<quoted text> First off there is all types and the circumstances were totally different. It is not immoral to do work to pay off a debt or to agree to work for a seven year period to obtain a wife if both parties are in agreement. You are the ones who are making moral judgements which ignores cultural context. You say slavery is immoral by definition. That is an objective moral claim. What is your objective basis for your objective moral claim? The Romans thought slavery to be perfectly fine for their culture and time and who are you to say they were wrong and you are right? What is your objective basis to condemn the Romans?
Uh,yes, it is. You sicken me, but, you'll be popular in prison. As long as you and your cellmate are in agreement.

Shithead, in a power-powerless arrangement there can be no agreement. You Christians make me sick. Your silly, immoral Apologetics have been eviscerated millions of times and you still parade around the most ridiculous tropes. Why?

'Rational atheist' oxymorons condemn the Bible for setting guidelines regarding slavery in cultures where it was a consequence of war and debt, but excuse the sacrificial murder of unborn children for the convenience of irresponsible couples.

Really? What corporation can buy and sell people as property, and can beat them unto death, as is described in the Bible?
Sorry, but no, the slavery in the Bible has no modern equivalence, and it is really amazing that you are trying to pain me as an anti-semite when you are being an apologist for something like slavery. Give me a break.

<quoted text>Today? Belgium. The uber-Christian DeBeers family, African slave traders, machete-wielding amputates of 10 year olds whose family resisted their slavery, control the market. Diamonds are one of the most plentiful "jewels" on Earth, but you Christian profit mangers don't care whom is destroyed in their marketing. After all, you don't care about or answer to people. All that matters is your Pocketgod.
The Richard Dawkins family made a fortune by trading in slaves.
Is he going to pay reparations?
Or is dealing with blacks too lowbrow for hipster Godhaters like you and him?

So it was OK then. Now it's not.
How's BibleGod think about that?
He have shifting morality?
The morality God established is sin leads to bondage and death. Always.

How did that shift?

And?
Slavery is immoral by definition. Why won't you condemn the slavery in the Bible as immoral?
Really?

So is jail then.

Moreover, God warned Israel they would die and go into bondage if they became immoral. Exactly what happened.

God says blindness, bondage and death are the consequence of sin.

Are you blinded by your sin, or are you deliberately playing ignorant about what the Bible says?

Interestingly, the more our culture engages sin, the more our political system moves into socialism, the government controlling our lives...

Why doesn't a 'rational atheist' oxymoron see these things???

More nonsense from a fool.
Let me repeat: What's a fair wage for selling your daughter into sex slavery?
Idiot.
Today we pride ourselves with daughters in porn, or closer to home, free sex to any mongrel in the neighborhood.

And you condemn cultures that still protect their daughters from being labeled sluts?

Oh wait, not 'all' cultures, just ancient Abrahamic cultures!

Bigot.

<quoted text>You make the assertion, you provide the proof. That is the way reality works, but, to appease you, I will enter your fantasy world where you have a big penis and a woman, once, somewhere touched it...
Even though the Gospels go under the names of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, they are, in fact, written anonymously. These names first appeared in the second century and were assigned to the anonymous writings to give the writings apostolic authority. The Gospel of Mark was written before any of the other canonical gospels.
The Gospel of Mark is the most important of the synoptic gospels because it is the primary source for Matthew and Luke. Seventy six percent of Mark is reproduced almost word-for-word in both Matthew and Luke. An additional 18% of Mark is reproduced in Matthew but not in Luke, and an further 3% of Mark is in Luke but not in Matthew. This means that 97% of Mark is reproduced in Matthew and/or Luke.
Matthew contains 606 of Mark’s 661 verses. Luke contains 320 of Mark’s 661 verses. Of the 55 verses of Mark which Matthew does not reproduce, Luke reproduces 31; therefore there are only 24 verses in all of Mark not reproduced somewhere in Matthew or Luke.
In other words, like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, you have been lied to. Your whole life. Yet oddly. You still love the lie. Weird
OR,

They all witnessed the same thing.

The 'duh' factor in 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

<quoted text>This is how it is so blithely illustrated that Christianity is nonsense. They are required to jump through hoops to apologize for human bondage. Everyone in 2014, all 7 billion of us, know that human bondage is wrong. Is it universally banned. No. Why? Because idiots will always avail themselves and take advantage of the weakness of others. The difference between humanists and theists is that humanists realize how wrong the possession of others is while theists try to apologize for the behavior of other humans in the name of their pocket god.
Theists suck. They always have. They always will. Exalt gods? No! Exalt your fellow man!
Yes, atheists are the birthers of our government.

That's also why you see atheists at the forefront today in the battle against human trafficking.

Your credibility slip is showing...
