"Any man that lay with another..." was not a commandment to all, just to the Levite people.
"Kill the witch..." was a specific law to the Israelites of Exodus, not to everyone.
This is the problem with people that read the bible 'cover to cover', they oy read it once and they only read it literally. They don't bother with any kind of context in any scripture that they read.
I think this is why there's atheists, they're biblically ignorant and purposefully stay that way.
Says RR. I could find a thousand christians who would offer a different interpretation of just those few verses, let alone the whole bible.

There is no final authority on what it "really means," there is no arbiter on what is for whom and how to separate allegory from historical retelling - the whole book is simply a mess. The sooner you quit with these mental gymnastics the sooner you will realize why atheists in fact do exist - we are capable of reading the many holy books with an objective eye, and all of them are completely ridiculous.

Hint: The proper translation is not 'unicorn', it's 'wild ox'....
Sure, make up whatever you want. Millions of Christians disagree with you, probably more than agree. You are a fan of the logical fallacy of argument from popularity. Well, there you go. The NIV and the KJV trump all the other Bibles in distribution. Whoops, using your pretzel logic, you lose.

In a few weeks we should compare the proceeds of both your beyond belief place and the church's donations....
If you wanna be schooled, that is.
Well, the two largest charitable benefactors in the US are Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, both atheists. You are willfully ignoring the point. Gross receipts are irrelevant. Christian charities are demonstrably the most inefficient ways to donate, with over 90% of the proceeds going to overhead. This has been documented and demonstrated to you before. Instead of gross receipts, let's visit the actual percentage of donations from secular versus religious sources that actually makes it into the hands of those in need. If you want to be "schooled", that is.

Hitler never renounced his Christianity. It was an integral part of Nazi Germany. It was the impetus for the Holocaust. It was in the writings of Mein Kampf and in German law at the time. If you are referring to "Hitler's Table Talk", that is a known forgery by a desperate Christian trying to distance himself from the evils available due to your immoral dogma.
In Hitler-- Memoirs of a Confidant, Hitler reveals himself through conversation to colleagues from a conference on economic policy. In it Hitler is reported to have spoken, glowingly, about raising the "treasures of the living Christ," "the persecution of the true Christians and sanctimonious churches that have placed themselves between God and man and to turn away from the anti-Christian , smug individualism of the past," and "to educate the youth in particular in the spirit of those of Christ's words that we must interpret anew: love one another; be considerate of your fellow man; remember that each of you is not alone a creature of God, but that you are all brothers!"
Hitler, the Nazis, Christianity, and Germany. Bedfellows. The codified laws included theocratic pronouncements. You didn't read that list, did you, "three monkey statue"? You're flailing in the wind here. It must be so painful to be so wrong about everything.
Shall we get into a copy/paste war with Hitler's quotes or will you supply a pro-Christian quote from him that was after his ascension to power and that is NOT a public speech.

I wish you luck.

I didn't move anything, you tard. He wants to go beyond the power of suggestion and clinically remove the ability to think freely from those he calls liars, Christian and Muslim liars only though. He's a bigot who is against the "free-thinking" of anybody who thinks the way he thinks that they shouldn't. Everybody has lied at some time in their life. In fact, all life on Earth relies on the ability to be deceptive to survive, to "evolve". Artificially altering that ability in any species is tantamount to genocidal intent against the subject altered.

If we were living during the salem witch trials, you would be telling me that "do not kill" doesn't have to apply when dealing with witches, because clearly "do not kill" was for moses but "do not suffer a witch to live" is for salem.
The Immoral Grand Book of Multiple Choice is just a tool for consolidating money and power and most efficient at ego masturbation.

Boom! There it is. No two Christians really agree on the "one true word". This alone disproves the entire immoral dogma.

I mean, I do agree that every religious person is in a sense lying to themselves, intentionally or not, but I would never advocate for "removing the ability to lie." Do you have a link to a video of him saying that? Or his site?
Yes...

Please provide a quote for your assertion. So far, you haven't. You did move the goal posts. First you claimed he wanted to actively harm people, then you claimed he just wanted them to stop lying. You should stop lying to yourself. You look ridiculous.

Genocidal intent. Well, you Christians are the experts on that.
