That Pesky Old Testament

Normally, when I get into arguments with Christians about the rampant insanity of the Old Testament – you know, stoning kids for their rebelliousness, punishments for wearing mixed fibers, that kind of thing – they tend to say “that was the Old Testament and now we live under the New Testament” and move right along to some other topic of discussion.

Because, surely, no one is crazy or stupid or misanthropic enough to suggest that slaughtering children for refusing to obey their parents is a good and moral thing, right?

Well, generally, that’s correct in our modern age.

But then you find people like right wing yahoo. And, if nothing else, he’s chosen an apt moniker.

Remember, good people – as always – these sick individuals walk among us.

Scary, isn’t it?
