  •  And I didn't say the Bible is anti-slavery (0+ / 0-)

    Of course slavery was a fully accepted practice of the day in almost every part of the world including the Middle East. I'm not sure how many people could imagine a world without slaves.

    You may be confusing "Biblical infallibility" with "Biblical literalism." In reformed (i.e., Protestant) Christian parlance, the former indicates the belief that the books gathered together into the Old and New Testaments comprise an oeuvre inspired by God through which one can begin to grasp the many dimensions of living in relationship with God (for those who are drawn or called by God; in Matthew, Jesus explicitly notes the existence of non-God people without judgment). The latter of course means all that silly bullshit Biblical literalists believe because poetry and allegory are not concrete enough for them.

    Fight them to the end, until the children of the poor eat better than the dogs of the rich.
