Re: Biblical slavery
No the Bible does not "sanction" slavery, it treats it as a universal social practice that was so entrenched it had to wait until the culture was more advanced to be able to do away with it.
I think I'll just use this quote in any and all my responses to anyone trying to tell us about the goodness of god, his superior morality and his benevolence and objection to evil practices.
”I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
—Isaiah 45:7, KJV
Je suis Charlie. Je suis Ahmed. Je suis Juif. Je suis Parisien. I am Mancunian. I am Brum. I am London.I am Finland. Soy Barcelona

"Science adjusts it's views based on what's observed.
Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved."
- Tim Minchin, in his beat poem, Storm.
