ShadowBard Misses Something BIG

A Twitter user named ShadowBard didn’t think this one through:

Actually, a Holy Book that would let you treat slaves any way you pleased and set no limits on such behavior would be unworthy of the term “holy book.”

That assessment, of course, is based on the truth that slavery in biblical times was an employer-employee relationship, not the forced slavery of the African Slave Trade.  Shadow’s assessment is based on the mistaken assumption that the two are the same.

When are atheists going to realize that slavery in the Bible is nonstarter?

  1. Interesting Cory as “employees” are not purchased by “employers” except in cases of SLAVERY. Further the bible gives god’s instructions for selling your daughter as a slave. Exodus 21:7 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2021:7&version=NIV
