Dear President Bush:
Dear President Bush:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have
learned a great deal from you and I too now support a Constitutional
amendment banning same sex marriage. As you said "in the eyes of God
marriage is based between a man a woman." 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 them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it is an
abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of
God's Laws and how we Americans are supposed to follow them.

1. 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 Canadians. Can you clarify?
Why can't I own Canadians?

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 uncleanness ? Leviticus 15: 19-24. The problem is how
do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense at the
question.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odor for the Lord ? Leviticus 1:9. The problem is my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2
clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill
him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination - Leviticus 11:10 ? it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of
abomination?


7. Leviticus 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 Leviticus
19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Leviticus 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 Leviticus19:19 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, and enjoys listening to Howard Stern on
the radio. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting
the whole town together to stone them? (Leviticus 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? (Leviticus 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.

1. This should be sent to red state legislators

and all evangelical churches. Their selective scripture picking is at best laughable.

2. Oh, that's a good one.
Yeah, make it a petition and have thousands of people sign it and send it to Bush and all of Congress.

Then, plast it all over the internet.

See how they react. LOL!

3. All of your references
are coming from the Old Testament of the Bible. Old Testament and New Testament law are different!
