discipline,




I have noticed an interesting hypocrisy....


When I say to a Christian, "Your Old Testament is a vile and nasty bit, supporting genocide". They inevitbaly say "Well Jesus came and changed all that."


So they claim Jesus "abrogated the Old Testament", yet they still cite the Old Testament when it suits them, like this piece from Leviticus. They happily try to post the 10 Commandments in Courthouses, country-wide.

So they are quite dishonest when discussing these things. Sometimes the Old Testament is out, not to be used, and sometimes it is in, to be applied rigorously.

I wonder if the cognitive dissonance causes headaches.
