    Saweet, I was doing it all wrong. I’m assuming, in the absence of wars, I can take nightclubs like Coppers to be the new battleground and any other men there my enemies. What if after all the shaving and nail clipping that see turns out to be a moaning minnie, would there have to be compensation given for hair extensions and stuff?

    As my GF(not from Ireland) asked me lastnight …
    Is it true that Nuns marry jesus when they become Nuns? (brides of christ)
    I replied yes its true…

    She then asked , Is that traditional marriage? where are the kids ?

    Good question ….

        No. And the nun thing is a metaphor/symbolism.

        And on the topic of this post. Old Testament razzle-dazzle like this should be seen for what it is, a curious somewhat-history of the Jewish people. It is certainly far from the last word for Christians. It is, effectively, replaced by Jesus’ teachings in the New Testament.

    “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the lord; even to his tenth generation” Deuteronomy 23:2

    So, in ten generations, there are an estimated 1,024 individuals…. there’s a bastard in there somewhere, so you aint going to heaven. No one is :)

    Deuteronomy Rocks!

    Here are some other reasons why no one is getting into heaven… for one, you’ll have to abandon your family completely.

    Some church hai !

      Actually 2047 individuals (assuming no incest – or 7th cousins). It’s 2 parents + 4 grandparents + 8 ggp + 16 + 32 + 64 + …+ 1024.

    There are references to slavery throughout the Old Testament, e.g;

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    To be fair, the NT and Jesus surplanted the OT, so the old laws no longer apply.

    That’s what the Christians will tell you, anyway. Redefined, yes, but by JESUS.

      Slavery in the New Testament;

      “Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.” (1 Timothy 6:1-2 )

      “The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given.” (Luke 12:47-48)

        A small number of Christians think the old testament is to be taken literally. A vanishingly small figure in Ireland – smaller than the tiny number who, as Hoop has pointed out, have ever read it.

      They CHANGED the testament? Ya can’t do that. Even Jesus. Needta have respect for the traditional testament.
