Numbers 31 17:18 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
Deuteronomy 21 10:11 When you go to war against your enemies and the Lord your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives, 11 if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife.
Along with a number of other unpleasant passages (women being stoned in response to having been raped etc). .
Old religious books have all sorts of nasty stuff in them. I only nope these do not actually represent the will of God, but rather the culture of the people who wrote down the stories.
These are quotes from the Old Testament - Christians follow the life and example of Jesus Christ, and you can read about his life in the New Testament. False equivalency arguments show a basic ignorance of the topic. The Old Testament shows, amongst other things, the slow, painful and violent historical development of ancient people from lawless barbarism to the development and following of the rule of law. As I stated on a now defunct thread:
In a time of barbarism and slavery, Christ hung out with the outcasts (lepers and prostitutes), held complex political discussions with women and claimed that a person's personal religion should be between the person and his/her God: "Rend unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and rend unto God what is God's." The most violent thing he did was to overturn the tables in the temple and chase some people with a stick - no murders. So, Christ's personal moral example holds up exceptionally well even in today's modern world - which is remarkable, when we remember the culture he lived in. The Islamic prophet, sadly, killed a lot of people, degraded the female sex by having multiple wives and concubines, led wars of conquest, enslaved large numbers of conquered people including the wives of slain enemies, ordered executions, and so it goes on. His personal moral example is appalling by contemporary moral standards. Sadly, large swathes of people in the Mid East are poorly educated and hold a very literal view/ interpretation of the Koran and Hadiths. The life of their prophet is meant to represent the perfect human life, meaning that he is the supreme example of a moral life, worthy of close emulation. This is a problem for the world.
Compare the final words of Christ, Buddha and Mohammad - very interesting. Study the declining numbers of Christians in the Middle East (due to Islamic persecution) over the last hundred years. Read about the Christian mother in Pakistan who dared drink some water from a Muslim's cup (she is currently facing the death sentence for blasphemy). Some Christians do heinous things, and some Muslims do heinous things, but that does not mean that the lives of the founders are the moral equivalent of each other. The teachings of each belief system flow directly from the example of these two lives - and this explains quite a lot.
