There are more clobber texts about Canaanites than there are about gays

Here is what the Bible commands God’s people to do when they encounter Canaanites:

“But as for the towns of these peoples that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, you must not let anything that breathes remain alive. You shall annihilate them — the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites — just as the Lord your God has commanded.” (Deuteronomy 20:16-17)

And here is what Jesus did when he encountered a Canaanite:

Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed instantly. (Matthew 15:28)

Why did Jesus hate the Bible?
