Video: Context!!!!!!!

This video is pretty funny. And it rings true to anyone who's ever tried to communicate with a theist how repulsive the Bible actually can be. It's true that the Bible isn't actually a manual for dealing death and calamity, but it contains such passages with such regularity that they are impossible to ignore.

And as NonStampCollector points out, what context could possibly justify these passages? What context would make slavery, rape and genocide okay? Beyond, of course, the whims of an omnipotent and capricious deity? In which case why does my (apparently) god-given sense of morality bristle at the actions of purest holiness?
