Maybe it's time for a lesson on religion?

religions are more or less very old and weird(depends on your taste) cautionary tales to prevent stuff like this from happening?
So hopefully you can imagine my shock when someone suggested I could get my moral values from this collection of books. I don't think so.
What does the Bible say about beating slaves? It says you can beat both male and female slaves with a rod so hard that as long as they don't die right away you are cleared of any wrong doing.
"When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property." (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
You would think that Jesus and the New Testament would have a different view of slavery, but slavery is still approved of in the New Testament, as the following passages show.
"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)"

Too bad George Zimmerman didn't kidnap these girls. The American black grievance industry would have been much more outraged and outspoken. Maybe obama might even speak out about how these girls could have been his daughters like his son Trayvon.
Why is this type of racist speech allowed on such a heavily moderated forum? I'm not going to snitch on you for it (because I am not like you, who surely would snitch on me for any little thing), but that is really pathetic.
Trayvon got shot for looking like a street kid in a rich neighborhood. That could have been anyone's kid. Instead of teaching our children to defend themselves with fists from people following them and being aggressive, should we instead teach them to stab or shoot them just to be safe? Zimmerman initiated the confrontation with malice AND drew a weapon during the fight that ensued. Trayvon, if armed, should have shot him - and I wish he did. The wrong one ended up in a casket.
That has nothing to do with Nigeria's government and the kidnappings. But since Nigerians are mostly black, you probably care about as much about them as Trayvon.

I'm sorry, I usually let comments like yours just roll on by. This time, no. You're PROUD of the fact that your "missionary" relative yelled at another religion to be quiet as they called their congregation to prayer??? Why, exactly, is his religion more important than theirs? Your relative is perfect example of why so many are turning their backs on Christianity. Ugly American comes to mind...
