Thou Shalt Kill Everybody And The Horse They Rode In On

Michael Fridman is blogging the Bible. Today he presents 1 Samuel 15, in which God demands that Saul kill all the Amalekites, down to the last woman, child, and farm animal. Saul fails in this: he manages to massacre all the babies, but can't bring himself to kill the livestock. So God gets mad at him.

You can't make this stuff up.
