    As much as I hate copy and paste if found this on www.gonzo.org and thought it would elicit interesting commentary:

    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 I 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 him that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific laws and how to best follow them.

    a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour 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 uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.

    d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring 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 neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obliged 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?

    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.

    Your devoted disciple and adoring fan

    Perhaps I should pull a STANG and spam it into other threads as I think its a nice piece of work and not getting the attention it deserves.

    I appreciate you making it clear this was a cut and paste from the beginning.

    This is a great post. It needs to show it's head once in a while every place the fundies show up.

    Did Laura ever respond to this?

    I know, I'm going straight to Hell, but, I sprayed coffee out my nose the first time I read this. I'll have to see if I can find a reply from the good Doctor.

    The only thing amusing to me is that you all still think the OT laws for ancient Hebrews are still binding to Christians AFTER we've explained it to you several times. Ha.

    So God was wrong, and finally got it right?

    Well, well, well, look who's back.

    BTW: Have you checked out the formal debate between Jason Gastrich and Doug Kruger over at IIDB entitled "Is Faith in God Reasonable,"?

    Gastich's style reminds me a lot of you. He even praises the UT-Dallas Seminary. It's still early in the debate. Perhaps you'd like to give a quick read and help out some your battle weary Xtian brethren in the Peanut Gallery.

    So did you stop following the ten commandments?

    I'm still unclear on your position. If I remember, you claim Jesus "fulfilled the law, and didn't break it" as per one of his own quotes. But if he didn't break it it should still exist...

    As I am unclear on your position could you go over it again? I honestly do not mean to make you keep writing the same thing over and over again to be annoying.

    Your sense of humor is definitely on the blink Darfius. Some things are just meant to be funny. Surely you see why I find this hilarious? You've got to mellow out otherwise your head is sure to explode.

    <edit> Your contention that you don't hold the Old Testament as binding is bollox. You've frequently used it to support your arguements.... word of God and all that remember.

    His position is pretty clear. Some laws were only meant for the Hebrew people of that time (i.e. the laws Darfius no longer thinks we should follow). Other laws were meant to be eternal (i.e. all the laws Darfius uses to condemn others).

    The Darfius method is simple really.

    1) Approach a dilemma with a strong desire for self-justification.
    2) Identify the problematic empirical evidence
    3) Think up an arbitrary dichotomy or definition that harmonizes the issue
    4a) If some one points out that step 3 creates a new dilemma in regards to previous harmonizations of related issues, consider this a new dilemma. Return to step 1 and repeat the process.
    4b) If no one says anything, then you have God-given absolute truth. Disseminate with great self-righteousness.

    The Goddess of a Thousand Names would surely say that there are many Hells... all of our own making if we chose the wrong path... don't you think?
