Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?
in response to reader comment: Old testament is part of your bible

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), May 23, 2008 at 04:38

The Old Testament ALWAYS gave GREAT DETAIL about who, what, where, when, and why a group was to be "wiped out".

These were commanded by God to be "wiped out" because of wonderful activity such as widespread incest, beastiality, pedophilia, child sacrifice to their "god" or "gods".

NEVER, and I repeat NEVER, did the Bible say "kill them because they are unbelievers".
