Oh right - your "almighty, perfectly moral deity, the source of all human morality" wasn't capable of setting a better example. In your mind "God" just figured "well, I can do a little better, but I certainly can't share real morality with these people."Slavery was universal and far more cruel and inhumane then the regulated slavery depicted in the Old Testament.
hahaha! So he's impotent at effecting change and yet you worship this "deity."God depicted in Scripture always works withing the system to bring about results. Including slavery.
We have zero objective basis to condemn slavery???You have zero objective basis to condemn slavery and your problem is more the Bible than actual slavery. Slavery is just a means to rant at the Bible.
Could you make a more repulsive statement? You think slavery is a moral goodness? Well, you must. After all your deity tried to make slavery better.
It's amazing that you will compromise your humanity, your morality, for this imagined being you so dearly love. I already gave you the argument from analogy - you know it would be awful to be a slave, but here you are, claiming we can't dare to say it's actually immoral and wrong.
You are right now arguing that slavery is acceptable. Your arguments mirror the arguments from Christian slavers throughout history.
Yes, your belief system is repulsive. No wonder it was used to justify slavery - and so many other atrocities.
