You are right. I just commented on the fact that I had heard of this case. I did not click the link because I had read about the case on a news forum. I just read your post and the user info. And if you are stuck up on what a bible is then you aren't much of a scholar.
However, I do disagree with this statement. Yes a law is a law, but the origin of the law or the type of law does make a difference. Well, as far as historians and lawyers are concerned.
Yes, Judo-Christian laws are misogynistic. However, they are a different kind of misogyny. Their society still favors men, but women were not completely without rights. Take this rape case for example (correct me if I am wrong): in Jewish law, the guys would have been punished not the women. It all depends on the situation. He would have been forced to do anything from pay her father a dowry to marry her. you know what, it's still just as bad to base laws on.
In my opinion, just all laws. Take micro evolution or the mechanics of the universe. The bible does not explain these, but science and mathematics do.
So, what drive you from the "fold?" I went to Christian college chalked full of idiots and hypocrite. I am not ready to give up on the supernatural and/or paranormal, but I am done with the Church.
