A powerful dramatization of the unjust acts of the Biblegod. If anyone can watch this video without being stabbed in the heart by the merciless cruelty of the Biblegod, I mourn for their hardened heart.
Twenty years ago when Hillary Clinton was First Lady of the United States, she addressed the United Nations and spoke these powerful words, “If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.” from that time until today she has tirelessly pursued the task of championing human rights for all people.
“The potential within every person to learn, discover and embrace the world around them, the potential to join freely with others to shape their communities and their societies so that every person can find fulfillment and self-sufficiency, the potential to share life’s beauties and tragedies, laughter and tears with the people we love – that potential is sacred.”

“Hillary Rodham Clinton’s dedication to the cause of women’s rights began early in her life and has never faltered. Whether as a stand-out young woman at Wellesley College, an attorney and advocate, First Lady of the United States, US Senator, or as Secretary of State, her banner has been held high. The words on that banner have been simple, powerful, and inarguable. “Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights, once and for all.” When Hillary Clinton uttered those words at the 1995 Beijing Conference on Women, the effect was electrifying. Never before had a woman of her prominence spoken out with such boldness and clarity on the appalling treatment of women around the world. And they certainly had not done it in China!” http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/foreign-policy/192081-hillary-clinton-a-lifetime-of-human-rights-advocacy
The other day on a social media site called “Quora” an interesting question was asked about why generally speaking the females of many animal species are smaller than the male. A person responded by asking the questioner to look at it from a different perspective and ask the reverse instead … why are males generally larger than females? When the question was rephrased, the answer is strikingly obvious.
In most of the animal world it is the male who fights for the right to mate with a female, and generally speaking it is the strongest and biggest male who wins the privilege of being chosen by the female to breed. Consequently, it is the strongest and most fit male who passes on his genes making his offspring the strongest and most fit for that environment.
As this evolutionary process continues generation after generation, the males become larger and stronger. Females on the other hand have a different set of selection pressures that act upon them, such as females who are most fertile and take care of their young the best are naturally the ones whose offspring survive and reproduce, thus passing on the genes for those qualities. When the question is approached from this angle it is quite easy to see what makes the evolutionary process work so well in allowing the most fit to pass on their genes. This logical approach is far different from the religious approach which arbitrarily states that god made men bigger and stronger than women so they could rule over them!
How is slavery defined in the Bible? A good place to start is the book of Exodus, where we can establish how Yahweh defines slavery and why the Hebrews bondage/slavery to the Egyptians was deemed as “Bad” by him. Exodus tells us that the Egyptians were harsh taskmasters and caused the Hebrews to serve with “rigour”, while keeping them in cruel bondage. The story goes on to say that the Lord heard the cries of the Hebrews and saw their affliction and oppression and told them he would free them from the yoke of their bondage and execute judgment upon the Egyptians.
The whole story of the Passover and the Exodus is about Yahweh freeing the children of Israel from the bondage/slavery of Egypt. Not only does the story tell us how Yahweh parted the Red Sea to free the Hebrews, but it also goes into great detail about how the Egyptians were punished by Yahweh through plagues, death of the first born sons and drowning in the Red Sea. All these judgments were inflicted upon the Egyptians because the Pharaoh would not allow his Hebrew slaves to go free. Yahweh clearly had a problem with slavery when it came to the hard bondage of his chosen people, the Hebrews by the Egyptians, yet he seemed to have no such problem with the Hebrews keeping non-Hebrews in bondage in perpetuity and passing down their children as an inheritance (in fact the Bible states that he gave laws to accommodate the Hebrews in taking slaves). To this day the Jews celebrate the biblical feast of Passover in commemoration of how Yahweh broke their yoke of slavery to the Egyptians and set them free from their captivity.

Should a book be honored and called good that contradicts itself and cannot be trusted to tell the truth? I think not …
I feel it is the responsibility of all people who consider themselves intelligent, to speak the truth and expose lies … so if a book has the honor of being called good, it should live up to the reputation that the title of “Good” carries, otherwise it should be exposed as a fraud.
