    I find these interpritations more credable then your mere say-so.
    Well here's other interpretations:

    Page 210 Bottom right. Women's Bible Commentary - Google Book Search


    Genesis 38:12-19 (New King James Version)

    12 Now in the process of time the daughter of Shua, Judah’s wife, died; and Judah was comforted, and went up to his sheepshearers at Timnah, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite. 13 And it was told Tamar, saying, “Look, your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep.” 14 So she took off her widow’s garments, covered herself with a veil and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place which was on the way to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given to him as a wife. 15 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a harlot, because she had covered her face. 16 Then he turned to her by the way, and said, “Please let me come in to you”; for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law.
    So she said, “What will you give me, that you may come in to me?”
    17 And he said, “I will send a young goat from the flock.”
    So she said, “Will you give me a pledge till you send it?”
    18 Then he said, “What pledge shall I give you?”
    So she said, “Your signet and cord, and your staff that is in your hand.” Then he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him. 19 So she arose and went away, and laid aside her veil and put on the garments of her widowhood.
    Joshua 2
    Rahab Hides the Spies
    1 Now Joshua the son of Nun sent out two men from Acacia Grove[a] to spy secretly, saying, “Go, view the land, especially Jericho.”
    So they went, and came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there.
    Solomon’s Wise Judgment

    16 Now two women who were harlots came to the king, and stood before him. 17 And one woman said, “O my lord, this woman and I dwell in the same house; and I gave birth while she was in the house. 18 Then it happened, the third day after I had given birth, that this woman also gave birth. And we were together; no one was with us in the house, except the two of us in the house. 19 And this woman’s son died in the night, because she lay on him. 20 So she arose in the middle of the night and took my son from my side, while your maidservant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. 21 And when I rose in the morning to nurse my son, there he was, dead. But when I had examined him in the morning, indeed, he was not my son whom I had borne.”
    22 Then the other woman said, “No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son.”
    And the first woman said, “No! But the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son.”
    Thus they spoke before the king.
    23 And the king said, “The one says, ‘This is my son, who lives, and your son is the dead one’; and the other says, ‘No! But your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.’|” 24 Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword before the king. 25 And the king said, “Divide the living child in two, and give half to one, and half to the other.”
    26 Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, “O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!”
    But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.”
    27 So the king answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him; she is his mother.”
    28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had rendered; and they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice.

    You noticing a double standard yet? That married men are allowed to have sexual relations with single woman or prostitutes while woman are not because they were considered property.

That would be beyond selfish and contrary to every maternal instinct in her body.

    By punishing the father, she punishes her children too. Two wrongs do not make a right.

    Now stop being so selfish and self-centered and try to look at the reality for just one freaking second. When there are more than two people involved, it's a completely different set of problems you're dealing with.
    You might have a point there. My ex-wife kicked me to the curb. We had two children together. Her reason, according to her was, and I quote, "You are a good man. You are a good father too. But, looking back I don't believe I was in love with you. I thought, in time I could learn to love you but I wasn't able to. I think our marriage was a mistake. I need someone who can emotionally satisfy me." And that was that. She filed for divorce.

    And you are right. She is a crappy mother in MANY ways. But that's just my opinion. And my kids happen to agree with me too. Now, all grown, they can't stand to be around her. When they were younger they HATED it when it was time to go back over by her house. And I felt bad sending them there too. But that's what the court ordered. Shared placement. What could I do. The only way the courts would recognize her as a "bad mother" is if she would beat them, sexually abuse them, or if drugs were involved. Which, none of the three apllied to her. She was just a self-centered bit**. The court doesn't recognize that as being a bad parent up here.

    Yikes, that sounds really awful. But its due to a square and inflexible law system of course. Thats just the way it is, terrible. Who wants to listen to reason these days anyways?

    You haven't cited a double standard *of scripture*, only of people in history.

    I'm not sure how many times this needs to be said, but just because the bible records it, doesn't mean the bible endorses it.

    There have been a lot of arguments and responses in the last 509posts. If you can't substantiate it by reposting or linking to the one of 51 pages with your post then you can't expect anyone to take your position beyond face value.

    Perhaps its your responsibility to browse back and read his arguments rather than complain about him not repeating them in every page..
