Telling me "you're just wrong" is an ineffective counter argument!
Prove your point to me!

I utterly disagree with all religious absolutists about the absolutism of their faith, no matter what particular stripe it may be, PERIOD!

Now this is what we should consider a true Christian! Let's follow that Bible to the letter! No picking and choosing! How many people have you killed for working on the Sabbath (Exodus 35:2)? How many for eating shellfish (Lev.11:10)? How many men have you executed for cutting their hair around their temples (Lev. 19:27)? Can I purchase your daughter as a slave (Exodus 21:7)? I need a breeding pair, maybe I'll just buy some Canadians or Mexicans (Lev.25:44).

It's sad that you can't enjoy pork barbeque, bacon, ham, pork chops(dead pig), or play football (dead pigskin) (Lev. 11:6-8)! Hope you don't wear glasses, otherwise you can't approach God's Altar (Lev. 21:20)! I could go on but why bother, everyone gets the idea. If you take the Bible literally you have to follow all these rules. You can't just pick the ones that you like. PS One thing I always wanted to ask a person like you. If God only made Adam and Eve, then they had Cain and Abel, who got married to two women, where the heck did these other two women come from? No mention of God making them in the Bible.
