(The Raw Story)   SC candidate for LT. governor proposes ending public education in the state because "we don't see anything in the Bible about state education." Am I the only one who REALLY doesn't want to see his ideas for reforming the judicial system?   (rawstory.com) divider line 53

FTFA: He has encouraged Christian families to withdraw their children from public schools and educate them at home or enroll them in religious schools

Because that IS in the Bible. Right next to "the private market has a solution to everything" and "slavery is okay." Jesus Himself said it on the Mount. Wonderful, blonde haired, blue-eyed Jesus.

The Bible doesn't say anything about lieutenant governors or democracy for that matter, which makes me question why he would want to participate in activities that aren't in the Bible. He is obviously a tool of Satan sent to deceive us, I rest my case.

I knew what you meant, but you need to go back farther... like, oh, say to Abraham. Ask a fundamentalist why Abraham paid a tithe to Melchizedek or why Saul, David, and Solomon were not allowed to be both priests and Kings. Their heads practically explode (even while they're criticizing the Vatican for having a priest as head of state).

Actually, the Bible does say that slavery is okay. It sets out a few rules for treating them, but they're pretty minimal. You can even sell your 12-year old daughter as a sex toy if you need to raise some cash.

Oh, you say, that's the Old Testament. What does New Improved Bible 2.0 say? Paul tells slaves to shut the fark up, obey their Masters and pray to Jebus.

Glen Beck says that the Bible is the only textbook needed on school. It holds the answers to every single question!

I do not believe that it is specified that the rocks have to pointy.

In the many places that the bible instructs you to murder others it certainly does not emphasize clean or quick deaths. In general it goes for slow and extremely painful.

Pretty much the entire OT was written since 600 or so BCE.  And pretty much just by urban intellectuals.  In fact, it is doubtful the sheep-herding phase ever existed in any meaningful way at all.  It was probably just bolted on to make the whole thing look "authentic" - the same way Americans consider cowboys to show authentic Americanness, even though the actual number of cowboys in the American population at any one time has been within a rounding error of 0.  Basically, it was always rigid, power-grabbing priest-class - the sheep-herder shtick was just there to beat the masses over the head with.
