Today’s religious holiday stems from the bible to include murder and a meal for circumcised men. Yeah, it’s weird.
God was angry with the Egyptian Pharaoh for not releasing Israelite slaves and afflicted punishment in the form of ten plagues. The Passover was plague number ten.
From Sex in the Name of God, Chapter 2: The Penis Pact
Great detail was given about how to select, prepare, and cook a lamb.
Exodus 12 43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of the Passover. No foreigner shall eat of it, 44 but every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it. 45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it. 46 It must be eaten in one house. You shall not carry any of the meat outside of the house. Do not break any of its bones. 47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it. 48 When a stranger lives as a foreigner with you, and would like to keep the Passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it. He shall be as one who is born in the land; but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.”
About this book I’m going to write. I decided that in addition to the Bible, I also better read the Quran.
Having no idea what I was in for, my preconceived notions told me it would be a brutal book about murder and revenge in the form of Jihad, and the horrible mistreatment of women.
I was wrong. The Quran is no more brutal than the Bible.
The Quran was obviously written after the Bible as it goes over some of the same occurrences, and has a lot of the same themes. In comparison, I found the Quran to be not as tedious a read, not as redundant, not as much of the beating of the dead horse. This is probably due to the fact that it is much shorter than the Bible.
Warren: An ironic name for the man who is the leader of people with lemming-like mentalities who breed like bunny rabbits on designated plots of land. Mr. Jeffs continues to lead the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) from his jail cell since he was convicted of child sexual assault. The FLDS are a self segregated group of nuts who dress oddly, have a male hierarchy, and marry too many closely related (and interrelated) women, including having “marital” sex with underage girls, all in the name of God.
