  •  Will post it here, (4.00)
    but right now I'm searching out a resource that has passages catalogued in a usable fashion, so I expect it will take some time, and probably be in several parts. Must wait til' after the holidays to engage in earnest.

    The goal will be to reduce the arguments to a few catchphrases and easily quoted (and backed up) arguments and then to diseminate them for grass roots mainstream reclamation of Christian notions.

    (although I do not call myself a Christian, I LOVE the idea that the most important commandment is "love thy neighbor as thyself", I think that alone if framed properly undoes the rationale for much of the right-wing agenda)

      •  Yes. Thank You. (none)
        I also will be looking at some types of bible "lists" showing for example

        Tax collectors: 24 mentions
        Prostitution: 4 mentions
        Homosexuality: 5 mentions
        Shellfish: 11 mentions

        or whatever, hopefully I can find something that has all that work already done, or I will have to do it myself, either way, when that is found/put together, I will do a statistical analysis, hopefully complete with graphs, pie charts etc...

        Search words "kill+iraqis"  
        Sorry, we found no verses matching your specifications. Try a different search type, or a different Bible version.

        •  If you look correctly (none)
          you will find Jews have a territorial mandate to kill Palestinians.

          Numbers 33:50-53

          50 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,
          51 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;
          52 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places:
          53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

          Nice eh?
