Bible Drawn Into Sex Publication Controversy

Bible drawn into sex publication controversy

 

Wed May 16, 8:25 AM ET

 

More than 800 Hong Kong residents have called on authorities to reclassify the Bible as "indecent" due to its sexual and violent content, following an uproar over a sex column in a university student journal.

 

A spokesperson for Hong Kong's Television and Entertainment Licensing authority (TELA) said it had received 838 complaints about the Bible by noon Wednesday.

 

The complaints follow the launch of an anonymous Web site -- you are not allowed to post links yettruthbible(contact admin if its a beneficial link) -- which said the holy book "made one tremble" given its sexual and violent content, including rape and incest.

 

The Web site said the Bible's sexual content "far exceeds" that of a recent sex column published in the Chinese University's "Student Press" magazine, which had asked readers whether they'd ever fantasized about incest or bestiality.

 

That column was later deemed "indecent" by the Obscene Articles Tribunal, sparking a storm of debate about social morality and freedom of speech. Student editors of the journal defended it, saying open sexual debate was a basic right.

 

If the Bible is similarly classified as "indecent" by authorities, only those over 18 could buy the holy book and it would need to be sealed in a wrapper with a statutory warning notice.

 

TELA said it was still undecided on whether the Bible had violated Hong Kong's obscene and indecent articles laws.

 

But a local protestant minister shrugged off this possibility.

 

"If there is rape mentioned in the Bible, it doesn't mean it encourages those activities," said Reverend Wu Chi-wai. "It's just common sense ... I don't think that criticism will have strong support from the public," he added.

Salaam,

 

Classify history books (piles of dead naked bodies, torture and abuse, rape and sexual assault in holocaust and slavery texts)

 

Better ban law books as they have a lot of graphic sexual cases (especially in criminal law).

 

Get rid of all art. (Classic pictures of naked Greek Goddesses are obviously pornography.)

 

No more Shakespeare (the rape of Lucrezia)

 

No more psychology texts (after all, Freud discussed the Oedipus complex)

 

Definately remove all classics (I can't think of one not about incest, rape, sex, fighting or war)

 

Yup, I can see how the Bible is uniquely dangerous and will copy everything that happened in it. Biblical genocide, coming to a street corner near you....

 

Peace and Love,

Biblical Pornography:

 

"Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of ######, and whose issue is like the issue of horses." (Ezekiel 23: 19-21)

 

"and lusted after her paramours there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose emission was like that of stallions." (Ezekiel 23: 21, NRSV)

 

Comment

The story of the sister whores, Aholah and Aholibah gives a moral lesson against the sins of the flesh. But why does God have to describe their adventures in such pornographic detail? Does God love ######?

 

What parent would want their children reading verse 21 about comparing the size of men's penises to donkey genitals and the sperm flow to that of horse issues?

 

As any adult religious parent might believe, such lustful descriptions, if culled from secular sources, would corrupt children should they happen to read them. Should it not also corrupt children if read from the Bible?

 

Eat Human Feces!

"And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight. And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them." (Ezekiel 4:12-13)

 

Comment

How many good Christians today realize that their God has coprophilic tendencies?

 

One wonders what nutritional or moral value it would serve the people to eat human feces with their bread, as God ordered. God here has also ordered the voyeuristic operation without explanation. Although in verses 14-15 the poor israelites complain about eating abominable flesh, God (in his "wonderful" grace) changes his mind and allows them to substitute human feces with cow feces. Gee, thanks a lot God! (as if eating cow excrement makes much of a difference). You'd think the Creator of the entire universe might have given his "chosen ones" a soufflé or a bagel or something. Please, anything better than ####-cakes! One might also wonder: how can an all-knowing and perfect God (but a scat-God nevertheless), change his mind?

 

Boil and Eat Your Son

"And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son...." (II Kings 6:28-29)

 

Comment

According to the Bible, a horrible famine took place in Samaria where in desperation, the people ate whatever they could. The cannibalistic eating of a son may provide sufficient nutrition for a mother but disregards the puissant nature of humans to protect their young. Although the Bible does not explain if the son had already died or if the parent deliberately killed him for food, this dreadful example goes against human nature.

 

Long before bibles or written language, humans evolved as social animals that required the protection of their offspring. Only the dogmatic insistence of a belief-system could supersede the natural instincts of humans. Hopefully readers of the Bible who might one day experience a famine will not subvert their natural instinct for this kind of horrific example in Scripture. May I suggest that if you cannot control your belief to eat your children, sacrifice your priest and eat him instead; that way you gain far more protein for you and your children, and when you say grace, you'll have someone to really thank for your food.

 

Howl And Strip Naked

"Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the owls." (Micah 1:8)

 

Comment

The minor prophets felt influenced from Isaiah and these words of Micah indicate that he would imitate Isaiah's nudist actions as an adjunct to his prophesying.

 

Picture in your mind a religious man of today stripping and running around totally nude and prophesying in public, wailing and hooting at the top of his lungs. No doubt the police would snatch him up in a second while citizens stare in embarrassment. It just goes to show how far we have demeaned ourselves and our bodies as shameful.

 

Conclusion:

 

The entire Bible is corrupted and unreliable and is mostly filled with man-made laws and corruption! "`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"

 

The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"

 

In either translation, we clearly see that the Jews had so much corrupted the Bible with their man-made cultural laws, that they had turned the Bible into a lie!

Salaam,

 

Yawn, see countless posts on how Bible is different in structure than Quran. Quran is an instruction manual written all at once. The Bible is history, law, myth, instruction, art, song, prophecy written over hundreds of years.

 

Suggest you do the most basic overview research before attempting critical articles. Wikipedia is normally pretty good for overviews.

MY RESPONSE:

 

The God of the Bible allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).

 

This type of criminal behavior should shock any moral person. Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse can not be justified by saying that some god says it’s OK.

 

Slaughter Of Innocents

"And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain." (Deuteronomy 2:34)

 

"And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Hesbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city. But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities we took for a prey to ourselves." (Deuteronomy 3:6-7)

 

Comment

Such words helped give justification to mediaeval Crusaders who slaughtered men, women and children along their way to Jerusalem and stole the spoils of the cities. Even today, many Christian military men use Scripture to justify their actions. If any soldier harbors doubt about killing his fellow humans, he need only consult a military chaplain or read the Bible to calm their worries. Even George Bush (the First), with Billy Graham beside him, proclaimed the Gulf War as "moral." George Bush (the Second) continued in his father's steps by killing thousands of Iraqi civilians in the Iraqi war. Such moral wars result in thousands of "utterly destroyed" innocent men, women and children.;

 

(For a few more examples [but not all] see also Deuteronomy 3:3, 7:2, 20:16-17 , 25:19; Joshua 6:21, 8:26, 10-28-40; Numbers 31:17-18; I Samuel 15:3; Isaiah 13:16; and Hosea 13:16)

wow ###### if those quotes are true, then i am shocked.. it's truely seem to be word of corrupted human evil, it cant be word of God... like this "Eat Human Feces!

"And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight. And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them." (Ezekiel 4:12-13)"

 

This makes clearly sense, that someone really got pissed and changed the bible and though that time humans were so dumb they will believe whatever they say and tell them eat sh... because it's order of God..

the worse thing is now, even thoug people are more advance and they still believe in this.. well human will always be human..

If those quote are true then it's clear that the bible is definitly corrupted as said in Quran..

My response:

 

The quotes are true. You can check them by using the Bible.

 

For example:

 

Ezekiel

 

4:10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.

 

4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.

 

4:12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

 

4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.

Yeah, and there's nothing questionable in the Quran right (all on another thread so no point repeating)

 

Not sure why you're all so scared of sex anyway, you shouldn't be so ashamed of your bodies. Why for example are you not allowed to look at other mens bodies? Is it because you have very small private....

thoughts, or little self control that it might turn you to the bat for the other team?

 

Come on though, seriously, it's got to be down to insecurity on soooo many different levels.

 

Anyhoo, I'm just off for a swim at our local pool, I best go blind folded, all that evil naked flesh, some of it belonging to <shriek> women...

Doesnt the Qur'an adocate murder of apostates and adulterers?

Doesnt it also say to mistrust Jews and Christians and to kill polytheists whereever you find them?

Doesnt it go into detail about how God will torture unbelievers with burning flames?

 

Plz, if they put a little warning on the Bible then just about all history and holy books should have the little warning.

 

And ######, if you believe morally questionable acts consitutes as human corruption then I suggest you pick a different religion. Only I know of that doesnt have any is Buddhism.

 

Enjoy

 

I believe that Islam is the truth of God and I am a Muslim in this World and hereafter. Please show me the Quranic verses that you have mentioned above. Buddhist monks all reject worldly goods and practice because they have forgotten that they are living in this World. Buddhist monks don't understand about the basic worldly needs of all human beings.

So what if there's sex in the bible, get this - sex happens. If it didn't we wouldn't be here (do you need this explaining?) The bible mentions sex because God made sex possible. Why should it not be mentioned? Why brush it under the carpet and make it shameful when it's the most natural thing in the world.

Salaam,

 

######, chill a little, you're getting hysterical.

 

Muslims, perfectly correctly, remind non-Muslims on a regular basis not to take verses out of context. To give an example, you seem quite upset about Ezekiel ch4. It's not a law book, it's a book of prophecy. In ch4, the siege of Jeruselum is being symbolised, hence the rationing and shortage of fuel. The instruction is not to cook food on human excrement, it is a prophetic description a siege. May I suggest that you check future references on any of the various sites on the internet? Biblegateway(contact admin if its a beneficial link) is normally pretty good.

 

There is plenty in the OT books of laws which is completely unacceptable today. We don't adhere to it because we no longer need to, Jesus fulfilled those laws. But really, my point it that if you are distressed by aspects of the Bible and wish to use examples you'd be much more convincing if you looked at the texts of law rather than the ones of prophecy, history or song. Again, I repeat (as I fear it still hasn't been taken in), the Bible is a wholly different text from the Quran and cannot and should not be read in the same manner.

 

Provide me an oppressive law from the OT *not* cancelled out by Jesus and the discussion would be far less superficial.

 

BTW, I assume, on the basis that Sister Truth has set up a topic about discriptions of hell, that it is described in the Quran in detail. Those details would probably be about as suitable for child consumption as some of the histories in the Bible.

 

I do think that the continued publication of most religious texts (again, Buddhism seems to be exempt) is an argument for freedom of speech. In areas of all of them there are certificate 18 scenes, lines advocating violence and most tend to stick in a 'kill the ____' somewhere along the line. As I would not want the Bible banned on the basis of offence, and you can be sure others are equally offended by the Quran and Talmud/Torah in my view that's the reason why we should allow as much freedom of speech as possible. I do like the way that HK residents are proving this point. The text isn't the problem, the crazy person who reads it is and there's no need to punish (by a ban) the majority for the sins of the one or two crazies.

 

Peace and Love,

 

DARLA

Its called using a similar situation to prove your pt. Your (offtopic arguement btw) is based on taking verses of the bible out of context and saying because God's actions are questionable then the religion + text is corrupted. I gave you the same example using the Qur'an. Only holy texts I know that dont have anything questionable in them are Buddhists texts and (ironically) the Satanic Bible.

 

Now you have two options a. to agree with me and so both are wrong (Id agree with this one) but as you have much vested into the muslim faith I assume youll simply have to find another way to discredit a religion.

 

Back ontopic.

 

I think the little warning is a good idea and should be implimented for all religious texts. In reality I know it would be redundant as kids would be shown nasty bits at home, but my conclusion is because kids are threatened at schools and certain learning centers to comply or else.

 

If I came up to a child on the street and told em if he doesnt do what I say I would burn him, I would go to jail. Regardless if I meant it or not. This what alot of these religious schools do, they tell children if they dont behave how they want then god will hurt them in some manner.

 

So then restricting the texts to 'light' versions for school use and disallowing teachers and mentors to threaten via God will keep children from being coerced thru fear.

I am surprised to see you saying that ' Wikipedia is normally pretty good for overviews '. How can Wikipedia become ' normally pretty good for overviews ' when it contains the words such as ' This section does not cite its references or sources' and 'This list is incomplete' and 'The neutrality of this section is disputed' etc ?

I am scared when the Bible asks the Christians to rape, murder etc! For example:

 

Raping And Killing

"Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." (Isaiah 13:15-16)

 

Comment

These verses foretold the deaths of the people of Babylon. Fortunately not everyone in Babylon (now modern Iraq) fell by the sword or had their children dashed to pieces or their wives raped (just another instance of errors in the Bible). How some people who believe in an infallible Bible can accept these verses as God inspired, or morally uplifting can only give evidence to the blinding nature of belief. For if we believe these words as God inspired, then the killing of children and the raping of wives must also come as an inspiration from the Supreme Being.

 

No wonder so many women are being raped in USA! Just look at the US crime statistics! SHOCKING! And I am not surprised to see the brutal American soldiers who are mostly Christians rape and murder the defenseless and innocent Muslim girls and women in Iraq etc. Is it manly for Christian soldiers to rape and murder innocent and defenseless women and girls? Only cowards do that to the defenseless and innocent women and girls!

pornography–(noun) obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, esp. those having little or no artistic merit.

 

2) American Heritage Dictionary -

pornography - Sexually explicit pictures, writing, or other material whose primary purpose is to cause sexual arousal.

Salaam,

 

(paraphrase) "The Bible tells Xians to rape and murder"

 

######, I'm going to do this by numbers so you read what is read:

 

1. The Bible is not all instructions.

 

2. The Bible is not all in the imperative.

 

3. The Bible is not all "do this".

 

This means not every line, verse, chapter or book is in the imperative, much is descriptive. An imperative phrase is one which is an order or instruction. For example, 'Go there', 'eat this', 'judge not'. Must of the Quran is in the imperative because it is God instructing humanity. Much of the Bible is NOT in the imperative as it is not recitation, it is a very, very, very different type of text to the Quran.

 

I really don't know how else I can explain this, your reluctance to understand seems wilful. Please tell me which part of it you don't understand and I will try and find another way to explain it.

 

 

Concerning the more minor point on wikipedia, three things:

 

1. the warnings only appear on some of the pages, the vast majority are clean

2. Every source in the world is biased, the joy of wiki is one can see the origin of that bias and take it into account when reading it (by the discussion page).

3. a survey by Nature (a science publication) found wiki to be only very slightly less accurate than the Encyclopaedia Britannica: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetnature(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/news/2005/051212/full/438900a.html"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetnature(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/news/2005/051212/full/438900a.html[/url]. So Wikipedia is almost as accurate as a document which may be used in a court of law.

 

If you had followed my suggestion and looked up the wikipedia page on the Bible it immediately becomes apparent that it doesn't have any of the warnings on it. Before you attempt further Biblical criticism, I would suggest you read the page:

(you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Bible"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Bible[/url] so you have an idea of how the Bible is constructed.

I don't think what is written in the Bible is obscene, but then obscene to one may not be to another - for instance I find the stoning to death of adulters to be against reason and god and therefore obscene.

And I don't know anyone who gets sexually aroused while reading the bible.

Therefore I don't think the bible is a "pornographic book", that's on the same level as me saying the Quran is a murderous evil, hoodwinking a third of the globe with hocus pocus.

Quite a pretty little table.

 

Freeasabird, I agree with your analysis. The purpose of ###### is to cause arousal. We don't consider a lot of classic art to be ###### because its purpose is art, not ######. Debby does Dallas, on the otherhand, will never be considered art (if it ever is, please kill me) because it it's primary purpose is arousal. Can't really see anyone getting aroused by the Bible (unless they have a fetish for King James English)

And also upon you

 

I don't know what you trying to say with "all at once" here, but the Qur'an wasn't written in one day, not even a year, it was written/revealed over 23 years. I don't know what you really meant by the the words, but I just wanted to correct you, if you just in case had the wrong idea. Of course compared to the Bible, the Qur'an was written in a much shorter period of time.

:sl:

 

Actually bro, the content of the command doesn't have anything to do with this. If God really commanded that, then yes the people would be obliged to do it, doing otherwise would be a sin. Plus you have to remember that you can't falsify something in the Bible unless it's directly falsified in the Qur'an(or if it can be falsified through logic) like for example Solomon(pbuh) worshipping other gods is nothing but a lie.

Sex isn't brushed off under the carpet in Islam, if you think otherwise, this is just reflecting your ingorance, and in the worst case bigotry.

 

I don't think what is written in the Bible is obscene, but then obscene to one may not be to another - for instance I find the stoning to death of adulters to be against reason and god and therefore obscene.

 

This is also found in the Bible. In fact, it's a Law given to Moses(pbuh).

 

:sl: Brothers, let's turn our focus away from the Bible as the Prophet(pbuh) told us not to accept nor falsify what the People of the Book tell us, except if the case is obvious, I gave an example of this.
