The Bible and the Fictional God's Hatred of Fetuses and Babies
"God's gonna getcha," is the staple of the Pro-Lifers (religiholics). I, for one, am getting pretty fucking sick of these people failing to use their god or their bible correctly! They have obviously not read the book that gave rise to their god or they would know that their god is totally pro—choice; well, except for the choice part, but he's definitely pro—abortion. So here we go. Here are some of the relevant bible verses dealing directly with either baby hatred or fetus hatred:
a. “And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.” (Genesis 38:24, KJV)
· Burn the pregnant woman!!!
b. “Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell; 22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. (Numbers 5:21-22)
“And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter. 25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar: 26 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water. 27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. 28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.” (Numbers 5:24-28)
· Give the woman a magic potion that causes her to miscarry!!!!
c. “And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. 12:14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.” (II Samuel 12:13)
· God is pretty OK with you, and he won't kill you...buuuuuttt, because you've made it easy for people to speak ill of God he is going to kill your baby.
d. “Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. 16 And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD, as he was commanded.” (Numbers 3:15-16)
· Only boys greater than or equal to 1 month of age are considered people according to god. Girls aren't people until later.
e. “And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? 16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD. 17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 31:18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.” (Numbers 31:15-17)
· Kill all of the baby boys!!! Kill all of the women who have had sex (some of which might be pregnant)!!!!! Keep all the little girls for yourselves!!!!!!!
f. “Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.” (Hosea 9:14)
· Make the women miscarry!!! Make them not lactate!!!!
g. “Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.” (Hosea 9:16)
· I will kill their baby!!!!!
h. “Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.” (Hosea 13:16)
· Kill the babies!!!! Kill the pregnant women!!!!!!
So, I ask Christians this:
· Where in these verses is the "sanctity" of the unborn's life?
· Where is it indicated that life begins at conception in your god's eyes.
Your god doesn't think a baby is really alive unless:
· It is a boy, and
· It is a month old.
Girls are apparently lifeless until sometime after the 1 month mark, and in other verses it's shown that girls are worth less money than boys.
· Why does your god hate women and babies?
Why am I for choice? Because it's none of my fucking business what another woman does with her body, nor should it be your business or the business of any government to tell a woman that she cannot do something with her body. So, stay the fuck away from the uterus that isn't yours and shut the fuck up. And please stop using your misogynistic, baby hating god as a defense for your stupidity!!!
