How many sheep do you ask for your daughters?
While we're at it, this ditty from the old television show "West Wing" popped into my head:
"President Bartlet: "I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be?
While thinking about that, can I ask another? My chief of staff, Leo McGarry, insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or is it okay to call the police?
Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town. Touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point?
Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side-by-side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? "
Enough troll feeding allready. This stuff was dealt within THE FIRST CENTURIES OF CHRISTIANITY.
So is this tongue and cheek to mock God's words in the Torah?
I often wonder if this forum is more loaded with atheists seeking a form of theosis, more so than humbling themselves before God's will.
For the OP, much of that was eradicated by the 2nd covenant. It doesn't make some stuff less sinful, only the result of the punishment. (Whoever is without sin, let him be the first to cast a stone).
None, are you making fun of God?
More evidence of you confusing God as the subject of a sentence, when the subject is yourself.
Well I'm not here to argue. They are making fun of Torah, plain and simple. Obviously there are many on this forum that have no love for God, nor respect for the 1st covenant.
Given your proclaimed stances on childrearing you might want to revisit Christ's affirmation on the reduction of the decalog into two commands, especially the second one.
And how many children do you have?
So you don't have children and you want to give smack to a person with 5 children child rearing lessons. Could I also assume you are single and in your 20's?
You could make that assumption about him, but, when you assume you make, and theyve always said, an ass out of u and me, and personally, you are quite welcome to make yourself an ass, or even into one, but leave the rest of us out of it.
The thing is, he/she/it just made a comment on my parenting, stating he/she/it has seven children. Of course these children are not really talked about, whereas I see many other posters here reference their very few children even. So I'm most likely getting commentary and ridicule by a childless person, about parenting - when I have 5 children. Ridiculous.
So you should be listening to Octomom?
Do you ever make sense?
So now you contort another troll. A man who has been married for two decades, has 5 children, to listen to a woman who is single, no father around, and a mess - merely to make a point that having children doesn't make you an expert. Nice exception to the rule to make your point.
Point being, you have no ground to stand on if you have no children to even dare speak of my parenting.
Sure I do.
I raised a kid. Never had to hit someone I had nearly complete control over. Heck, I rarely have to hit adults I little control when they get out of line. Now folks who are rather impotent do tend to lash out.
Oh, and people I love in general, I am not forcing them to be homeless and without food anytime soon just cause they won't tow my sexual moral line, especially after isolating them in my highly controlled world
And I don't read the Bible and ask any woman I've been with if I can RP some patriarch and have multiple wives.
I am sorta crazy like that.
And if someone makes a joke about selling daughters into slavery at the expense of the Bible, I don't get hurt over it, again cause I am not fixin' to role play anything of that stuff.
Five kids, not sure how you even find time to post here. Dealing with one really wreaked havoc on my internetz.
But hey, I am sure you have a wineskin with Father of the Year
burnt into it, so I should probably just listen to your pearls of wisdom.
