Bible and Slavery

I was shocked to read this in Wikipedia:

Bible and Slavery

The Bible contains several references to slavery. The Bible nowhere explicitly condemns slavery, but allowed a regulated practice of it, especially under the Old Testament.[1][2] Israelite slaves were to be offered release after six years of service, with some stipulations.[3][4][5] Foreign slaves and their posterity became the perpetual property of the owner’s family,[6] except in the case of certain injuries.[7]

Although slaves were often obtained through warfare in the ancient near east, this seems not to have been a significant source for Israel.[8]

The regulation of slavery in the Bible, and absence of outright condemnation of it as an institution was later used to justify slavery by its defenders.

What kind of people still believe in this non-sense? What kind of a God is this who doesn’t condemn slavery but “regulates” it? And all these deranged zombies converting for a bag of rice, they must be smoking something powerful to fall for the gig. Here is something for enlightenment: www.jesusneverexisted.com

    For four hundred years–from the first Spanish assaults against the Arawak people of Hispaniola in the 1490s to the U.S. Army’s massacre of Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee in the 1890s–the indigenous inhabitants of North and South America endured an unending firestorm of violence. During that time the native population of the Western Hemisphere declined by as many as 100 million people. Indeed, as historian David E. Stannard argues in this stunning new book, the European and white American destruction of the native peoples of the Americas was the most massive act of genocide in the history of the world.

    Bible doesn’t support slavery or any such evil things. Better read bible to know it better than visiting anti-christian and christian hater websites which’ll provide biased views. Thats common sense. I’m tired of reading all these foolish things and your views in your blog about Bible & whats christianity that you steal from such websites and post it here. Its better next time you read a bible before giving such completely false comments.

      This is the kind of scum we are dealing with. On one hand thumping bible and on the other side, lying. Nakli naam leke aaya yahan pe yeh bahadar aadmi. No rules should apply in kicking these arses and showing them their place once and for all. These fanatics reside here but jis thaali mein khaayenge usme chedd karenge. Shameless and dirty animals !

    “Christians are not only the top abusers of children but also the top abusers of Christmas. Besides the “flight into Egypt”, not only the 25th of December as birthday, but the whole Christmas tale the Christians cribbed from Mithras religion” – Jesus’ Bluff: “The Universal Scandal of the World”

    Super Bowl, SEX and Slavery

    Every year, children as young as 11 are trafficked involuntarily to Super Bowl cities. There, football fans – usually men, often inebriated – will pay traffickers to have sex with them.

    The Texas Attorney General estimates these kids have a life expectancy of just seven years from the time they’re first trafficked.

    This year, the Super Bowl Host Committee is charged “to engage in responsible planning . . . to ensure the readiness of North Texas to host the first Super Bowl in the Cowboys’ new stadium.”
    Local anti-trafficking groups have repeatedly offered to help the Committee use its influence to educate fans and the public about the dangers of child trafficking — which could help to prevent thousands of rapes and abuses at America’s biggest sporting event.
    But the Host Committee has refused to take meaningful action. And thousands of children will pay the price.
    Tell the 2011 Super Bowl Host Committee to take a stand against child trafficking.
    In Dallas, a terrific local organization called Traffick911 has created the “I’m Not Buying It” campaign. They’ve offered the Host Committee free PSAs, posters, banners and informational cards to educate the public and protect children from being abused and raped.
    But the Host Committee refuses to display the information.
    The Committee is working hard right now to generate good publicity for North Texas and the game, so public pressure at this moment will be especially powerful.
    Tell the Super Bowl Host Committee that they have a responsibility to protect the children who’ll be trafficked to Texas for the Super Bowl:
