10. I would be nice if he actually READ Leviticus...
Leviticus, for those of you who haven't read it (it makes a good sleeping pill, but that's about it), is a LONG book of do's and don't's, written for a group of wandering nomads in the Arabian desert. Much of this is no longer relevant to modern Judaism, much less Christianity. Besides one or two solid statements of faith, it has little value anymore.

People like this always like to cherry-pick the statements they agree with, and ignore those that they don't. If he actually read the passage, three verses prior (Lev 20:10) says that anyone that sleeps with another psrson's spouse should be executed as well. Under that, most of the Republican party should be executed. We need to realize that this book had a different purpose back then. Since modern Christians ignore just about every law in this book now (all the cleanliness laws, rules about slaves, kosher food, etc.), Christians should not pick and choose the laws they like and only follow them.
