FLMountainMan: Because gay people are "fabulous" their kids will turn out that way too!  That's grade A humor right there!  Be careful, subby, or Dane Cook will steal that for his next bit.

Dr Dreidel: ParagonComplex: I've been tempted to find a list of all the silly shiat it says is wrong to show to him to shut him up. If any of you Farkers have one handy, do share.

Deuteronomy says it's OK to kill a "rebellious" child. Leviticus forbids re-marrying a woman you divorced if she "knew" another man in the interim (as well as forbidding some US-legal but weird relationships like screwing your stepmom). Exodus makes it legal to kill an intruder in your home, but only if "the sun does not shine upon him" (i.e. you don't know who he is).

Off the top of my head. There are some things that happens that aren't punished, suggesting tacit approval - like the judge (in Judges) who promises god an offering of "the first thing I see in my return home" (he'd just won a major battle). Guy's daughter came out to meet him, so he had her sacrificed (he was sad about it, though).

// though in that last story, there is a very clear lesson: watch your damned mouth and don't let your mouth write checks your family can't cash


Obligatory

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 of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

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?

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?

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.
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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

KrustyKitten: I'm ok with this.

What child wouldn't benefit from being raised in a loving stable home?


One who's allergic to horses?

Wade_Wilson: I have a horrible confession; I actually prefer turkey bacon to pork bacon.

I'm so sorry, internet. Will you forgive my sins if I dip it in Nutella?


"Dip it in Nutella" is that some kind of homophobic slur?

Would you take your infant daughter's temperature in her vagina?  No?  But there's nothing wrong with a gay dad taking his infant son's temperature in his rectum?  No?

Why are you just standing there with that piece of cake in your mouth.  Chew for christ's sake!

Biological Ali: Seriously? People are going to try and "debate" someone with the handle George Walker Bush? The only way he could make it any more obvious is if he changed his handle to The Guy Trolling the Thread Right Now.


And the troll appears! This is some Inception stuff right here...

Maturin: George Walker Bush: ReverendJasen: Maturin: The AAP has been pretty good about backing up policy changes like this with a good study or two. Once again, science trumps religion.

In this case, they said over 60 studies, that covered many different aspects of children's lives, from emotional & psychological health to acedemic performance.

And not one that compares biological two parent households. Can't have the actual problem being addressed. Once again, politics trump science.

I think a better comparison might be between a same sex couple vs. foster care, which is where many children end up if they were not adopted by a same sex couple. Conservatism trumps reason.


That is the only comparison they allow to be studied because they don't want to deal with the root problem. Conservatism = reason

rkiller1: Wait a minute.  So married couples raise better kids?  That not what I heard from Women's Libbers at NOW.



That's odd.  I figured they most likely told you, "Get away from me, you creep, before I call the police."

It doesn't matter what kind of bacon you eat, I support your right to marry the partner of your choice.

The best environment for raising a child is in a stable household with the biological parents in every science except one, POLITICAL! Can we have some more tax money, Obama? Screw the fact that we are cementing a permanent cycle of screwed up generations of dependency. We need funding for our worthless jobs, trying to create a new science to discredit the nuclear family as a foundation for every healthy society in the history of mankind. But really, it is more important to teach our children to define themselves by how they F***

Keep in mind, though, that the people opposed to gay marriage "for the children" already think that biologists, paleontologists, archaeologists, physicists, astronomers, most historians, NASA, the UN, the AP, the AMA, the APA, the WHOI, the NEA, APL, JAP, JABS, AAB, JIM, and Jim, my high school biology teacher are all a plot of to make kids reject God, so I don't think that it'll be mentally difficult for them to dismiss another organization with a 3-letter acronym for being part of the conspiracy.

So when do I start boycotting physicians who are members of the AAP?

Maybe I'll ask Reverend Pat Robertson the next time I buy some his vitamins, shakes and ante-diluvian water.
