In Response To: Is The Bible More Violent Than The Quran? (Quasim Hamdani)

Dear Sir,

The Qur'an is not violent at all. My 25 rebuttals prove it all through.

The Old Testament is loaded with violence, more than the NT.

Here are only a very few examples only from LEVITICUS (Book 3).

Death penalty for adultery and homosexuality
20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. [The Islamic Mullahs seem to have gotten this non-Quranic punishment or stoning from here]
20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. [What about the 'gay rights']
Burn alive!
20:14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; ----.
20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: ----.
They remain childless!
20:21 And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall be childless.
Stoning to death on mere conjecture
20:27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them. [The priesthood has burnt alive countless people by this excuse. There is no such things as a familiar spirit, witch or wizard]
Beware the daughters of priests!
21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
21:13 And he [the priest] shall take a wife in her virginity.
Discrimination against the disabled
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach [the altar]: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
Stone to death the apostate
24:14 Bring forth him that hath cursed [the Lord] without the camp; ----, and let all the congregation stone him. [Stoning or burning is not ordained in the Quran for any transgression]
Buy slaves
25:44 ----; of them [the heathen] shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.
Eat the flesh of your children, the furious Lord
26:29 [If the Lord became furious for disobedience] And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.
Price tag on men and women has a ratio of 5 and 3
27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male --- shall be fifty shekels of silver, --.
27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

From Book 4 NUMBERS

Moses becomes more tyrannical than Pharaoh!
31:7 And they warred against the Midianites, ----; and they slew all the males.
31:9 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, ----.
31:10 And they burnt all their cities ----.
31:15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?
31:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
31:18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
31:51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels.
Take the law in your own hands
35:19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him.
36:13 These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
