Unquestioning obedience to authority is certainly a core value of Christianity. This is a religion whose prevailing metaphor tells us that we are sheep being herded by a benevolent shepherd.

#3 - You probably know this, but this is of course from the New Testament and hence post-Moses.

OK. I'm finally convinced. This country really was founded on Judeo-Christian values. We're screwed.

This is why the Rick Warrens and Mark Driscolls think they speak for Jesus. They think they are Jesus.

Why not just tell the people who own slaves to release their slaves and to never own slaves again?

Swap out "slaves" for "employees", and you've got a southern right-to-work state. (In a northern right-to-work state, they'd just leave out the reference to Christ)

Let my people go....
...please, if it's not too much of an inconvenience. I mean, we could stay on a little longer if you need.

Did anybody tell Moses? Because I'm pretty sure he didn't buy this bullshit.
