The Marquis de Sade wrote 120 Days of Sodom in hopes it would be “the most impure tale that has ever been written since the world exists.” He failed, of course. The Old Testament remains unchallenged as the most vicious, cruel and evil book of all time. Just a taste, this one from Leviticus 21:
And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron, saying, whosoever he be of my seed that hath any blemish, let him not approach to have of the bread of his God.
For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or brokenhanded
Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken…
Only he shall not go into the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the Lord do sanctify them.
