...and it never...like, ever occured to you that scripture might be wrong about a thing or two? Well, of course not...I mean, haha, what was I thinking! Society and culture really haven't changed a bit since those scriptures were collected about 2,000 years ago and then elevated to being perceived as god's verbatim instructions on how to live life as a human being on earth, now have they? All of which happened in a region of the world we now want usurp. No no, your "But....SCRIPTURE!?!?!" is just a 100% coherent, bullet-proof argument.
