    silly faggot

    leviticus was only given to the hebrews and does not apply to you or to your gay lover

    averteimporta

    LOL natedog is true why you just want to read a single text on the bible and used at your favor? The bible is not just a book is a Library of books and every single text has a meaning and a purpose… Please explain Leviticus 19:27 and 21:5. Do these verses mean that it is wrong to shave, or cut one’s hair? It was the custom of some heathen nations to cut and trim their beards and hair into particular shapes in honor of some pagan god. The Egyptians, for example, had their hair cut short and in a… Read more »

    … Dumbass. There is *no where* in Leviticus that says you can’t cut your hair. No where. If you’re going to try and argue semantics, have a fucking accurate argument.

    If you wanted to say, though, that we were skipping the rules that state anytime a priest sins he has to offer a bull’s kidney, fat, and liver as a burnt offering or that you can’t have sex with a woman on her period or you have to eat kosher food, then it’d be a different story and correct.

    Leviticus 19:27 (NIV)

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

    Dragyn

    My book says, “You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.” That doesn’t mean don’t cut.

    Luke Magnifico

    How do you round off your hair? Push it back into your scalp?

    Please explain Leviticus 19:27 and 21:5. Do these verses mean that it is wrong to shave, or cut one’s hair? It was the custom of some heathen nations to cut and trim their beards and hair into particular shapes in honor of some pagan god. The Egyptians, for example, had their hair cut short and in a certain way, so that what remained appeared in the form of a circle surrounding the head (the halo was derived from this). In another instance, a round spot would be shaved off. Both of these forms are indications of sun god worship. Modern… Read more »

    I’m pretty sure most homosexual rights activists are well aware that there are other writings which condemn homosexuality (they live with them every day). That someone rebuffs the most prolifically cited source at (what I’m assuming is) a gay right parade is hardly evidence that they are ignorant. The guy has roughly an 18 inch by 24 inch placard in which to display his viewpoint. Should he make commentary about an obscure, rarely mentioned argument against homosexuality or would it be better to confront the anti-homosexuality reference that is part of the foundation of three of the worlds’ largest religions?… Read more »

    I love how people can pick and choose what part of the bible effects them. if the bible is holy law then shouldn’t everything in the bible effect you? or if something is inconvenient it doesn’t matter I’m not sure how it works.

    WistfulD

    Thank you for injecting an actual cohesive argument into this discussion.

    There are many ways that people deal with this conundrum. Usually it boils down to something along the lines of the Bible is half literal word of God and half historical narrative of the Israeli people, complete with folklore and traditions, etc. The part that I hold dear is clearly the word of God and the stuff that I ignore are just the cultural traditions of the Israeli people at the time it was written down.

    “I love how people can pick and choose what part of the bible effects them. if the bible is holy law then shouldn’t everything in the bible effect you? or if something is inconvenient it doesn’t matter I’m not sure how it works.” Has nothing to do with picking-n-choosing. Isreal was a theocracy, those books were their law. i’m not an isrealite. not that hard a concept gentlemen, if we put on our thinking caps. like the scriptures state (which you guys must know since you’ve read it before you decided to criticize it, right?) the law got crucified along… Read more »

    the only real part of the bible to commit to is the 10 commandments, which are a part of common laws anyway i.e. dont murder, dont steal etc

    the anti-homosexuality ideals are just common sense that every normal person should follow

    DMYTRIW WDS

    And you can take half of those commandments away too if you have any common sense. ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ How about I just not worship any? TWO: ‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image–any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.’ I think I’ll be OK breaking that one too.

    Don’t forget the one about not to cook a calf in its mother’s milk. Its in the other 10 commandments. Yeah, the bible has two, probably because there are two accounts of these events put together as one with clumsy bronze age cut and paste jobs.

    2nd Commandment ends like this, and everyone always leaves it out:

    for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    Any religious person I’ve met uses their faith to manage themselves and be a better person. Sorry but the gay community could use a lot of that. Didn’t anyone ever winder why they are affected by AIDS more? Its because their communities accept and encourage a lifestyle that involves taking risks whether that be with recreational drugs or unprotected sex. So ya maybe the bible says some dumb shit.

    AIDS affected the gay (by which I assume you mean white male homosexual Americans, because that’s the only demographic where gays have been disproportionately affected by AIDS. Ever been to subsaharan Africa? AIDS isn’t really a gay thing there) because no one knew that the disease existed, and so therefore didn’t take precautionary measures.

    “Any religious person I’ve met uses their faith to manage themselves and be a better person?”

    You don’t get out much, do you?

    Think Tank

    Religious people tend to differ from those people that use religion. I find it 100% possible that he knows people who have a faith and use it for self improvement. We all do, though we might not know it because they keep it to themselves and don’t proselytize. People who have an agenda of hate that use works of religion (i.e. the Bible), are far from religious. They cherry-pick parts of a book that meet their needs and make sure that everyone knows how much better than everyone else they are.

    fracked again

    You can’t separate the religious in this manner. They all would call themselves religious. You can go up to any of the Phelps cult and tell them they aren’t really religious, but they will disagree and tell you that you are the one that isn’t religious.

    nyoki

    Agreed. Some people use the arts of the bible that says be good and some use the parts that let them punish. Both are religious.

    Think Tank

    You absolutely can separate them this way. People classify themselves in a better light to impress others. If you ask any person on the planet if they’re good in bed, they will most likely say they are. Just because a person considers themselves religious, doesn’t mean that when their actions are held up to scrutiny by others, they would or should be seen as such. The Phelps church is not religious because they are doing exactly what I said… cherry-picking parts of a book to forward their own agenda, as well as using the facade of being a church to… Read more »

    The thing about religion is that people choose to be good for a reward.

    People who believe in heaven and all that stuff want to get there so they have good behaviour.

    Athiests on the other hand want to be good just for the sake of being good. They don’t need to have a reward for it. They don’t need a afterlife insurance. They just want to be decent people and thats it.

    Let me preface this by saying that I’m an agnostic that believes in God, but not the church.

    I think there will be more Athiests in heaven than preachers(OR more precisely televangelists).

    That’s complete garbage. No one is born altruistic. The fact that we seem to be able to act in an altruistic manner doesn’t change that we are designed to survive w/in the group AND as an individual. There’s a developmental stage where we’re able to have empathy, it’s how we learn; if it’s not practiced, it goes away.

    origuy

    Who said anything about being born altruistic? We learn that from our parents, and the world around us.

    I do have to agree with your premise that we are designed (by Evolution) to survive in that way. There are Christians out there that lack empathy (WBC for example), so I guess you could say that that’s proof of your statement “if it’s not practiced, it goes away”.

    So how do you explain atheists that give of their time, and money for no reward?

    nyoki

    Goddamnit, a long comment and I had to sign in AFTER I clicked submit! Fuck! Ok. *ohmmmmmmmmmmmmm* No reward? There’s always a reward. Regardless, we need empathy to live and survive w/in the group. That doesn’t mean it’s restricted to the group. We can feel other people’s pain and we try to help, soothe, whatever is needed. I said something about being born not-altruistic to make a point that we learn altruism not from one’s self. It means we have to figure out both our shared and not-shared moralities. We need to explain our ethics, where they are from, why,… Read more »
