Six days or fewer. You have to kill anyone who works on the Sabbath.

RE: Outdated religious laws must be changed
Since you cant force any religion out of existence, this at least is a more civil way of managing it. I really get down on liberals in the west who cant see this growing attitude in Islamic world, far to much of protecting pluralism through censorship will stop things like this which is what the west needs to encourage, not stifle.

I think the reason we only see one-Sabbath disobeyer killed is that the people were in the desert with a pillar of fire by night and a cloud by day (in God's presence).

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

"only see one" - that is enough to discount the whole pile of crap that is the merciful god inspired ramblings.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

You'd just be a bad example.

And a big bag of peyote all the time, from the sound of it...

I don't follow. I mean I don't know what you're saying or trying to prove here.

There were many Israelites and others with them in the desert. Jewish tradition records that only the one person got stoned to death for dishonoring the Sabbath.

I can't be the only person here who understands the difference between disobeying a teacher when their back is turned and when they're watching the classroom.

Were TTA members to protest the capital punishments of the Bible in today's setting, they would be marching and shouting slogans like "One person killed for X law 3,000 years ago is enough!"

I agree.

RE: Outdated religious laws must be changed
Saw a quote on TV recently on why so many Muslims are not registered to vote. The main gist of the Muslims they spoke to was that they felt 'alienated' from the rest of the UK and they attribute this to racism, nationalism and islamophobia... Because there's nothing else going on that would make some people weary of a religion that denounces all violent acts in its name... with a footnote! "Mass murder is terrible and against Islam...but... They shouldn't have drawn those cartoons"

They were also calling for more Muslim candidates to vote for... Personally I would welcome more asian, black & mixed race politicians... As long as they leave their faith at the door.

*dreams on*

Jewish tradition records? Do you mean by that, what was put in the Bible?

Had there been more people stoned to death for that action and various other actions or more fathers cursing their children's lineages, what would be the purpose of that? You put the story in to get the message across to everyone.

What actually are "religious laws" shouldn't be changed?
