Attention xtians - Repeal the 13th Amendment


Okay, so in my continuing struggles with theitards, I posted a message asking if Slavery was moral. Simple enough, right? Well, you'd be surprised at the depths these people will go to justify their delusions! Here is the post I made:

"Just this one simple question needs to give you a little pause. The answer you give leaves you rather few alternatives.

1.) Slavery IS moral and right. The bible says so. Repeal the 13th ammendment, and go buy someone for 30 sheckles.

2.) Slavery is NOT moral, thus god is immoral. Is that really worth worshiping, and kinda throws a loop in the whole perfect thing.

3.) Someone made the whole thing up to suit their power base, and thus god is immaterial and just as made up as Thor."



SURPRISINGLY, or maybe not so surprisingly, a poster said, "Slavery is moral. The Bible does say so."

Now, I just can't imagine that we went through thousands of years of social evolution to finally enlighten ourselves enough to the point where we finally realize that slavery is in all ways immoral and wrong, and have that trumped by a book of circular logic. I am disgusted at that poster, and I must affirm more vehemently that all dieties are made up, imaginary friends.

What do you think?

Religious people insist there is an invisible man who lives in the sky. Their logic is obviously way off. So, what's the point in arguing with them? It's like arguing with silly cartoon characters. Did you ever hear tell of that wacky theory where Christians were handing out fliers that claimed that black people were descended from gorillas and white people weren't? I feel that the best thing to do would be to slyly subvert their kids by lampooning them on TV like that Robert Smigel on SNL.

Aw come on now Randy, that would make them look even more savage! Besides, it's right there in the bible.

Er... did they specify what biblically-correct slavery looks like?

Well, their position is that the slavery we had up until the mid 1800s was not biblically correct. /boggle WTF does that mean?

Obviously, I think #3 applies to all religions, and I agree with you that all dieties are imaginary friends. I can't believe someone actually said, in a public forum, that they think slavery is moral. *Shivers in fear of humankind.*

Honestly, y'all are so lucky that I reject religion all together.
It does say right there in the bible that it's perfectly fine to have slaves and kill homosexuals; wives must be submissive to their husbands, war makes God right ... I'm a very literal person, and this stuff is all very clearly spelled out in the good book, and I'd be the first person to follow it all to the letter.
