Does God Reward Killing Babies?! (A look at Psalm 137:9)

In this episode of Truthspresso I look at one passage I consider to be one of the hardest to explain. It is an excuse for some people to believe the Bible really isn't the Word of God or that Christianity isn't true.

Psalm 137:9 says "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Does God favor or reward people for killing babies?!

Let's look at some context and history to figure out what this verse is really talking about!
