    cont…

    g) 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?

    h) 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) 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?

    j) 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.

    @808Patriot -”No part of the Bible is archaic. The Bible is the inspired Word of God. If you refute the Bible, you turn away from God. If you choose to not follow God, you are in sin.”

    a) 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?

    b) 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?

    c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness (Lev.15:19-24).The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

    d) 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?

    e) 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?

    f) 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?

    There are probably as many gay Irish Catholics in this country as is the total Muslim population. As I said previously, should the gays have protested to have an effigy of them being beheaded displayed along side the one of the woman being hanged? And your argument that you “didn’t see the gays at the muslim parades…” Puh-lease! There are far more women in the US than there are gays as a whole. WHERE were the women protesting that vile, sexist and graphic display of how to treat a woman?!! Where was N.O.W.? Where were you? You know what they say about people who live in glass houses…

  • [1] September 16, 2014 at 5:16pm

    Although I am sure you might find some gay Muslims in this country, I’m sure they are vastly outnumbered by gay Irish Catholics. It makes sense. Besides, What would the gay Muslims be protesting vis-a-vis the parade? Demanding that an effigy if a gay man being decapitated be displayed alongside the effigy of a woman being hanged?

    Speaking of Satan, you’ve heard the outrage and horror expressed over the recent beheading’s. Do yourself a favor and Google, ” Beheadings in Saudi Arabia”. Then ask yourself why we haven’t heard anything on the news about this? 19 people were beheaded there just last month, did you know that? Yet Saudi Arabia is our good friend and ally.

    First of all, it is a quote from a part of the Bible that Christians call archaic and admittedly do not follow themselves. Even if they did it out of what they believe to be a virtuous desire to “save” homosexuals, the group who chose this campaign evoking Leviticus are idiots. They could have cited a passage in the New testament if they wanted to be taken seriously.

    The bigger question is, do you think this is OK? After all, if you believe this is a perfectly appropriate expression of free speech and religious protection, how will you feel when a Muslim billboard citing the Koran is erected and calls for killing the infidel or stoning your daughter? A billboard as such would fall under the same protections as this ill-conceived example.

    @makingout – “St. Patrick’s Day celebrates being Irish. Last I heard, Irish isn’t a religion! Pull your head out of your ass!”

    Ah yes, they just happened to choose to name the parade after a Catholic Saint and hold the parade annually on Saint Patrick’s feast day. Catholic societies and clubs march in the parade after mass but, THAT has absolutely nothing to do with it.
    So using your logic (I know that’s an oxymoron but we’ll go with it anyway) if the parade had been scheduled in August it could have been called the “Puck Day Parade” in honor of the wild puck or male goat who alerted villagers to the arrival of Oliver Cromwell? You couldn’t get much more Irish than that.

    @ABM4CG – IF your son was sexually harassed, the perpetrator should have been court marshalled. If he indeed was raped (as you allege), the perp should have been jailed as well.

    As for your reference to “sodomites and pedophiles” once again you choose to ignore the fact that those deviants are far more prevalent among heterosexuals. Your attempt to portray all homosexuals as such belies your ignorance and bigotry. Your insistence that I am “obsessed” with my sexual orientation is way off base as well. Whereas I refuse to hide who I am, I don’t throw it in anyone’s face either. HOWEVER, when I am confronted with ignorance, unprovoked attacks, slurs and outright lies I will not sit back and let it go. I, like my brother’s and sister’s in the military, will not back down from a fight when it is brought to my door.

    Since you claim you “scanned my comment history”, perhaps you should go back and actually READ what I have written. You might have learned that: I do not support gay couples suing bakeries over a wedding cake, I was a strong supporter of Mr. Cathy (Chick-fil-A) and a detractor of the boycott on his company. Unlike yourself, I do not see people and judge them by their sexual orientation. I view them individually by their actions and character.

    Statistics show that 23-28% of female military service members are sexually assaulted while in the military each year and 11% are raped. Some experts believe these numbers are higher today since these figures were gathered before women’s roles increased in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. A report published in 2006 found that 6.8% of active duty women were sexually assaulted in a single year. Statistics of sexual harassment of women vary, ranging from 34-78% of military women.

    While male sexual assault and harassment are vastly under-reported in the military, one estimate claims 3.5% of male service members are sexually assaulted while in the military, and 1.2% are raped. A 2006 report found 1.8% of active duty men were sexually assaulted in a single year. Statistics of sexual harassment vary, ranging from 6-38% of men in the military.

    Facts are a very inconvenient thing. It’s understandable that you people choose to willfully ignore the fact that sexual harassment and rape in the military perpetrated by heterosexuals upon both other heterosexuals and homosexuals alike, is far more prevalent and a much bigger problem than those you rail against. I suppose it wouldn’t support your narrative if you were to admit that “your own kind” are guilty of vastly more incidents of the sort you seek to vilify all gay military members by.

    The gays were standing along side of you. They were supporting your protest of the effigy of a woman being lynched.

  • [-22] September 15, 2014 at 10:49am

    No. The gays are too busy serving in the military protecting your sorry @ss. They’re voluntarily facing the enemy, keeping you and your family safe while sit at home all nice and comfy and snipe at them from behind.

    That’s because the gays are in the military and are too busy putting their lives on the line fighting to protect your freedom to sit comfortably on your @ss in your living room and criticize them.

  • [-8] September 15, 2014 at 10:37am

    You mean like the St. Patrick’s Day parade?

    That they made a mockery of it is true but, he didn’t get the nomination without a lot (probably mostly) real women voting for him. Just like Obama; for all the racist rhetoric thrown around, he didn’t get in without white folks voting for him …. twice!

    “…with a lousy economy its a great time for the LGBT ….”

    Are you serious? Do you honestly believe that the LGBT is immune from this economy? I guess in your world the LGBT doesn’t pay taxes, we get our health care for free,we are fully employed and high paying jobs are just thrown at us. Groceries? Well…. we just present our LGBT Club card at the register and get a hefty discount. Gas? We have use the secret LGBT pumps and pay .35¢ per gallon. Lastly (and I can get in trouble for telling you this) Banks pay us 12% interest on our savings accounts. You didn’t think they were keeping all that money to themselves, did you? Oh and another thing: When I go to church whereas most people put money in the basket, the church actually lets the gay members help themselves to a handful of those envelopes on our way out. It’s their way of saying ‘thank you’ to us.

    Marriage is a religious term and only valid in the eyes of God.

    Can one of you zealots help me out here? Which state try to impose a constitutional ban on marriage for atheists? Where were the anti-atheist marriage rallys held? Which religious group cam out against atheist marriages? I can’t seem to find any of that happening anywhere.

  • [1] September 13, 2014 at 12:43pm

    The Catholic Church is pretty well funded and politically connected. But I suppose if the LGBT is fighting for their rights and those opposed to them find “sports, porno and celebrities” more important, you have nothing to complain about. You’ve got the money and the connections but, apathy rules. So sad for “most people”.

    Why is it that gays want to co-opt the religious term “marriage”?
    - You mean like Atheists?

    Why can’t we just have civil unions for anyone/everyone and save marriage as under the sanctity of God for those who wish to abide by God”s laws?
    - Why do you accept without question atheists getting married and calling it such but, you object to someone who believes in God from doing the same? Is it because you would have no problem having sex with the atheist’s wife? You wear your religion on your sleeve. All this tells me about you is that your sexual attraction for women trumps anyone’s faith in God.
