Well, concubines never seemed like such a completely bad idea…

Via Claire, it seems that Chick-fil-A guy’s mouth found another way to get him into the news.

“We support Biblical families, and they’ve always been a part of that.”

Claire wants to know just what he means by “Biblical family.”

I mean, multiple wives and concubines … fine if all the consenting adults are … consenting. But buying wives, having sex with slaves (or your daughters), threatening to sacrifice kids on an altar, offering to let a mob rape your daughters, and sending your unwanted children out into the desert …

Yeah, that Bible thing’s got a lot of entertaining things to say about families – and a few horrifying ones. Doesn’t leave you all that clear on just what God wants, since it was the good guys doing all those things.

Except we can all agree that gay guys are right out. Right?

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    What about an exception for gay concubines?

  2. Joel says:

    As I recall, Matt, the Bible never really goes there. It’s got lots to say about gay men, and most of it involves death sentences. But it leaves lesbians completely unmentioned.

    Thus bolstering my theory that God really is a guy.

    I recall the New Testament to be the deal that supersedes much of that old Talmudic and Sanhedrin stuff that is sort of the foundation of the Old Testament. Jesus didn’t have much to say about gays specifically. He also hung out with prostitutes and told people to carry swords….. to sell their clothes to buy a sword, indeed. Didn’t mind a bit of the drink now and then(not that this is my thing anymore). had a kind of easy going, live and let live vibe. My kinda guy.

    Romans 1:26-27, Joel.

To the stake with the heretic!
