Exodus 4:21

{4:21} And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

god will not permit Pharaoh to obey his command.

Pharaoh, predictably, fails to comply.

Spoiler alert: god murders many.

The Dixie Flatline post discusses Bob Hutton’s view of this passage. It’s worth a pass through. I believe it provides a look at mainstream gone cult.

Moral Leadership from Slavers – So Hateful, and So Disrespectful of Life. So Sad.


m1k3ybuddha32 wrote a piece on slavery, Slaving Away.

Referring to christian response to biblical support for slavery, m1k3ybuddha32 wrote:

In fact, it’s so tough that most try to explain it away by saying that biblical slavery is somehow “different” than what we understand slavery to be.

I have to admit, I was surprised at one of the responses. m1k3ybuddha32 was spot on in correctly anticipating the nature of the response, and yet the commenter went so much further.

I come from a long line of racist haters and none of them were so self-righteous, blinded by hubris, and poisoned with a sweet smelling hatred of all those lesser lives on which no real value is placed.

So, from the belief system that brings you feasts of boiled babies and the always entertaining foreskin hunt, I present you with a case for slavery. I have picked the most ripe of the commenter’s trail of cherries.

Slavery is inherently wrong if and only if authority equates with value because, if that is the case, allowing someone to be owned makes them less valuable than their owner.

As abhorrent as you’ll likely find this, I would then argue that slavery is not inherently wrong.

…for the most part, slaves have been treated as though they are inherently less valuable than their masters, and this approach is indeed abhorrent. However, this isn’t a problem with slavery, it’s a problem with slaveowners and their cultures.

In Christianity, inherent authority is independent of inherent value, and therefore it is the Biblical restrictions upon slavery that distinguish Biblical slavery as moral from the immoral, abhorrent way slavery has been done in other times and places.

So hateful and so disrespectful of life.

They Are People! I Fail to Understand the Hatred


I’m doing some reading on the U.S. Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s. It’s both a frightening and positively moving time in history. The treatment of blacks as a lesser form of life was a generations long practice of which there were many proud practioners, even among god fearing christian people.

I read of Eugene “Bull” Connor, who was the Birmingham, AL, Commissioner of Public Safety during that time. I saw period news clips of peaceful black marchers being beaten down with the streams of 100 psi fire hoses. I saw the police dogs Connor ordered released attacking black protesters.

Well, thank god all that is behind us. We have new and bigger problems. There is a new racism afoot. White folks in the U.S. are increasingly being oppressed. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 must be dismantled, surgically at first, so no one will notice. Eventually those with the god given right to rule will do so.

Honestly, that all makes me a little sick. So I offer a stark reminder of where we come from. Those squeamish about offensive racist language should leave now.

I was stunned, and yet it saddens me to say I have no reason to be surprised.

Anyone interested can obtain a copy of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – House Library.

Believe or Burn – I Fail to Understand the Cruelty, Intolerance, Arrogance, Ego, Immaturity, Pyromania, Obsession with Burning People


2 Thessalonians 1:8-9

{1:8} In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
{1:9} Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Malevolent deity, or self-loathing author?

Oh, burning people, causing the burning of people, wanting to burn people, threatening to burn people, having others burn people, is evil.
