    Is this a pick and choose? Most verses seem to be treated this way by its "believers"

    Except for the most orthodox Jews, most of the 500 or so rules in Leviticus are ignored by those of us for whom this book is part of our Holy writs. We Christians have bought into the idea that there is a new New Covenant superseding the older "How To Be A Godly Guy" rules as written in Leviticus. Now we must only believe that Jesus is the human manifestation of the Almighty and behave by loving our other people as much as we love ourselves (we are left to figure out the other specific actions and prohibitions).

    But you missed some of the really good ones.....

    ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.

    “‘If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife —with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death.

    “‘If a man has sexual relations with an animal, he is to be put to death, and you must kill the animal.

    (What did the poor animal do wrong?)

    16 “‘If a woman approaches an animal to have sexual relations with it, kill both the woman and the animal.

    For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God. 18 No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; 19 no man with a crippled foot or hand, 20 or who is a hunchback or a dwarf, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles.

    ‘Do not mate different kinds of animals.“‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.

    “‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.

    20 “‘If a man sleeps with a female slave who is promised to another man but who has not been ransomed or given her freedom, there must be due punishment

    7 “‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.




    And this is the source of information that "good christians" use to persecute an entire class of people.....

    All I can say is WOW, what a bunch of pathetic people I see here. There will come a day when you discover just how wrong you were throughout your mesirable lives. Go ahead and accept gay marriage, unions, whatever you want to call it. It is just another topic that proves the moral decline of this once great nation is still in full motion.

    You forgot Leviticus 20:13

    “‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."


    So, who's bringing the bucket of rocks to the pride parade? :whistling:
