Wordy people those Babylonians, but they wrote some early law of burglary that punishes the poor burglar for taking, but also the homeowner for giving to the poor. Backwardly uncharitable to say the least, No wonder god nuked those people. America would have nuked them eventually if god hadn't done it first.
Just read what they wrote:
MISHNA I.: There are two acts constituting transfer 1 of movable things (over the dividing line
of adjoining premises, based on biblical statutes). The two acts are, however, increased to four
on the inside and to a like amount on the outside of the premises (by the addition of rabbinical
statutes). How so? A mendicant stands outside and the master of a house inside. The mendicant
passes his hand into the house (through a window or door) and puts something into the hand of
the master, or he takes something out of the master's hand and draws it back (toward him). In
such a case the mendicant is guilty (of transfer) and the master of the house is free. If the master
of the house passes his hand outside and puts a thing into the hand of the mendicant, or takes
something out of the mendicant's hand and brings it into the house, the master of the house is
culpable and the mendicant is free.
2 If the mendicant extends his hand into the house and the
master takes something out of it, or puts something into it which is drawn to the outside by the
mendicant, they are both free. If the master of the house extends his hand outside and the
mendicant takes something out of it, or puts something into it which is drawn to the inside by
the master, they are both free.
If a homeowner wants to hand a can of beans to a hungry bum, should that be any business of anyone else?
I give the Talmud a big thumbs down. Too many words, too brutal a philosophy. Not worth a pillar of salt.
