My response to a Christian fundamentalist

I wrote this as part of an online debate with someone who thought that same-sex hand-holding deserved the death penalty, and who said they’d kill themself if the Bible told them they had to. I don’t regret it in the least.

What about the slavery, genocide, and stoning to death of disobedient children? What about unmarried virgins who were raped having to marry their rapists? Do you accept these things?

What about the flat earth? What about bats being birds? What about the implied incest with the children of Adam and Eve?

A life lived according to Biblical literalism & infallibility is a life wasted, a life of squalor, fear, and anger, the death of reason, compassion and fulfillment. It is anti-life, anti-liberty and anti-love. I pity you for your horrifying and destructive beliefs.

Here you can see the assorted musings of a philosophically-inclined, theoretically eclectic anarchist. My blog: a grab bag of hopefully interesting rants, raves, and various other things.

    Thank You! We need to get that out there, not as a way of forcing people to believe it, but more as an option, that there are more ways than one!
