Thou Shall Murder, Rape, Commit Adultery, Steal, Covet Your Neighbour´s Wife And Anything That Belongs To Your Neighbour. It´s OK. The Bible tells me so.I found this gem in the Bible that I want to share with you.
It is a lovely, endearing story. It ´s very inspiring. It sounds like the kind of tale us parents should read to our kids before they fall asleep. Plus, it also teaches our children how to behave as God´s Chosen Crowd, and best of all, how to break half of the Commandments in just one sweep and still have God´s own seal of approval. All in all, a real winner !!

And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites.Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.
And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe
And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.
And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.
and they killed every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, they kept alive for themselves"...

I must confess, though, that at the beginning I believed those were the words and orders of a barbaric, racist, mysoginist and deadly Dictator, because that´s how they all behave, but I was wrong, for in reality that was God himself talking and the long series of crimes that ensued were strongly recommended and lovingly committed in His name, so it ´s all Cool .
So, after reading this charming tale of brotherly love, Aren´t you glad most moral and social values are still ba
No wonder this is and has been such a peaceful Earth
