I wanted to do a real debate against sphinx_solomon... Do a rebuttal on this first round.

Incest - Leviticus 18:6 says, "None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.". The actions of Lot, his daughters, Reuben, and Bilhah, and all other people who did incest are condemned.

Pornogrophy - While the Bible does mention things involving sex, it does not condone any kind of of sexual immortality (1 Corinthians 6:9). The parts in question are not the Bible's problem, It's the person's heart that would cause them to get "dirty" thoughts while reading the Bible.

its true that it is condemned, if there are a religion that spread incest act, that religion should be banned, no doubt about it,
but since we discussing about moral argument, and moral are related with etiquette ,

Ezekiel 23:20-21New International Version (NIV)

There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. 21 So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled


however if that verse in the bible took the sentence "genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses" a little kid who does not know how crazy the genital of donkey or horse is, that kid will ask about it, since we assume that kid doesnt have a dirty mind , its just proving that bible is wrong morally , because it contains the dirty word, the bible should not have a dirty word like "genital like those of donkeys" if it is holy except if it was fabricated, if you have a god that almighty , it should be almighty in every aspect, it should be almight in speech also, its just proving your god is not good in speech, and rude.

Having a verse that sounds bad doesn't make something morally wrong. For example, if a poice officer talks about a guy who fondled children in a report, and later says "Never fondle children.", that does not make him immoral in that regard.

Same thing with the writer: He wrote an account of a woman that lusted after her lovers, "whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses", and the Bible condemns those actions.

One of the definitions of "Moral" is "a person's standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do.", and in that regard, the Bible in terms of incest and sexually immoral (That's what we are discussing) things isn't immoral, since it condemns incest (Leviticus 18:6) and sexual immortality (1 Corinthians 6:9).
