Similar Deviations
Too many people who don't want gays to get married will yell something like: "Gays are ebil cuz o sodom n gomorrah thats why god destroyed them cuz they were gay'.

No. The book of Genesis never specifically says for what reason they were destroyed. The reason is not specified until Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 16:49-50:

"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good."

In those days, 'abomination' was defined as 'any action that offended God', not 'being gay.' Back then, abomination included eating shellfish, having a disobedient child, and having sex with your wife while she was on her period.

In short, Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed for being gay. They were destroyed for being complete assholes.

Here are 5 commandments that are conspicuously absent from Exodus. The text says nothing about prohibiting slavery, genocide, rape, blind faith, or intolerance. That's perplexing, as it's supposed to be the word of God. Oh wait, it's not perplexing at all because all of these things are whole-heartedly recommended by God soon afterwards!


**UPDATE** June 21st, 2012: I did this piece a few years back and, upon further thought and your own comments, I now realize that the Commandments should be made less vague.
#3 should say "Thou shalt not beat or otherwise torture thy fellow living creatures", and then another one should say "Thou shalt not keep fellow humans as property".
and #4 should say "Thou shalt tolerate others' personal opinions and beliefs".
Those combined with the other three are 6 excellent rules for being a good human being, and they are also contradicted in the Bible. So (once again) fuck the Bible.

Sometimes I wonder, If God really and truly wants to defeat Satan, which almost everyone agrees that he does, why doesn't God just snap his fingers and make Satan not exist? It'd be the simplest freaking thing to do. And no more Satan means no more corrupted humans. Methinks God's in need of the Staples Button.

And you said, morals didn't come from God!




Yeah, another one of those Christian contradictions:
No matter what you do and how many you killed, as long as you repent, you're fine.


It's a quote by Jürgen von der Lippe, a German comedian, but most likely not accurate (couldn't find the original).

Again, like all my recent propaganda, it's released under the terms of WTFPL:
Do what the fuck you want to.

When a theist tells me that it's quite impossible for me to have any form of morality, it makes me want to vomit blood. The sheer lack of social understanding necessary to even begin to say this is astounding.
