Not exactly Father Ted

Priest says he collected child porn to get revenge on God for poker losses

If he REALLY wanted to get revenge on God, he would have hacked into God's laptop and put the porn there...

This guy needs a response from Samuel Jackson Jesus.

Except not in the calm tone from the movie, more like when confronting Brad.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Yeah but he's post transitional period, and he's not all shooty-shooty.

Daredevil is Catholic (As they remind you...repeatedly) and he might like to have some quiet "Confessional" time with the padre.

I'm not an expert on the Bible like Doctor X, but I'm guessing the Bible doesn't actually say anything about child porn. Or any sort of porn. Apparently it also doesn't say anything about gambling. Gambling was a thing I'm sure in biblical times, although porn was probably fairly rudimentary in those days.

ETA: I guess masturbation is against the Bible, with the story of Onan.

Funny how Onan is the one thing you seem pretty sure of.

I would be hard pressed two shits about what the bible says. The bible is just nifty with slavery, for instance. I find child porn reprehensible.

The gambling, I don't really have a problem with, it just reminded me of what got Father Ted (from the series of the same name) exiled to the parish on "Craggy Island" along with a moron and DeBunk thus the thread title

Funny show, BTW, if you have never seen it, find it. Only a few short seasons

I am not aware of them finding porn in archaeological excavations of the Levant . . . but then that rarely gets advertised. Quick t3h g00gl3 reveals otherwise in Mesopotamia:
The exhibit also shows various forms of Caananite [Sic--Ed.] art in order to show the drastic reduction in sexuality in the area when Judaism was institutionalized in the 8th century BCE.

Ancient Pr0n
remember that "Canaanite" is a bit of a misnomer. As for "Judaism being institutionalized in the 8th century BCE," the texts from a good hundred years after--not to mention extra-biblical inscriptions and mountains of iconography--suggest quite otherwise.

Anyways, the section in that article on the popularity of entering through the back door is interesting particularly given that the Leviticus codes bandied about as forbidding homosexuality actually forbids acting as the back door. One very respected biblical scholar, noting the absence of a prohibition towards women, tried to suggest Jewish women did not practice that. The evidences, thanks, suggest otherwise as one would suspect.

Apparently, there was porn involving children as well as sex with same. Now, frankly, I am not about to search out "which tablets" and "from where and when" to figure out which area of Literal Fucktons of Square Kilometers Danish Dynamite's relatives hailed from. So I do not wish to imply that because you found a tablet in, say, Nineveh, this tells us what people were doing to and with animals, vegetables, and minerals in, say, Jerusalem.

I have not memorized Leviticus for obvious reasons. There are layers to the rules--they are not a single coherent "set." There are also other sets of rules throughout the biblical texts. Sticking with Leviticus, the rules, themselves, are rather impossible in some cases.

Further, the rules apply predominately to free citizens. Sure, there are some fun rules in Deuteronomy regarding slaves and the like which, I think, have similar sort of things in Leviticus, but the sort of things forbidden, specifically, is playing Catcher for the Pirates which, later, was expanded to cover Pitchers as well. It forbids bestiality. Yay.

The problem that comes up is how "children" would be defined. So when passages demand the enslavement of the women and their children--usually female children--what happens to them?

As for "Onanism," Onan was not punished for masturbation; he broke a rule which had nothing to do with masturbation. Those looking to prevent Little Johnny from scaring the horses merely massaged a story to generate a messy rule.

Let me rephrase that. . . .
