1. Ah, but you see, those parts

of the Bible aren't meant to be taken literally.

Only the parts that reinforce our own personal bigotry.

I don't need a sarcasm thing-y, do I?

Oh Hell, just in case:

3. But, but um

That's all in the old testament. Oh, wait Jesus never said anything about gay people, must have been an oversight.

5. Paul did the NT anti gay texts, but there is a similar list to go with his verses because he also

forbade women to speak in public, ask a question of anyone other than her husband, to dress in any expensive clothing or clothing intended to draw attention to her looks. He wrote that slaves should obey their masters with joy, the master being God's earthly proxy. It goes on like this.
Jesus, not a word about it. But the NT is not immune from anti gay verses nor does it break the magic rule that each and every Biblical author who wrote against gay people also wrote in favor of slavery. And yet people quote those verses and pretend the next one does not say you can sell your daughters or some other horrific thing.

4. The Bible condones buying multiple wives and having harems as well and selling your daughters to the

highest bidder. The Bible is also for sharing all your wealth with the needy and is totally against amassing large fortunes. It is also against fruits or vegetables grown from modified seed and to eat of their flesh is an abomination in the eyes of God.

7. All debt cancelled every 7 years.

But it also says you can pass down ownership of human beings to your heirs, as if they were objects. As long as they are not your own countrymen, meaning as long as your slavery is racist God likes it just fine!

The bible also reports the first case of PMS.
