    Deuteronomy 25:11-12
    New International Version (NIV)


    11 If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, 12 you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.






    So if you're losing a fight to the point you need help from your wife, take your anger out on her lol.

    Why read the bible looking to insult people?

    w/o any historical context, most won't understand the meaning behind much of it anyway.

    Who am I insulting?


    Most, I'd say 99%, of christians don't take the crazy parts of the Bible seriously, like the verse I posted.


    No christian I can think of would do what their God tells them to do in this instance.

    So you throw the rocks back?

    Seems perpetual.


    Best to avoid whackos that are that wrapped up in something.

    You know as well as I do that thumpers of all kinds get bent outta shape when people bring that wacky stuff out.

    my life long example that has yet to make a lick of sense;

    no meat on Friday. In Catholic school we got fish on most Fridays. So, me, knowing that fish is meat ask a nun about it. Straight faced, looking me in the eye, no blinking, no hesitation; "Fish isn't meat." I fell into a stunned silence.
    Future conversations about it ended in them getting upset and me laughing.

    Oh

    getting your nuts squeezed causes vomiting. Back then that meant food got wasted and the man was also dehydrated. considering the near desert conditions, she may have nearly killed a man over a fist fight.

    No it's not what Christians do. Tell me, how do you justify your hate and feel better?

    So after the man vomited, her hand needed to be cut off so that he could be fed and dehydration prevented?


    Lol funny but that actually makes more sense than the verse does.

    Talk about taking that verse out of context. I would hope that the law would protect men from having their genitalia attacked. Even if not with that precise punishment. We would live in a very crappy society if women could attack a man's genitalia with no punishment whatsoever being dispersed by justice. I'm sure most men would disagree that they wouldn't want a woman to legally be able to do that. Especially when you just had a disagreement with her husband.

    Talk about crazily spinning a verse to justify it.

    It's saying if a woman defends her husband while he's already in a fight by grabbing the other dude's junk, her hand should be cut off by her husband.

    It's a crazy verse, just have fun with it and laugh about it. We both know you wouldn't take your God's commands seriously in this instance.
