Means that God detests gay men,
Liars, and bacon!
“Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”Barack Obama
Abomination is a word used by people of the Bible to describe something that God does not like. All abominations are not the same, though. Some, like a man lying with another man, require the death penalty while others, like eating unclean food (pork, squirrel, crab, lobster, shrimp) only require like 80 lashes or something like that. Christians seem to believe that being gay is so bad but they won’t follow the rule of God to kill them. Maybe it’s because they’re not sure that if they kill the gay man if they would be put to death by God for breaking one of his commands. It’s all so confusing. I’ll have a ham sandwich with my beer and think about it some more.

It’s confusing, because it’s all rediculous. That’s why preachers/priests don’t want you to read the bible; they don’t want to have to explain the contradictions and crazy shiite that’s in there. If the christians are going to enforce one law, then they should enforce all of them. Why not update the laws and create a more modern, humane, woman-friendly and less bigoted bible? Well, that would mean that the bible has errors! It is possible to believe the good ideas without believing the bad ones, but that would mean that you go against the teachings of Jesus (Matthew 5, 17-20), and you would be a non-christian. That’s what I and many others have done.
These two quotes should guide public policy: Leviticus 24:17 and Numbers 35:30 Both say, “Anyone who takes the life of a human being is to be put to death. ” If I kill someone, then I will be put to death. But the person who puts me to death is taking a life and should be put to death. This goes on and on until there is only one person left on Earth, who must kill themselves for just putting someone to death. These quotes make as much sense as any other quote in this rediculous book.

Ha! You funny, Mr. Shimono!
Jesus had the right idea – when the crowds prepared to stone the woman who was accused of adultery, he said the one who is without sin could cast the first stone. Not one of them could do it. 🙂
