This is fair comment. I’ve tried to address a couple of the points about “blame” and how we use biblical texts to address modern issues in a second post. But what you say highlights the need for hermeneutical candour. I think probably my basic concern is that we allow ancients texts to speak on their own terms and not to be made mouthpieces for modern ethical and theological (my more serious concern) opinions.
