Bible Ramblings

I don't know if y'all have already read this but I found this somewhere awhile ago and I would like to share with those who have yet to read it. If anyone find the Bible as the source of answer regarding homosexuals and same-sex marriage, be attentive:

1. 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?

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. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are purchased 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?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2.
The passage clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally
obligated to kill him myself?

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 with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

Most of the things is LEV are only followed by the Jewish. Catholic Christianity (and do not quote me for this) disregarded alot of these things about the food eating etc in one of the big catholic councils.

But why can they discount ANY of the bible? Thanks for posting this Shap-Half - ive been looking for it myself.

The thing with the bible is that the 'christians' pick out of it what they want to follow and ignore the stuff that doesnt belong in this day and age.

Why arent women still stoned to death in western society? parts of the bible condone that..

there are so many examples of this its amazig.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Maybe you should go ask the Pope

It was at the Vatican council or the council of nicea or some council Im not sure which and they made Catholicism that which both the east and west (sides of europe) agreed on and followed.

BTW shap_half, it's no coincidence that all those scriptures in this piece are from the Old Testament.

On the other hand, nash still hasn't given his opinion on it as far as I know, so maybe he will do that this time.

Just so you all know the Bible, the part that has all of these "outragous" claims about gays and chicken legs was made before the coming of Christ and is prodominately the Jewish religion. Christians (catholics) of course follow these guidelines too but it is prodominately originally the Jewish faith.

Wow, thanks for clarifying that, I never knew...it's just a shame that in all the millions of times this has been posted, nobody has ever been able, as far as I know, to answer the fundamental question of why Christians consider some bits relevant and other bits not. Apart from the obvious one which is they ignore the bits that tell them what not to do, but keep the bits that tell other people what not to do.

And? Why does it matter from which particular part of the Bible they come?

I was not using this as an excuse .... I was just pointing out that it isn't only the Catholic who are against gay marriage or gay intercourse. That's all.

And most Christian's do keep to the bible as much as they can, however everyone is only human. The only real thing in the Bible that people disconsider are the eating laws in leviticus because as I said before the council of Nicea, which was a council of all the popes or something back ages ago decided for some reason that these laws were not needed.

And we are just pointing out that Catholics use this part of the bible to justify their attitude to gay marriage and gay intercourse. That's all.
