    Actually not true...Luke 17:2
    It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin.

    I have seen the "But they do it too!" nonsense used to defend a lot of things, but never child molesting.

    Weak, especially considering you're posting in defense of a pedophile

    The bible certainly does seem to encourage young girls to be raped as trophies, though:

    And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites ... And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males ... And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones ... And Moses was wroth with the officers ... And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? ... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Numbers 31:1-18

    When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it ... And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself. Deuteronomy 20:10-14

    How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing we have sworn by the LORD that we will not give them of our daughters to wives? ... And the congregation sent thither twelve thousand men of the valiantest, and commanded them, saying, Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children. And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man. And they found among the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead four hundred young virgins, that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh. Judges 21:7-11

    Go and lie in wait in the vineyards; And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances, then come ye out of the vineyards, and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh ... And the children of Benjamin did so, and took them wives, according to their number, of them that danced, whom they caught. Judges 21:20-23

    Debatable, as usual the Bible is written as an account of an event. So unless you were at the event, or in rare cases the Bible specifically states something...a lot is open to interpretation. Having said that, this verse is part of an overall statement about men having sex with women they are not married to, and then mentions about causing the children to sin as even worse. So the debatable part is what kind of sin? But in that the verse is talking about sex, it stands to reason that is what they are also talking about.

    Wasn't referring to child molesting, was referring to following of laws in general.

    No...they were saying that bring the young virgins back home, and when they "dance in dances" then the men of the vineyard take then as wives.
    In those days young girls when reaching age would present themselves to be taken as wives.

    That's not true at all. To say anything in that verse is about sex is to completely make something up. Like if I said "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," is about sex.

    The Bible says that an angel is the one who fucked Mary.
