"So this guy grabbed a bible and randomly quoted stuff from leviticus."

Pretty much what christians do to try and shove their ideas down your throat as well.

It`s funny Christians don`t know this. Having been raised Jew (no more), I knew all of these for ages.

"People here are anti-religious....so what ???"

And you talk down to me ? (get help with understanding your post) I`m not defending religion on here, I am speaking out against bigotry (a form of hate). If you dont see and understand the difference, you should stand aside and let the adults talk on here. Come back when you`ve figured it out.
Supporting non-belief in religion, and attacking belief in religion, are two different things, in case you haven`t figured that out yet.

I am quite aware of the hivemind on this site, they are so brave.....

So this guy grabbed a bible and randomly quoted stuff from leviticus. How about a quick google research, huh?! Those are the laws god gave to the people of israel. It even says so in the bible. If you`re not an orthodox jew (i.e. a descended of the twelve tribes who originally received this) you don`t have to follow these rules.

Mocking the bible is easy. But if you have never read it and lack a basic understanding of it`s interpretation and intention it`ll make you look like an idiot.

@ lawndartsftw- Sorry if my post didn`t make sense to you. Maybe you can have someone help you with it. If you want to leave out a specific subject and pose your question again you would basically be asking why people visit this site. Debating subjects in the comments is a big part of people frequenting IAB. There seems to be an abundance of anti-religious material and a vocal majority of people that will defend it. SO WHAT! Don`t participate. Simple as that. No one is forcing you. If you make a comment, expect a response that offends your sensibilities. It could be from someone trying to get a rise out of you. Or it could be from someone that simply has a different view of the situation.

Lest anyone misinterpret my last post as an entreaty to commit murder - the entire bloody religion is stupid and a lie. Do not believe any of it and certainly don`t do what it says.

Yes, you have to adopt the whole religion or none at all. That means you will have to go out and murder people for breaking God`s law if the bible tells you to.

@Justahuman-"jinxjinx34-What it means to be Christian is to believe Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead."So, everything else is left up to personal interpretation? That is my point! How stupid is that? This is a doctrine that it supposed to be the word of your god and it is left up to you to decide what it means and what parts to follow. Please tell me you can see that there is something wrong with this. I consider my self to be a good person. I dont steal, cheat on my girlfriend, kill/rape people, ect. I do not however need a rule book to tell me these things are wrong. " If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed. The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge. ... " A. Einstein.

FFS..... The old testament is for the Jews, the New Testament is for everyone else!!!!! HUGE F`ing difference there folks. Did the gentiles make a covenant with god? Nope, that was the jews. So enough with trying to bash the new testament via the old. The new made the old little more than a history book.

Haven`t checked the others, but Lev 20:8 doesn`t mention sports at all. It just says not to break the other rules.

Lol and you ment "By default according to my own interpretation of your rule book....."

Jesus and his followers pick wheat on sabbath this was unholy to the Pharisees,he explained that its not unlawful to heal on sabbath showing that to god mercy is more important than sacrifice (Mat 12:7)Jesus opposed the old traditional laws of the pharisees he brought to light the old testament laws and freed us from them,he explained its not unholy to eat certain food cause its does not matter what we put in our bodies but what comes from our souls(Mark 7:14).

lawndartsftw- Do you fully understand what it means to be "Christian". By default, according to your own rule book ie. the bible, you are the bigot. Bigotry is the all-encompassing term for such things as racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. If you live by the rules put forth by the very doctrine you claim to live by how do you explain yourself? Or are you one of the ones that pick and choose what in the bible to embrace to suit your specific needs?

I`ve never understood the connection between anti-christian prejudice/bigotry and the relief of boredom, the stated purpose of this site.

Maybe someday the mods will put up a feature that explains why bashing people for what they believe in, in as prejudicial and bigoted a way as possible, why that is so cool.....

Jesus explicitly required all to follow the old laws. It was Paul (not Jesus) who said non-Jewish Christians didn`t have to, but some of those letters are known forgeries.

Also, without The Fall and God`s laws requiring sacrifice, the crucifixion is empty.

This is how your thinking is:

Nice to see IAB with another Controversial Christian bashing post. Oh look arguments. It seems one guy actually realized why IAB makes such controversial post, time to try to make him look like a world class idiot.

You, jamie76, are a prime example of what a world class idiot actually is.

And I am guessing this is how your thinking works, "I can;t actually argue against anything they are saying because hey, it IS in the bible after all...I know, I will complain that they are using my religions on words against me again...yea makes total sense!"

actually, it makes NO sense but hey whatever.

"Nope dude. You are still kinda ignorant. The sabbath is saturday in the Old Testament where Leviticus and the 10 Commandments appear. Also, you do know that the Jewish Torah is the Old Testament in the Christian Bible right?

Also, I wouldn`t have called you a world class idiot if I would have noticed your age. You`re just a kid. Ignorance is understood, if not forgiven."

Which is what I said. The Sabbath for Christians is on Sunday, so they should change the name to "8 common Things The Torah Bans."

Is it that hard to understand?

I am not ignorant and know exactly what I am talking about. Maybe you should stop making preconceptions based on my age, and talk to me as if you knew nothing about me. Ignorance is not excusable whether some one is an old WWII veteran or a 1st grader.

Wow are you a world class idiot.

My response

What a nice insult. Not just an idiot, but a WORLD CLASS idiot. Wow, I guess I just moved to a whole new level of foolishness. Thank you, Holy God, for that insightful comment. Next time I will simply just move out of the way for retar-I mean smart people like you.

"Nobody actually believes it said football"

That`s obviously what that pictures intends for the person reading to think. When did the sabath move back to Saturday? Why didn`t this picture target Jews and say "8 common Things The Torah Bans."

HolyGod you are a "World Class Idiot"

"Football is work."
I believe it said watching football not playing it.

"This is the Old Testament! Christians don`t have to follow this!"

The point of this post is to bring up the hypocrisy of certain Christians who point to the Old Testament as proof that God hates gays, and yet completely ignore other instructions such as those shown here.

"Football on saturday? Nonsense, the Sabbath is on Sunday for Christians!"

First off--Old Testament (same place it says gays are bad) places the sabbath on Saturday. I already explained why that`s relevant. Secondly, whether it`s saturday or sunday is moot--I hate sports and even I have heard of sunday night football.

"Football on Saturdays is on there because it violates the Sabbath. Sunday isn`t the actual Sabbath. Do some research on it, that way you can use it to make yourself feel superior to someone else."

The Sabbath, for Christians, is on Sunday. Good to know you like making others feel lower than yourself. Maybe another example of a "World Class Idiot"?

[quote]You really think that God banned a sports game on Saturday when it hadn`t even been invented yet.[/quote]

to say it wasn`t invented is a bit of a stretch (south americans played it to decide on sacrifices - other side of the world but still...)

it`s probably a typo with the reference anyway...if anything it should go back to the pork one (about touching pigskin)

I feel as if the Christian and Atheist on this site are both equally stupid.

The Atheist believe almost anything this site tells them. Like this post for example.

You really think that God banned a sports game on Saturday when it hadn`t even been invented yet. You are forget that the Bible was mostly written by some random rabi who thought they knew right from wrong. Christians believe Jesus IS God and anything he says has 99999x more credibility over anything else in the Bible and believe his word for Leviticus.

Christians on the other hand forget what they believe and take things from the Old Test and use it to bash people. They do the exact opposite of what Jesus says.

I always understood that The New Testament replaced the Old.

It`s a rarely remembered detail but didn`t Jesus even place a recall notice on the Ten Commandments and replace those Ten with only Two:

"Love the Lord God with all you heart, all your mind, and all your soul.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself."

also if i remember my chatechism correctly someone then asked Jesus, "So who is my neighbor?" and Jesus` answer (though I don`t remember word for word) pretty much amounted to *Well, Everybody.*

Seriously how come when someone post this list, none of those Christians who freak out about gay marriage respond?? Where your defense about not following these old testament rules and only freaking out about another? I think its because your priest "talking points" never mention these things and you have no idea whats really in the bible.....

tedgp, depending on what version you use, it says, "...neither shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you..." New International and New Living read, "...Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material..." or "...two kinds of thread..." respectively. So, cotton polyester blends? Not really stretching or relaxing the truth. Good pun, though! :-)
