He's a total wanker basically, that thinks he knows it all but a failure in life. I put him on the same level as Paris Hilton. I don't hate them, I just think they take up valuable space.

That's the funny thing about religion, you read what you like, and ignore what you don't like.

Don't all humans do that? :P

I understand now why he's so thoroughly annoyed me in the past. His trolling here is so effortless and natural. He's an expert at it.

Heck I think I just realized that his face and voice are practically designed to enhance his already superhuman ability to annoy others.

I am glad in this case he's using his powers for good.

Perfect Example: Homosexuality and divorce................

Chow_Mein_Kampf

Where is divorce punishable by death?

Committing adultery is punishable by death, but divorce is actually allowed, at least in Torah. Whether a post-divorce sexual relationship turns out to be itself adultery depends on the circumstances of the divorce, but the divorce by itself is permissible.

The WBC is pretty much at the point where they'd take any chance to appear on TV. Brand seems to be the perfect tool.

well if you put these together one could argue it does.

And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery. Matthew 19:9

If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. Leviticus 20:10

it's vague and mentions the neighbor, but it seems like adultery is death anyways

There is never specified in Torah that divorce itself brings about a death penalty. It actually allows divorce, as Mosheh allowed for a certificate of divorce. The only historic controversy was whether the reason for divorce allowed for remarriage, and that is what I think Yeshua is addressing here. What I get from Yeshua's statement there isn't explicity about divorce but about adultery, specifically excluding divorce as a universal door for marrying another individual and excluding the reasons permitting remarriage to the sexual immorality of the divorced partner.

Further proving these books are laughable. More holes and vagueness than you can shake a stick at

Probably have a point, but I don't think this particular part is all that vague.

The main reason for the question being posed to Yeshua at the time was a long-term argument going on within the Pharisaic sect, between those who aligned themselves with Hilel and those who aligned themselves with Shammai. Like most things Pharisaical, the argument had more to do with interpretation of oral tradition than it did the written words of the Torah. Yeshua's answer stuck with the pure language of the written Torah, which isn't really all that easy to misinterpret, at least in this case, but as a result, his answer didn't really fit in with either of the schools of thought that were involved in the debate.

Anyway I don't want to derail this further. If the original poster had substituted "adultery" where he wrote "divorce", the point would be very valid. There are a ton of instances of adultery, and I doubt the rate is marginally lower among those who profess to follow any form of religious law that forbids such things vs. those who don't follow any religious law. Further, I'd wager that a great many of those who think their adultery was forgiven probably are much less forgiving about things like homosexuality. Not something I can prove of course, just a guess based on overall observations.

Maybe you didn't read the part where I said I didn't hate him??? I just hate his attitude towards insulting everyone for a laugh when he should look in the mirror and his life and compare, then it wouldn't be so funny.

(I actually found THIS video quite funny)

I think the Westboro Baptist Church are far more offensive than anything Russell Brand could possibly be/do. I mean, I wouldn't care if it was Amy Childs presenting the show; these pathetic excuses for humans need as much offending as possible.

People keep forgetting the time period of the books and letters that are in the bible. People also forget that it was also written in a different culture. These aren't Caucasian, Asian, African, etc people in the bible. From what I have read so far, they are Israeli and Egyptian. Also the bible is written by more than 1 person. You have Moses who wrote Genesis, the Disciples who wrote the New Testament, etc. Its not surprising that peoples opinions and views will be different. Just like how religious people today have different opinions and views. If you notice (I think you read the bible at one point right?), a lot of the things said back then were things that were either legal, or considered fine in that time period. Slaves were a big thing back then, its not surprising that they condone slavery. Women had no rights back then. Again, not surprising that the bible condones treating women like crap. Just my 2 cents.

Again, please read carefully. I don't hate him, I just think he uses cheap insulting insensitive tactics to get a laugh, when his life isn't that brilliant to be able to laugh at others. @meconate: I totally agree.

Well... except for the Torah itself. I realize it's a religious text, but 99.9% of the Egyptian tablets and histories we rely on to track Egyptian history are religious texts, very heavily twisted to promote whichever set of Pharoahs ruled at the time and their claims of communing with (or actually being) deities.

When dealing with historical figures from periods as far back as Mosheh, Djoser, Imhotep, etc., that's about as good as it gets.

Ermmm... Moses was the leader of a nomadic band who supposedly existed three and a half millennia ago. Please tell me what concrete evidence you would be able to find today? His existence is well documented in the Torah, and "his" only physical work, the Ten Commandments were lost with the disappearance of the Ark of the Covenant.

I'd honestly be quite surprised if there were any evidence that Gandhi existed after 3500 years.
