Selling Daughter into Slavery
« on: June 21, 2013, 01:21:36 PM »
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? "

Depends if she is uppity.  If so, a little slavery might cure her of it.

Understanding scripture and the theology behind it is not cherry-picking, despite what pop anti-Christian arguments would have you believe.

Cannot think why this thread has popped up. Under the Justinian reform of Roman Law I recall that fathers, and fathers only, might kill a daughter who bought dishonour on her family - this still happens today among Moslem families in my city, the difference is it happens now not then, the killing may be undertaken by any or several of the family but although a practice in some communities it isn't legal now. And it has long ceased to legal in any country whose civic structures were Christian in origin. That said I think an ancient law is still on the books which allows for the killing of any Welshman found in the English city of Chester at night.

If we dig round in the corners of history we may find things done then were very different, shock, horror. :)

As to slavery I remember being offered money for my daughters in Turkey, I guess my expression was all the answer the scoundrel needed in response

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).

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.

How many sheep do you ask for your daughters?

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?

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? "

Obviously there are few on this forum that reject 1,484 years of the 2nd covenant and worship a "God" not recognized in the 1st covenant..

Don't talk his talk. Two covenants plays to his position. God has a single covenant. That is all.

Read the book of Hebrews, clearly the earliest Christians recognized a 2nd covenant.... As did communion...

Don't really care.  So, just let me know when you have something actually important to contribute to the forum.   The only things I see from you are trollish fights, ridicule, and commentaries.    

Of course, I stir debate.  It sometimes gets into knock down drag out fights.  But I articulate what I say around scriptures, church teachings, and quote passages and Christian texts.   On the other hand, I just watch sly comments fly from your fingers - basically meriting nothing, but ego feeding on the most pathetic imaginable level.

That's your opinion.  Everything you say here has been repudiated to the nth degree; yet, you keep coming back for more.  Do you enjoy being repudiated?  Is that the life lessons you teach your children ... wait, I said I don't care about what you do while you care about the EO and use of rings, icons, iconostas, et al.  Did one of your children come to you and ask why does his homeschooled friend's parents use icons and wear wedding rings?

"Physician, heal thyself."  If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

 You constantly mock Holy Tradition and Orthodox belief by cherry picking scripture when you know darn well what the Orthodox answer will be.

Most of us can accept and respect people who reach alternative conclusions about faith.  Fine, you reject the Orthodox Church. You want to create your vision of what you believe to believe  Christianity of the Apostolic era looked like . Fine, it's a free country, but don't complain when you keep coming back time and again with the same old, same old over and over again again and you don't like the answers. It's not like the answers will be any different.

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).
How many sheep do you ask for your daughters?

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?

Seven.

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.

"Physician, heal thyself."  If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

 You constantly mock Holy Tradition and Orthodox belief by cherry picking scripture when you know darn well what the Orthodox answer will be.

Most of us can accept and respect people who reach alternative conclusions about faith.  Fine, you reject the Orthodox Church. You want to create your vision of what you believe to believe  Christianity of the Apostolic era looked like . Fine, it's a free country, but don't complain when you keep coming back time and again with the same old, same old over and over again again and you don't like the answers. It's not like the answers will be any different.

Okay, so I 'mock' Orthodox Tradition, and the Orthodox OP on this thread mocks Torah - you know - the words of God recorded by Moses.

Also I'm not "creating" anything, unless you can show me where I posted fake stuff.

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.

If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

I am not mocking the Bible. We believe as Orthodox Chistians that scripture is part of the picture. I am using linguistic contradictions and anachronisms contained therein to argue against  those who are outside of God's Orthodox Church and who view the Bible as some sort of uncontradictory, all the answers are there for the finding, " I can figure it out for myself" guide book book to life, while clearly rejecting the teaching of the Fathers, the councils and Orthodox Tradition.

Frankly you remind me of the the small child that asks a question and keeps asking it over and over, fully expecting a different answer. Two plus two is always going to equal four, no matter how many times you ask. (And I have some experience with children, having raised three who are adults who are good people and who have kept the Faith.)

Or who lie about the first 1484 years of the 2nd covenant.
so you are confessing your sin.

Beef is kosher.

No penalty is imposed in the Torah for eating bacon.  And the NT declares it, along with all other foods, clean.  The same cannot be said of homosexual activity.
