This is nothing new for me. I've been interested in religions for many years. I've conversed in depth with quite a few Biblical scholars on these topics. I don't just pull verses and not check for context. I encourage anyone who read my post to check them for context.
God sending a bear to maul children to death for making fun of a bald man? Sure it's wrong of those kids, but they're kids, and mauled to death? I checked the context and basically the story is what it appears to say.
And discriminating against the handicapped (Leviticus 21:17-23). The blind, people with broken hand or broken foot or with flat nose, or dwarves, shall not approach the altar of the Lord. The reason stated? Because they will PROFANE God's sanctuary. Again, I've researched and discussed the context with many, it is what it says.
