Default Dr. Laura and Gay Marriage

I saw this while browsing the net, thought it was pretty funny, and legit arguments for those gay marriage debates.

This is to help us understand some of those pesky gay marriage-type issues
from a Right Winger, American style religious extremists viewpoint per Dr Laura.

Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality, who dispenses advice to people who call in to her Radio show. On her radio show recently, she 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, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as thought-provoking.


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 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?

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

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

Your adoring fan

As a former Bible thumper myself, I find this freakin hilarious.

One note, however...

Matthew 26:28, Luke 22:20, 1st Corinthians 11:25 and Mark 14:24 make note of Jesus declaring a new covenant between God and men. The new testament, however, does not list what is and what is not accepted under this new covenant, only that it is forgiveness for our sins. I don't take the liberty of deciphering the bible for others as salvation lies within. Take this how you will...

So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?

I'm not religious in any way, though I believe there 'could' be a supreme being. but is it one thing to believe in a god? or another to follow the writings to the letter?

I don't want this to become a huge debate. offending anyone is not an option.

I think if someone takes offense to you asking questions than they are completely narrow minded.

There's a wide variety of people out there with their religious beliefs, you can simply believe in God and not worship or follow him/her or you can go all in and be an extremist. Simple as that, there's two polar opposites (Not believing in God - Following your book of choice to the letter) and everything in between.

So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?

“Lord, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The strength to change the things I cannot accept,
And the wisdom to hide the bodies”
Every view point has many merits, the important thing it to be able to laugh at yourself from time to time.
