“The Bible says there will be consequences for electing Obama. Now they are starting. Earthquake in KY, Blizzard in NY, now explosions in IN. This is just the beginning.”

A response:
I wanted to ask you a couple of questions. I’m interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She’s a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be?
While thinking about that, can I ask another? One of my staff insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police?
Here’s one that’s really important because we’ve got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point?
Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side?
Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads?

    Earth shaking questions with obvious answers…because the bible says so!

  2. Great and very legitimate questions. I wish we could get a proper reply.
    I heard that one of the States in the USA (wish I could remembr which) has posted signs along some roads signalling a variety of conspicuous rock formations and giving their dating – all in millions of years of course – just a simple way to fight creationism.
