...regardless of which side uses it. C'mon, this is a book that also says women descended from a man's rib and there was a talking snake. It says you can give a woman holy water to drink to determine if she has cheated on her husband (her belly will swell and her thigh will rot). This is from a God that ordered troops to slay women and children and keep the virgin girls for themselves (Numbers 31:17-18). He orders women specifically to stay silent in churches, and to learn in silence and never teach men (1 Timothy 2:11-14). It says slaves must completely obey and fear their slavemasters, even if the master is cruel and unjust (1 Peter 2:18), and it is not immoral for a slavemaster to beat his slave to near-death, as long as the slave survives a day or two (Exodus 21:20-21), the reason stated is because the slave is his "money".
Whether left or right, who could recognize any credibility in such a book?
