Thread Name: BS: Biblical Quotes Support 'Premarital Sex?
Subject: RE: BS: Biblical Quotes Support 'Premarital Sex?
The Bible SAYS Lot offered his daughters to appease a mob. It later says two of his daughters were pregnant by him. This is in almost all the standard translations. As I said, it doesn't make it a good idea, it just means that awkward stories can be found in the Bible in the versions that many people read! I condemn rape and underage sex, just as most of you do, but it all WAS treaded differently in a major religious text. This explains how some people GET weird ideas. I'm not trying to justify them.
Some of you don't want to even admit these passages even exist or say what they say.
