The Billings Outpost

Don’t follow all commands

Let’s applaud President Obama’s approval of equal rights to all citizens including homosexuals.

However, some quote the Bible such as Leviticus 18:22 saying to kill homosexuals.

Could they please clarify these Bible quotes ?

Exodus 35:2 says anyone working on the Sabbath shall be killed. Am I obligated to kill them?

Exodus 21:7 says I may sell my daughter into slavery. Today, what is a fair asking price?

Leviticus 25:44 says I may own slaves if bought from neighboring nations.  May I own Canadians and Mexicans?

Leviticus 20:9 says anyone who curses father or mother shall be put to death. How soon ?

Leviticus 11:10 says it is an abomination to eat shellfish or fish without fins or scales. Is this a lesser abomination than being born homosexual? I don’t agree.

If they quote the Bible condemning homosexuals, should they also say, “Go thou and do likewise” to all the above?

Thankfully, we live in a democracy not a theocracy. America has a secular Constitution. No wonder we’ve been so fortunate since 1789!
