Every thug need a lady.

Century of the Common Iowan links to a great post about some of the goofy sex related passages in the Old Testament. Not only is the Christian bible arguably the most genocidal book ever written, it’s also chock full of equally extreme marital advice. Some of my favorites:

A. Marriage in the United States shall consist of a union between one man and one or more women. (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5)

B. Marriage shall not impede a man’s right to take concubines in addition to his wife or wives. (II Sam 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron 11:21)

Big pimpin’!!

The truly hilarious part can be found in the comments section:

Laughable….liberals are pretty selective on their use of the Old Testament. Don’t forget Leviticus, what does it say about a man lying with another man?

Laughable, indeed!

More advice they wont listen to.

Not gonna happen because when you say to a neo-Confederate that they can’t use public schools to promote Christianity they characterize that as an attack on their religious freedom. If you call someone out for being a bigot you get labeled as an elitist. In the case above, the neo-Confederates will interpret Powell’s words as an attack on Limbaugh’s freedom of speech.

An actual Indian speaks about Mumbai.

While the fringe-right has decided that the most important topic of discussion regarding the terrorist attacks in Mumbai is semantics (the conflict wasn’t described sufficiently enough as an all out HOLY WAR), Arundhati Roy, an actual Indian, gives us a little background on the situation as well as a critique of the media’s characterization of the event as “India’s 9/11”.
