"if these are in the bible"
"can they be debunked"
How can you debunk them if they are in the bible?
How do you debunk scripture that was written in languages that do not translate correctly into the language you "read" (or at least post in)?
Further more...each one of these quotes are very popular with the "frightened atheists club".
Yknow the club...the ones who are so afraid that someone may have "faith", so they organize large gatherings or missions to stomp out whatever "good feelings" a "god lover" may have.
Gotta love people who believe in nothing higher then man...because they love to try and destroy anyone who trusts in "something better".
Oh well...debunk them, I can not.
and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’
And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.
You are the sons of the LORD your God. You shall not cut yourselves or make any baldness on your foreheads for the dead.
the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak...
but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. ... Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a wife to pray to God with her head uncovered?

I do not have a Bible and was thinking maybe the text was taken out of context to make it seem so vile.

LoL... I love how you make up your own interpretations.
1)According to you children should be killed if not up to your or your societies standards? LOL...nice one
2)According to you those still practicing Judaism and break these laws are still subject to death.
In the OT the price for sin was death. That's why it's so repulsive, but we no longer have to die for sin because Jesus saved us. How? By dying for our sins. Since our sins are paid for, we no longer have to pay for them again via the rules of the OT. That would be paying for sins twice. People no longer understand this though and are confused about the Bible.
