The part about beating slaves is an extreme version of spanking children...
And this, ladies and gentlefolk, is one of the reasons Christianity should be reviled.
Fucking disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself. Though it's always entertaining watching a desperate Christian try to hand wave away something like *SLAVERY*.
"Oh, it's all good! At least they had homes and got fed! How great is THAT!? "
That's some lunatic fringe shit right there. Come on big boy, why don't you justify genocide next? Or maybe child molestation? (Mary would have been about 11 or 12 years old when she married Joseph)... Or claiming virgins as spoils of war?
Your make-believe god is a dick. And so are you.
