Total b(ia)s[edit]

This article is so far from the truth, that trying to list it's faults and lies would be just impossible. Instead I will just list a few of it's obvious faults:

  1. Confusing literal meaning with halachic tradition: it is ok if you list injustice in the literal meaning of the bible or with halachic tradition, but you cannot mix up between them. Most of the examples given here contradict halachic explanation (for example, lying about virginity is only punishable if it is proven that the girl has cheated while betrothed), while some are (semi) correct only according to halachic interpetation (like the example given earlier about a cheaseburger, only that even according to halacha the bible only prohibits milk and meat cooked together). But what's most disturbing is that according to what's written here the sanhedrin punnished according to these laws, which is simply not true being that the sanhedrin (at least part of the time) followed halacha.
  2. Not every biblical crime has a death penalty: many if not most offenses mentioned here aren't punishable with death, just open up the sources and see for yourself.
  3. Confusing banishment from one's nation with death.

There's much more. — Unsigned, by: / talk

Confusing the fundamentalists[edit]

Discuss how many of the food-restrictions they have violated, and then complain that they are trying to convert you to another religion. (talk) 12:59, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

That borders on tu quoquo. But a good thought. #Can'tComeUpWithACleverSignature 13:12, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Slightly confusing[edit]

I'm inferring that you vote up if you have done it, and down if you haven't. Could use clarification. —Kazitor, pending 06:36, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Some more ones to add to the list[edit]

  1. Carrying grapes from someone's vineyard away in a container (Deuteronomy 23:24)
  2. Not leaving grapes for foreigners (Leviticus 19:10)
  3. Going back to harvest more grain after reaping a harvest or harvesting to the very edges of your field (Leviticus 19:9, Deuteronomy 24:19)

Recent reverted edit[edit]

In this edit,an edit was made changing homosexuality into pediophilia is a sin, which was reverted 29 minutes later. I have seen on Quora and on Got Questions that it actually means pediophilia, but I have not reverted Scream's rollback because these sources can be unreliable. I want to know if these sources can be used, or if they shouldn't. --Andrew5 (talk) 00:11, 29 December 2021 (UTC)
