    Description:
        On her radio show recently, Dr Laura Schlesinger
    said that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus
    18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. This response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet.

    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 Law and how to follow them.

    1. 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?

    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. 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?

    5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. The passage clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

    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 abomination?

    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,
    James M. Kauffman, Ed.D.

      Hey-
    I adored this! i'm not really religious but i believe in god. the one thing that bugs me most about a few stauch believers is their undying faith in the bible. stuff like this is a good way to get people thinking not only about homosexuallity but about their beliefs. Thanks for sharing!

      I like the respond of M. Kauffman, it shows that relegion isn't perfect. I have no idea who Dr Laura Schlesinger is, I live in Belgium.
    Why can't people accept that there are people who are homosexual, I know people who are and their is nothing wrong with them.
    I'm not very religious, last time I went to church would be on a schooltrip or something like that. Never been a believer, I prefer proof and stuff, though I must admit there isn't proof for everything. I'm not saying that everyone should be like this, some people can't live without religion, but some things really are stupid. This is just my opinion though.
    I'm glad you submitted this, i enjoyed reading it.
