Are Christian fundamentalists apologists for genocide?

Post by Ivan on Fri Oct 21, 2011 12:55 pm

First topic message reminder :

Professor Richard Dawkins has refused to take part in a debate with William Lane Craig, a self-styled philosopher who argues that the Canaanites were debauched and sinful and therefore deserved to be slaughtered.

Most modern preachers wouldn’t defend the instruction in Deuteronomy 20:13-15 to kill all the men in a conquered city and to seize the women, children and livestock as plunder. Verses 16 and 17 are even worse: "When you capture cities in the land that the Lord your God is giving you, kill everyone. Completely destroy all the people."

If Christians take every word of their Bible literally, does it mean they condone mass murder? And if they don’t accept all that’s written there, aren’t they being hypocrites for cherry-picking what they accept and don't accept?

Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Christianity used to do?

Compare the tactics of Islam to those of Christianity when it ushered in the Dark Ages and Inquisition.

Are those tactics and ways not the same and does that not say that all idol worshipping religions, especially Christianity and Islam are evil?

Are Christian fundamentalists apologists for genocide?

Well here's a recent exchange from the thread "Sharia law vs. Christian law" I have linked my post for the page reference, and all posts have dates and times for reference. It seems at least one religious apologist on here is happy to repeatedly be an apologist for genocide, and much more besides, pretty much anything really.

So just to clarify this, do you think rapine, genocide, slavery, and misogyny are morally inexcusable UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES? LINK

God does what is necessay under the prevailing circumstances and has no need or reason to explain the reasons because those who believe in him will know that all he does is for the best interests of his people.

I can justify God doing anything

If God feels that anything is appropriate it is alright with me.
