Letter to George Bush - from
unknown devout Christian
you for doing so much to educate people regarding
God's law. I have learned a great deal from
you 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 Laws and how to
Leviticus 25:44 states that I may 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 to Canadians.
Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
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
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.
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?
I have a neighbor 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, or should I ask the police
to do it?
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?
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?
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 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?
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)?
know you have studied these things extensively
and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such
matters, so I am confident you can help.
you again for reminding us that God's word is
eternal and unchanging.
