I thought this was something to share!! I mean no disrespect for religious beliefs, culture or ways of life, it is just reposting something I found and I believe its absolutely brilliant!!!

In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant
Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus
18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.

The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a US man,
and posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I
have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that
knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend
the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that
Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of
debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other
elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine
claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair
price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how
do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus
35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated
to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there
'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I
have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading
glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room
here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.
19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes
me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two
different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments
made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also
tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go
to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them?
Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family
affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy
considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan.

This is a beautiful letter BUT as a Canadian, living in the US does this qualify me to own an American - if so I will take YB (for the brawn), Sam (why else ???), Ripped (for the porn).

As an equal opportunity employer I will also take a few others...

In all seriousness I will stay out of the ensuing religious debate as I do not profess to be a religious person nor understand scripture very well.
Raised as a Roman Catholic though I must say that hypocracy runs rampant in any religion.

As I stated, this post means no religious, sexual or whatever discrimination from my side, but I believe that the letter from the guy is brilliant!!

got to love the "old testiment" Law.

I got my son with one yesterday... I'm cooking bacon for breakfast (of course you can smell it soon as you come down stairs) and he says, "is that bacon?"

I said, "yes, proof that God exist and that he loves us"...

My son gives me this weird look and says, "How so?"

I said, " Name the three major religeons in the world..."

"Islam, Judiaism, and Christianity...."

"of the three, which ones can eat bacon?"

"Christianity...."

"proof that God exist, and he loves us"


"dad.... you are sooooooo weird"

Not trying to stir the pot but those laws were written to the Isrealites specifically. I think people can tend to get themselves in trouble when they take things out of context. "Cherry picking" verses to prove your own personal agenda is really not an accurate way to interprept the Bible. Having said that I do indeed find humor in the post.

Interesting letter i must agree, now as long as this doesn't turn into a heated "religeous" or "moral issue" debate then i actually think it's pretty cool to see something like this from both sides, and IF these laws go thru then i will simply take rkwaki simply because then i would get YB,Sam,and Ripped.....like a trifecta type of deal!!! and you gotta love Rifleman's post.....

Name the three major religeons in the world..."

Should we really be saying new testament and old testament? The new testament is still really old.

I think it should be old testament and most recent testament...

Not even touching the religion side of this. But I do have one question, how the heck can one man want to make out with another man is beyond me? I'll give you there are some handsome men out there. I'm not gay but am comfortable enuf in my heterosexuality to admit that. But damn, brad pitt on his best day still doesn't even compare to the most mediocre soccer mom shopping the local target in my book. Homosexuality is or damn well should be a sin. If lusting over a woman is, being gay better be.

beats the heck out of me, too, but to each their own.

That letter was hilarious. In the interest of not starting a religious war, I'll leave it at that!

Let me get this out of my chest: I posted this threat making lots of clarifications about not having religious or sexual intentions about the letter. Still, I was hesitant to post it, but in the end, I thought it was worth the try since it was a very interesting letter.
Having said this, I would like to mention that the openness of mind of the board members is remarkable. Everyone, including myself, were extremely cautious not to get entangled into the religious or sexual topic, we all looked at the letter as it is, just a letter. I am really proud to be part of such a fine community of people!
