    o.k., I give shitstorm a try.

    “Apparently God approves of rape and genocide.”
    Shocking.
    Not.
    It’s very apparent, even if you read only the “first chapter” (Genesis) to realize that. Deuteronomy has some good shit too.

    They killed the women because they spread venereal disease among the Israelite men – they let the virgins live.

    “15 “Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them. 16 “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the LORD in the Peor incident, so that a plague struck the LORD’s people. 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

    They killed non-virgin women because they didn’t know how sexual reproduction worked. If a woman had sex with a man, any child she had in the future, even years later, could be that man’s child.

    Moses would take a class in graphic design, and use some other font than fucking Papyrus.

    God didn’t write the Bible. A bunch of guys from the stone ages did.

    Troll Post. Dumbass didn’t tell you the context.

    This was God’s enactment of revenge against the Midianites for bringing subversion, plague, and war on the Israelites.

    So you approve of revenge, rape and genocide?

    You’re either the troll here or highly immoral.

    I can’t see how it was done because of venereal disease. Yes, Israelite men were having sexual relations with the Midianite (and Moabite) women, but these liasons were regarded as unlawful in and of themselves (the act). The lure of settling down with them instead of with their own women was considered a way that “Israel” would / could be taken away permanently; Israel’s continued existence threatened. Anyway, those peoples in a tribe under the herem (Yahweh war) were to all be killed in the conflict, with no exceptions. Those actually occupying the land these Israelites believed was promised them… Read more »

    out of context, of course. Hipsters can’t bother with actual FACTS when glib t-shirt and poster slogans are so much easier.

    This was their policy when invading the Promised Land, yes. Because they were going to war against tribes whose cultural practices made the Incan heart-rippers and the Anasazi cannibals look like GIRL SCOUTS. These people were the stuff of horror stories for all the neighboring nations, and exterminating them to the last man and subsuming the females into the conquering peoples was the most effective and thorough way to make sure their civilization did not rise again.

    Were those cultural practices worse than the genocide/rape of an entire people?

    Nope.

    Try again.
