The Alabama christian strikes back



Proudly in Alabama and SAVED by the Lord's grace! says:

The Bible specifically says the death penalty is to be applied in certain cases as punishment for horrific crimes. These babies committed no crimes, unlike the long line of child-rapists and murderers sitting on death row.

Applying the death penalty is definitely killing, but it is not murder. Murder is non-justified killing (i.e. one person killing another out of petty personal rage, which is a sin). The death penalty is justified since God specifically commands that it be carried out (and gives the specific crimes for which it is to be done). The Bible is God's word, and God is perfect and makes no mistakes, hence there are no contradictions in the Bible...and any "interpretation" thereof which would lead to there being contradictions is therefore logically incorrect on its face (something you'd know had you actually read a Bible before spouting off about it - or had an IQ higher than a pop-tart).

You think silence would be better than this sign, which is a form of protected peaceful speech and an expression of conscious objection? Who would you have to be an advocate - a non-violent voice - for these babies which have done nothing wrong, and are defenseless, yet are killed anyway?

My response:

"The Bible specifically says the death penalty is to be applied in certain cases as punishment for horrific crimes"

Yeah, like

If you are gay - Leviticus 20:13
If you are a rebellious child - Deuteronomy 21:21
If you are a "false" prophet - Deuteronomy 13:6
If you try to entice your family to "worship other gods" - Deuteronomy 13:8-9
If you are a stranger and tell people to "worship other gods" - Deuteronomy 13:15-16
Practice magic - Leviticus 20:27
Drink Blood - Leviticus 7:27
If you don't get your son circumcised - Exodus 4:24-26
Needlessly slaughtering innocent CHILDREN - Exodus 11:5
If your son hits and curses you the bible says you should kill them - Exodus 21:15

And God decides to kill everything on earth for no particular reason - everything from newborns to Koala Bears - Genesis 7:21-23

There are over 900 instances of cruelty and violence in the bible. And yes in the New testament too. It would take me all night to type out every single one. So the question is, what are you doing in the 21st century reveling in a book that is so violent?

I honestly typed that out before even reading about his "pop tart" comment. I don't think he has room to talk. If he believes that the earth was flooded and covered with water and that the earth is only 6000 years old.
