The Slave Is His Money?

And people actually believe this Yahweh  beast is God. Amazing. From the Errancy Discussion List, 8-4-99 (comments welcome):

Ex. 2-13 Thou shalt not kill.

Ex. 21:20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a
rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. 21
Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be
punished: for he is his money. (KJV)

If you beat a slave to death and he/she dies straight away,
you're punished. But if it takes the slave one or two days to
die, you get away scott free. Now there is a fine example of the
absolute morality of the Bible, the high moral road Xians keep
telling us about. Slaves are MONEY and they can be beaten to
death, just as long as it takes them a lot of time to die. God
certainly does move in a mysterious way.

Yeah, if the slave dies right away, the slave owner was punished, but if the poor slave lingered in pain a day or two and then died, the slave owner was not punished. What can I say except that this sounds just like something this god Yahweh would have decreed?
