Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I definitely think it's a dangerous area to get into saying we want/should base laws on a religious text.
The interesting thing is that there are again a whole lot of Christians who follow the OT. You might not. You have discounted this from your view point when in fact it should be cinsidered as part of the Christianity we are in disussin about. It is confusing to me how one could pick and choose parts of the Bible,mbut still while younchoose the NT there are others who could come into power and say, wait, we should follow all of christianity. And boy would we all be in trouble. No one would survive. I mean if you are a preachers daughter and you become a "*****" as it says exactly, then you will be burned to death. The starred is the wh re word. It would be doomsday for eceryone because the bible is the ugliest written holy book ever. Its language is everything but inspiring. But the are nonetheless lots of people who follow - christianity.
And i looked and honor killings are against Islam, despite whatever village idiot does. I will keep trying to balance the viewpoints. Somehow other religions do no have much to do with the topic.
I think the best bet ia to be secular and neutral. We do not need burnings of women, sharing of wices with brother in laws, murdering kids, and the like. We are much better than this holy stuff.

i can imagine that if you said 100 years ago a black man would be the potus, people would have feared up like anything because of fear of retribution.
