Thread: Questions for Kermit ...

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    I was reading an article in the Guardian about the present day 'crusade' by religious organisations again gays. Knowing Kermit's fondness for quoting scripture to justify his points of view, I thought it would be interesting to hear his opinions on certain parts of scripture brought up by a reader's comments ...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    I do need some advice, however, regarding some of the other specific laws in the Bible and how to follow them.

    1). When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord (Leviticus 1:9). The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

    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 cleanliness (Leviticus 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.

    4). I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

    5). A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is a abomination of Leviticus 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

    6). Leviticus 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?

    7). Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Leviticus 19:27. How should they die?

    8). I know from Leviticus 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

    9). My uncle has a farm. He violates Leviticus 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? (Leviticus 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? (Leviticus 20:14).

    I think if you get such a response then it's probably that time of the month [youtube]mCwKbUVyHLY[/youtube]

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    no you aren't


    oh wait. sorry. i could have worded that better. i was just reading up on this bright thing. i thought it'd be a smart arse thing to call an atheist who denies atheism, a bright.

    as far as religion goes i'll most likely agree with you a lot more than i agree with JP. i reckon organised religion is a shit.

    If you'd read some earlier threads of mine you'd know that if I have to be called anything, it would be agnostic, not atheist. I would prefer no labels, but that seems too complicated for some people to comprehend.

    As to religions, that's a whole different thing, one doesn't need to be an atheist or agnostic to find religions to be a load of bollocks. There are many deeply spiritual people, who believe in gods, who don't belong to any religion, and have no desire to be a part of one.

    explain your agnosticism plz. if you reject organised religion, there's no reason to believe in a god. the idea is purely man-made.

    so an omnipotent being can't be disproved, but he's never been seen, he's never done anything, and he's doing a good job of hiding.
