Gay Bible Letter
On her radio show, Dr. Laura Schlesinger said
that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people
regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from
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 purchased from neighboring nations.
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.
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.
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on
the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be
put to death.
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating
shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the
altar of God if I have a defect in my sight.
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.
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
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.

it was pre-9-11) when it was on The West Wing.
