/* conservative scholars against the adulteress story being in the Bible and conservative scholars in favor of it being in the Bible */
:::::: Liberals ''love'' the adulteress story, and cite and repeat it endlessly. It flatly contradicts both the culture of the time and Jesus's own teachings, it is contrary to the death penalty and morality, and it directly undermines Christian values. Do you know of any conservative scholar who earnestly defends its authenticity? By conservative I mean in a political sense.--[[User:Aschlafly|Andy Schlafly]] 18:47, 7 September 2009 (EDT)
:Andy, I think you missed an important point concerning politics entering into the equation by someone who opposed the death penalty. I wrote: "Opposition to the death penalty in the Middle East is likely fairly recent. It also appears the Roman Republic did not ban the death penalty until 1849." In short, the liberal knee jerk opposition to the death penalty did not likely exist in the ANE culture of that time. The ANE culture was very conservative.
