I know enough to tell that an ancient text can't be interpreted using language concepts that didn't exist when it was written, and that in order to understand any text, you need to consult the original language, not some word with a 150 year pedigree substituted in for a much more specific concept.Has nothing to do with my comment. This comment also pretty much sums up your Biblical knowledge.
Rather than rail about my ignorance (which is as easy to do for an ignorant person as for a learned one), perhaps you could tell me by what dogma you get to pay close attention to one rule but completely ignore another just half-a-page away.
Not sure how that fits here. Was sex with prostitutes considered licit by religious authorities among the ancient Hebrews?They had prostitutes around correct? Well if that is the case, it pretty much blows your only for breeding scenario clean out of the water.
I'll leave that to religious authorities. They're good at it.Well why don't you cast the first stone?
