Baud Bits just did a video on Ray Comfort
Ray Comfort The Skeptic, a part of which I wish to highlight here.
On Wednesday, March 26, 2014, the following was posted on the On The Box blog.
Words of Comfort: Bond-servants.
Skeptics are often angered by the biblical practice of having a bond-servant (a slave). They presume that “slavery” automatically means tremendous cruelty with chains and whips–because of the history of American slavery.
However, a bond-servant in scripture was someone who found themselves in debt, and they worked off their debt. We don’t do that in America. We think we know better. We throw people into jail. So the person who lost the money doesn’t get it back, and the person in debt goes to jail. At present the United States has over 1.5 million people in prison, at a cost of over $31,000 per prisoner per year.
Perhaps I’m wrong. Perhaps Ray is making a case for better science education. Yet, it really seems to me that Ray is arguing for a return to his version of biblical slavery.
Naw, can’t be. Not even banana air-sex wacko Comfort is that dumb. Right?
