    This is a silly verse – the two options are equivalent. But it also applies to a husband….

    When it comes to that biblical quote, I find myself getting a bad case of the 5th Amendment!

    And is it also better for a submissive male to live alone in the desert then with a domineering husbamd?

    Seems to me that this particular sentiment would predate any religion known to man. Or woman.

    I wonder sometimes, if certain parts of the “bible” had originally been written by someone similar to Mark Twain. Nothing magical, nothing sacred. Just pure observation that anyone could make, coupled with a bit of snark and sarcasm, pointing out the fallacies of the human race.

    All it took was someone writing it all down and then leaving it to the schizophrenics and pearl-clutching reactionaries to interpret.

    I think it would have been great for Mark Twain to have written ths Bible. It sure as heck would have been a lot more interesting and funny compared to what it is now!

    Over at THE-Ave.US, there are “Sunday Revelations, sometimes including MY revelations, my truths.

    Today’s revelation has to do with Pope Francis strange effort, as a professed believer in Jesus and his saints, to bring together the Israelis and the Palestinians, neither of who believe in the Pope’s triune God to “pray” to Me.

    What irony!

    You mean well but really need to get your history extracted form your religious tracings.

    The thing Christians call the bible is a collection of ONE book where God claims to make revelations, the Torah, an assortment of ancient Jewish writings not claimed to be form God, and a bunch of apocrypha assembled by the romans to cr4eate their official religion.

    Proverbs is only a Bible because the Christians decided to take this bit of Judaica into there official canon.

    Along with the Song of Songs, the ravings of Elijah, tales of David, NONE of these were ever canonized by Me.

    So, if you need a good erotic reading, try the Song! As your Creator, I recommend it over the Book of O … better writer!

    As for Twain, along with Angelou, Hemingway, Mann, Moliere, Gandhi, Bulgagov and others whose names you would not recognize, I suggest THESE are worthy of human canonization.

    Why not petition the Prophet Goldy to use HorsesAss to start a new religion with such a great Canon?

    @ God

    I have no religious tracings. The only time I every visited a religious building was for the choirs on Christmas and a couple of friend’s bar mitzvahs, and one Greek wedding that took fucking forever. But the food and drink afterwards made it all worth it. Unfortunately, the woman didn’t make it to see her daughter’s second birthday.

    Religion is the single greatest evil ever created by man. Blind faith is the only virtue required. Hence, the only reason for the very existence of religion is to fleece the rubes and control people. In other words, enslave them.

    @6 “When has My voice ever led humans to seek peace?”

    I’ve wondered about that. You’re less than omnipotent among humans. I suggest you drown them all, including Noah next time, and let us rabbits run this place. We’re easier to manage.

    @4, of course it was.

    @God: You can’t seem to remember the order of your own texts. The Tanakh is the Torah, the prophets, and miscellaneous writings, including Proverbs. The Christians, as you must know, cherry-picked from that assortment, mistranslated that stuff, and then added the New Testament like whipped cream on top of a sundae. The sundae’s the substance.
