Cherry picking Bible Quotes for positive intolerance


The Social Cons aren’t the only ones who can cherry pick Bible verses. Though mine aren’t for establishing oppression against gays or others. This isn’t an attempt at preaching any religion, just pointing out that if you’re going to use the Bible for creating intolerance, then why not intolerance against affliction and injustice?

“If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.” ~ Deuteronomy 15:7

“But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won’t help him–how can God’s love be within him?” ~ 1 John 3:17
