God didn't really do these bad things from the bible as is said that he did

here are some tripped out stories that are supposedly from "God". the thing to note, is that a lot of the bible isn't justifiable but isn't from God to begin with, perhaps. such as how to treat women as property, how to properly beat your slaves, or to stone virgins. but the bible says these following things came from God. 1.

linate
s27v

the idea that we have to wait longer in a single payer system is mostly a myth. according to the Commowealth for most procedures the usa is well below average in wait times. for some specialized care, the usa is towards the top, but still not best. what can we conclude? -wait times is mostly a red herring- if we want decent access to doctors we shouldn't limit the supply of doctors like we have in the usa. let the free market work more in this regard. -every other developed country is eithe...
