"He took the carved Asherah pole he had made and put it in the temple, of which the LORD had said to David and to his son Solomon, "In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my Name forever."

No mention of God having a wife.


"The king ordered Hilkiah the high priest, the priests next in rank and the doorkeepers to remove from the temple of the LORD all the articles made for Baal and Asherah and all the starry hosts. He burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of the Kidron Valley and took the ashes to Bethel."

No mention of God having a wife.
ASHERAH - The Lord God’s Lady?
The goddess Asherah was the consort of El ("god"), the supreme god of Canaan and father of the popular Baal.{SNIP}
Baal is a fertility god worshipped by the Canaanites, it isn't the Christian God, the God from the Bible.

I think I've made my point, God had no wife.

I don't think anyone should be killed - well I could make an exception in your case.. But who wants to kill to a retard? You are arguably the forums resident idiot.

By the way - if you smile any wider you'll get lipstick on your ears.

I believe those are the same ears someone's holding onto right now!

I think I've made my point, God had no wife.
When the ancient Israelite put as male and female deity in the same room beside each other. You could think something else I'm sure.
The fact is the ONE god, caused the destruction of the concept of a female god.
His wife was destroyed because of the idea of a supreme being.

A fact you cannot surmount , that you are not one.
Nor was your Yahweh, or any vision you have of god real.

Only the deluded imagination of retarded theists inventing an alternate reality
A fact proven in the courts of American laws..

Once again you are fact deficient. Have you ever heard of Marine Corps Major General Smedley Darlington Butler? During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. By the end of his career, Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to twice receive the Medal of Honor, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.

In 1933, he exposed The Business Plot, a military coup to overthrow FDR and install a military dictator. He was a true patriot in every sense of the word. He wrote a book in 1935 that is easily available for free, online. "War is a Racket" is a scathing expose of the military industrial complex firmly ensconced from K Street to Wall Street.

http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisarac...

An excerpt:

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few -- the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.

And what is this bill?

This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations.

For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, as they are today, I must face it and speak out.

Tell Major General Smedley Darlington Butler that "the pig should be put to bed." You're like Riverside a Redneck. When you have a thought, just consider the opposite to be true.
