they married their sisters

It's a touchy subject, but facts are facts; and the Biblical Garden of Eden story involves incest.

The answer I have usually heard from Biblical literalists is that they married their sisters (Adam and Eve also had daughters, according to Genesis 5:4).

Completely disgusting. I wish I did not know this. What a tragedy. I thought people had morals in the Bible. I went to 13 years of Catholic School and NEVER heard of this depravity. Are you sure?????

There was no one else to marry, if you think about it. But you have to take into account the newness of the creation at that point. The genetic line was very pure. The prohibition against incest wasn't handed down until Leviticus, when inbreeding became a problem.

"People in the Bible" were as human as the rest of us, and all sinners. Look at David.

At the time their genetic codes were considered perfect enough that intercourse with close relatives did not produce the abnormalities seen later in history.

Mixing of the gene pool is what maintains human health and longevity.

*****************************************************************
I think that some of our fellow freepers are delusional in their expectations. I think I’m detecting the emergence of yet another cycle of “let’s all be 100% pure and thereby help elect more Democrats”. And I have been so hoping that 2014 would see Republicans expand their majority in the US House and seize control of the Senate from the Democrats. And continue to expand the number of true conservatives among our Republican representatives and Senators.

I think Rush needs to expand his campaign of outreach to the low-information voter to include a campaign of education & enlightenment of the “low-savvy” conservative/libertarian.

We’re in a struggle to save the Republic folks. Let’s not start yet again to begin shooting ourselves in our feet and knees and to begin cutting off our fingers and bleeding ourselves.

The definition of “sin” is, a violation of God’s Law.

During a period of time such as with the very first of God’s Creation, if God did not have a law against procreation by members of the same family, then it was not a sin.

Under different conditions at another time, if God in his Wisdom had a law against such, then it would become sinful at that point to do it.

Again, sin is a violation of God’s law. If no law of God, then no sin.

If a law of God, then violation is sin.

We actually had a Reaganesque conservative Republican in that seat before Obama (Peter Fitzgerald, served 1999-2005), but Kirkbots have convinced naive conservatives that socialist RINO Mark Kirk is "the best we can get in that state"

It’s unfortunate that you won’t be joining with those of us who are trying to get more conservatives elected to Congress—particularly the Senate; while at the same time trying to avoid stupidities that lead to the election of Democrats where we cannot elect a conservative.

IMHO you should have added “death before common-sense” to your noble list.

The GOP will soon embrace sodomite marriage as a party plank. I refuse to support it under any circumstances.

There are some things so unthinkable that a line must be drawn. If you can lend your endorsement to that kind of perversion, it’s your business. But I am not about to sell my soul to win elections.

I put fiscal issues up front but needless to say, RINO’s are also fiscally liberal because they refuse to take quick action to balance the budget.

Kirk is one of the business as usual crowd that puts a finger in the wind to change his position to fit what he thinks is the best position to insure his re-election.

He will try to create emotional wedges to keep conservative voters in his camp outside of the gay marriage issue.

Avoid emotional wedges that are used to fake out conservatives to support RINO’s.

Good answer and very true. If it was only Adam & Eve, and then Cain killed Abel... who else would have procreated if not for siblings, cousins, etc. As you said, the initial genetic line was very pure from the original creation, and God commanded Adam to be fruitful & multiply. By the time Leviticus chapter 20 came along with it’s prohibitions on homosexuality (and equating it with bestiality & incest), there would have been no reason for incest to continue, and in fact was punishable by death.

Apparently not, since you’ve bought the establishment lies that Kirk’s Senate seat was liberal Democrat controlled for ages until “electable moderate” Kirk came along and saved us, instead of the reality that it was held by a conservative Republican immediately before Obama held it for 2 years of a single term.

In Kirk's case, vote fraud.

Every single viable conservative who was "considering" filing in the primary against Kirk was bullied behind the scenes by the establishment and told to endorse Kirk OR ELSE (State Rep. Jim Durkin, the 2002 GOP nominee against Durbin, for example, threatened to run against Kirk, then immediately backtracked and endorsed him in the primary the next week)

A tainted and corrupt Chicago machine Democrat with dismal approval ratings was put up as the "fall guy" against Kirk, so either way the machine would get a liberal in the Senate. Kirk was such a pathetic RINO candidate that he STILL ran a horribly flawed campaign (got caught lying about his military record, which the mainstream media ignored but was eventually forced to report on when Kirk made up ridiculous B.S. like he had "commanded the pentagon war room")

EVERY single poll, conducts for weeks leading up to election day, showed "electable" Mark Kirk was trailing in the race, and behind the "unelectable" conservative nominee for Governor, with EVERY demographic group in Illinois (seniors, college students, hispanics, suburban voters, downstaters, etc.)... then, low and behold, on election day... Kirk somehow "wins" and the conservative "loses".

Kirk does "better" than the conservative in places where he had zero ground game and didn't even lift a finger to campaign, which "proves" liberal Republicans are more "electable"

Mark Kirk eagerly posed for photo ops with Obama after supposedly being elected to "embarrass" and "stop" him, and he and his liberal Democrat "opponent" went out to lunch together the following week, got all kissy with each and even exchanged "gifts" while slapping each other on the back:




The really pathetic part is some conservatives have actually drank the kool-aid that this "proves" that "only moderates are electable"

I lurk in this forum because it’s a good place to get the occasional breaking news story, and to point out a few issues that interest me. I do not need the like of you telling me what is the source of my views or other bullcrap. You want to make a difference in Illinois, you freakin run for Kirk’s Senate seat in 2016. Go give your finger to the establishment instead of bomb posting anonymously in this forum.

Hardly a shock. Every liberal Republican will come out for faggotry soon enough. And unfortunately some not so liberal but not so principled ones will as well. Loving father and fool Rob Portman opened the door.

I could get in some Kirk bashing but this goes well beyond Mark Kirk, all of us knew that Mark Kirk was a liberal Republican before he was elected to the Senate. If he has an excuse to take a liberal position, he’s gonna do it.

We are losing this issue big time, 12 months ago even liberals like Kirk and Collins wouldn’t have dreamed of endorsing gay marriage.

Hell it was less than a year ago that OBAMA endorsed it. Less than a year. Before that he was afraid he’d get destroyed if he did. Talk about rapid, I’ve never seen anything like this.

Oddly enough some liberal democrats have yet to officially “come out”, Tom Carper JUST did. 7 democrats in the Senate still haven’t. They better soon or the gays will LYNCH them.

They are Manchin, gun control traitor of WV.

Nelson of Florida, just reelected.

Heidi! of North Dakota just “elected” thanks to the reservation vote,

Joe Donnelly of Indiana just elected cause Mourdock is an idiot, We’ll see if he has any principles, doubt it.

Tim Johnson, retiring.
And Mary Landrieu and Mark Pryor, up for reelection in states where people read the bible.

Don’t you think the gays must be upset that all these liberals people that already supported them were too afraid to say so till now?

I hope they direct their anger at Mary and Mark. Everyone email those cowards and tell them to stand up for gay families. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Why can’t these pro-homosexual RINOs at least make a federalism argument. At the minimum, they can fight against a NATIONAL policy.

Because they are co-opted players for the one party system we now have. They make conservative noise when necessary, but from time to time, they vote for the communists.

Against principle. For money and power.
