It should be quite well known that morality has changed greatly over the past thousand years. This has occurred pretty consistently. Yet the religious doctrine that governs many of these moral issues has not changed.
So why has the morality of religious believers changed?
The answer is ‘cherry picking’; the art of choosing what you want to obey and do not from a book or holy scripture which in these religions is inherently infallible, based on the social norms and acceptable limits of the society in which the scripture is propagated.
As I am most familiar with Christianity we shall start there.
Here is a short list of religious verses, some of which are acceptable, some are not. All of which are RETARDED.
But remember, all of these are the infallible word of god as passed down to man.
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ.
Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
“If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
And don’t forget Sodom (Aka Sodomy) and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.
The bible also prohibits;
- Eating Shellfish
- Clothing of mixed fabric
- Working on the Sabbath
- Premarital sex
All of these verses can be found with a quick Google search. As is blatantly obvious most of these ‘rules’ set out by god are simply laughable, backward and primitive.
The next big question is;
Do you support a religion which actively encourages slavery and persecution?
If there are any Christians reading this, I beg you to open your eyes to the blatant barbarianism in your religion. Think for yourself, question everything.
