Paul himself is still woefully misunderstood by some.   Re: All the paul the apostle hating christians wish they could live a christian walk like he did Maybe because during that time it was ok to marry 10 yr olds, sodomizing boys was not thought of as a sin, you could beat your wife because she was property, they used their hands to wipe their back sides, and then proceeded to eat with said hand.
