The Holey Babble

Should a woman be killed for being raped (Deut 22:23-24)? Oh, I'm sorry. Only if she was raped in the city. Because if she was raped in the city, she must'ven't cried out loud enough. The idea that no one was in range, or that nobody cared enough, or that she had a knife to her throat, of course, never crossed God's mind. And only if she was "betrothed unto a husband", because everyone knows women are property!

And if a man marries a woman and does not find an intact hymen (because women should never play sports!), she must be killed. (Deut 22:13-21)

If you say "...but that's the Old Testament!", I give you Matt 5:18-19.
If the Old Testament didn't apply, why keep it in the Bible? I'l tell you why: the OT is for cherry-picking; if it lets you deny evolution it's correct, but you can ignore the hatred of women and foreigners and just keep the homophobia.

Well, off to burn in hell for my polycotton (Deut. 22:11).
