This is exactly my point.

No it's the opposite of your point. You were claiming that the law was inherently biased, and I asked you for evidence to support that claim (which I note you have not given).




Blimey, my five-year-old cousin has better reading comprehension [*].

I [**] was making the opposite point from you - that the law is inherently neutral on this point (thank you figbash). You now appear to have switched to saying the police are the issue (not the statute itself) but offer no evidence in support.

"Matthew", whoever the author of the canonically first gospel was and the author of James (almost certainly not James), pick up the cudgels and does his best to wipe Paul of the face of the earth. Paul was probably dead by then anyway. Fortunately for the hellenists, (but devastatingly for the Jews) the first Jewish War led to such reprisals against Christian Jews and normative Jews alike that both were decimated, and the hellenistic seeds sown by Paul and others grew unchecked by Roman authorities - until about 105 a.d. ... by then the hellenistic cat was well and truly out of the bag, and the result is, I think, rather good. The cost though to the losing combatants was horrific.

Brush up on your scholarship, boyo.

Do you mean decimated or the other way around(decimated means one in ten killed, I often wrongly use it to mean only a remnant remain i.e. about a tenth)?

As this thread has touched on the subject of slavery, I thought I'd add a nugget of information.

Whatever one may think about the bible's/Jesus's/Paul's teaching on the institution of slavery (and I'm not intending to start that debate here), there are two verses (OT and NT) which condemn the practice of forcible enslavement. (These back up the Church's teaching referred to by Hawk in his post in the middle of page 8 above).

In the list of lawbreakers, ungodly, and sinful in 1Tim1:9-10 Paul includes ' andrapodistais ' who were slave-traders. (Literally 'those who deal in men-footed things') The translation 'kidnappers' that appears in some versions of the bible comes from their practice of forcibly abducting people and selling them into slavery. (If you don't have to pay for your stock, the profit is greater.)

The same practice was forbidden among the people of Israel in Deut24:7

I regret that I'm not going to engage with the main theme of the thread, as I haven't got time to engage in troll-feeding, and I've wasted far too much time reading it. [Frown] It's been a laugh, though.

Anyway, be it as it may, although I would point out that the epistles which you mention do say very officially that the issue was resolved during Paul's lifetime in favor of his views and against the views of Peter.

It's hard though to try and reconstruct historical truth, when all the new testament documents try to obfuscate truth in favor of each author's agenda and propaganda.

... that's called communication, and in the time of the authorship of the documents they were matters often of life and death. By and large the subjective elements of that process of communication are inescapable.

Methinks Angela has been reading Frederick Baron Corvo [Fr Rolfe]'s Hadrian the VII - but probably missing out the longer words as he lacks both the wit and the erudition of that fairly appalling author.

As I got up to pee in the night I was also wondering whether he [Angela] was a sounding gong or a tinkling cymbal but decided he is really more like a pixie farting under a toadstool.

Does it bother you that you're complaining about multiculturalism while being a multicultural person yourself?

Does it bother you that, having attempted to wind other people up, you're getting uptight?

Does it bother you that your reliance on truthiness rather than evidence has been exposed?

Does it bother you that your OP was a complaint about us using religion to justify extremist politics, and yet you're trying to do the same thing (unless you're a group of students having a laugh)? Accusing others of the thing that you're doing yourself is straight from the BNP/CCB playbook, isn't it?

1Tim1 refers to "menstealers". This must mean people who steal other men's slaves, and by extension those who oppose slavery as a system. As the 10 commandments say: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour's.

Intriguingly modern versions have "slave traders" (NIV) or "enslavers" there. I think it probably refers to piratical practice of kidnapping people and selling them as slaves.

"Must"? "Must"? That's a very strong word to use to describe an interpretation of a verse that's so far off the wall that even the most looniest of loonies would have difficulty even contemplating that as a valid interpretation. Afterall, the author of Timothy could have chosen a number of other words to describe people who take the property of others ... "thief" would be the obvious one!

quote:

Even if the totally idiot interpretation you presented could be justified, the extension doesn't necessarily follow. Any more than you can say that if someone nicks your car they're obviously in opposition to the system of private ownership or campaigning for better public transport.

Why "must" that be the interpretation?

Oh right, because you want it to be. Because that interpretation allows you to pursue your hate-filled racist agenda.

Don't be silly - why would you think Angie would listen to a modern translation, (or the original text - 'cos it's in forin' and so obviously it's inferior)? Didn't you know that anything other than the garbled KJV is a work of satan?

In that vein, did the KJV just make up the word "menstealers" or was it in use at the time? Can we know what the translator was actually talking about?

I looked up 1 Timothy 1:10 in multiple translations at Bible Gateway.

The word is translated as 'slave traders', 'enslavers', 'menstealers', and 'kidnappers'.

I have been reading the inane crusading ramblings of AngriTroll Beta v2.009 with great delight and watching with amazement the systematic demolition of the vague arguments laced with "truthiness" (Thanks Alwyn), and for some time now have been content to watch other people poke holes in the wet paper bag holding his/her arguments. However, the time has come for me to weigh in on the slavery issue.

quote:
1Tim1 refers to "menstealers". This must mean people who steal other men's slaves, and by extension those who oppose slavery as a system.

Well...no. This MUST not be anything of the sort. How do you make the link between "menstealers" and opposing slavery? Wouldn't that mean that "menstealers" would be freeing the slaves rather than kidnapping them to be sold as slaves to another person? Because that doesn't make sense if they opposed the very institution they endeavour to make a quick profit from.
Menstealing is clearly defined as
quote:
'slave traders', 'enslavers', 'menstealers', and 'kidnappers'.
(Thanks Moo)
So you see, your argument is proved baseless by your own words [Smile]

"Slaves" are owned. "Servants" (manservants or maidservants) are hired/employed. So the Commandment you are quoting doesn't apply to "slavery", but "servants". The operative word is "stealing" which is not "coveting". The stealing is dealt with in another Commandment. Look it up.

Oh, and just a teensy little hint...If you are going to "interpret" scripture (which you have obviously done), at least refer to it as your interpretation, or what you believe the scripture means, rather than purporting it as fact. Because that just makes you appear loony.

Wrong, heathen! The KJV fell out of Jesus' pocket as He ascended. He'd very helpfully written out His words in red, too.

I'm not an atheist. But don't let what I say stop you. If you were to actually engage with what I'm saying, then things might get uncomfortable for you. Do carry on.
Squiggle, I wouldn't engage with you if you were the last man on earth and presented me with the Hope Diamond on a ring. You're not my type. I might be able to forgive my partner for being male, but I will never, no never, marry someone who claims they can read my mind and tell how firm my beliefs are.

Unlike yourself, other people having differeing opinions doesn't make me uncomfortable. The only thing that really makes me uncomfortable are high heeled shoes and too-tight underwear.

Oh, wait, is that the kind of 'engagement' you want? Because in English, that's actually called a 'scene'. It's not my kink, but I can get you some web links, if your Google-fu has failed.

Can I make a basic point? Jesus was not an Englishman. He may have spoken in foreign, but our own church has spoken to we Anglo Saxons in our own Nordic tongue and the KJV is the greatest gift the CofE has made to the English nation.

Dear beloved brethren,

I have posted here to explain a few things to you in the hope the Holy Ghost would move you to repentance. The message is simple - the Christian religion should teach today the same things that were taught hundreds of years ago in this country. Why should things be updated?

The catechism of the BCP - I nearly wrote BNP by accident!! - plainly states the Christian religion. Anything beyond that is wrong. Please read and take it to the Lord in prayer.

Because for hundreds of years the Christian religion has been teaching falsehoods that did damage to the people upon which they were imposed?

Dearly beloved brethren,

I have posted here to point out some things to you all and urge you to repentance. The CoE should teach the same things it has always taught. Some of you, at the urging of the Devil, have mocked me for being Anglican1009, but what difference should there be between the teaching of Ecclesia Anglicana in AD 1009 and today? None at all, I should hope.

Please study the catechism of the BCP prayerfully and everything will become clear. Put away the Phariseeism general on this site and approach the Lord in sincere prayer.

The very first BCP was published in 1549, after a fairly major bit of theological revision called the Reformation.

So I guess the only question is, if you're so keen on keeping things the same from way way back to now, why are you idolising such a modern heretical upstart of a book?

It's that Nordic tongue of his, makes things terribly confusing...

But aren't you thrilled that we have gone from "Ship-of-Twits" to "beloved brethren"? It's just so beautiful when repentance happens.

Damn. I thought I had gotten most of the-devil-is-behind-everyone-who-disagrees-with-me types out of the Anglican communion.

So, Anglican2009, what would the church have to do to convince you to leave? I'm sure someone's got some raisin cakes stashed somewhere.

I fear it is not altogether spoken in a language understanded of the people.

Sorry Anglican-anus: petards are so unpleasant.

Goodbye and thanks for the memories. I'm sure the BNP - oops I meant to type BCP - will enjoy your full attention once again. Look out for pieces of twisted metal on your journeys.

Nordic tongue? If you're reading a Scandinavian translation that might be the problem. Hint: Find a Bible written in English - you might find it helps your comprehension.
