therefore cant be helld accountable, especially if they have never heard of Christ in which case they cant reject him. But if you drink paint or try lick an electrical outlet or any other absurdly idiotic way to die before you turn 21 then come back and let me know. Although I definitely was not surprised to learn you are younger than 21

Actually Henry is almost right. The truly educated are those who see the truth beyond the lies of the ancients. Their eyes and minds are open and refuse to join the rest of the blind, brain-washed sheep. You want to follow the "pied piper" to the slaughterhouse? Be my guest.

Just cause you "said" it/typed it/posted it/wrote it, doesn't truly make it so. In the end it's just your opinion, not a fact. Any book that is about the history of our world only teaches us what the writers want us to know. And the bible is always rewritten every year or so.

So divorce is OK for adultery, but if your spouse beats the living crap out of you and abuses you for years, no, your god says you have to work it out.

How, by praying for mercy?

No it's not and you know that.

How does a marriage become a union? Is it civil law or a god's law? Is one greater than the other? Is it OK to stay married because your god thinks it's best? Death comes to all of us. Is it better to suffer in life to appease what happens in death? It seems a bit silly to me.

Pick it up, dust it off and carrion.

No you can physically leave him. Some churches will grant annulments in these cases. But if someone gets married in the church then presumably they did so because they agree with their teachings. Maybe they shouldnt have married a wife-beater as that stuff doesnt just suddenly happen normally. But nothing is preventing the woman from leaving. Yet strangely many dont.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I realize there is no practical reason for typing slow so instead I am going to suggest you read this slowly. The point behind not coveting is someone shouldnt want to sleep with a person that is already commited to someone else. How you keep making it about marriage is beyond me.

Okay, explain this to me and tell me how it's "moral:"

Lions are a social species. Of all the big cats, they are the only ones who continue to live in a family based unit known as a pride.

When lions hunt, they do so by ambush. They usually target a weak member of the herd. How is it moral to target a weak member of a group and then ambush that creature for the purpose of eating it?

If it's not immoral, it's instinct.

If it's not instinct, it's immoral.

Right?

I want an exception because I can't reasonably rely on faith as a methodology for finding the truth. It's functionally the same as guessing.

If there is a real god, and it's not the one you believe in, don't you hope it will excuse your incorrect beliefs? Why aren't you scared of that possibility? Faith? Faith seems to work for everyone who has it, regardless of what they have faith in. So, what is the statistical performance of faith?
