letter to bush
Dear President Bush,
Congratulations on your election victory and for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would
propose and support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. As you said "in the eyes of God marriage is based between a man and 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 to be an abomination... End of debate.
However, I do need some advice from you regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how best 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 - Lev.15:19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking,
but most women take offense.
4. 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?
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 - Lev.11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?
Are there 'degrees' of abomination?
7. 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?
8. 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?
9. 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?
10. 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)
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.

Either way, it is scary how selective individuals can be in their convenient faith....

Did he not say something like that in the second debate with Kerry? I thought he did but i could be wrong.
I know for fact i have heard him say, Marriage is a sanction between a man and a woman. but i can't recall if he used a bible reference.. im sure he did.

Great post Hung..i don't really think there is anything to debate.
Bush clings to the bible like it's the last piece of shiet paper

But as we respect someone's rights, and as we profess tolerance, we shouldn't change -- or have to change -- our basic views on the sanctity of marriage. I believe in the sanctity of marriage. I think it's very important that we protect marriage as an institution, between a man and a woman.I proposed a constitutional amendment. The reason I did so was because I was worried that activist judges are actually defining the definition of marriage, and the surest way to protect marriage between a man and woman is to amend the Constitution.

Didn't you here? Bush is a decendant of Jesus.
You got to stick to your roots.

The bible is possibly the dumbest book I ever read. Everyone of those verses are as stated. Christians are truly people afraid to think for themselves.

religion is so confusing and contradicting. We need a new one like when people tried to get everyone speaking esperanto.

Now that you have insulted those of us here that honor the bible, and attempt to live our life by it, maybe you can tell us by which model you live your life by
In order to put this information in context, how old are you?

I agree Bigen. PB, have you actually read the Bible?! If you have read the whole thing, then something must have intrigued you, and if you haven't don't talk crap about something you probably know nothing about.

But I think you agree with me in that you apply yourself, because of the way that you were raised, by your "bible thumpers" family.

my mom taught me right from wrong and to be a good person, thats about it. as long as i can remember ive wanted to get out of work, ive always looked for ways to make money with out working, and thts what i do now. i work about 20 hours a week tops. i see my mom who is sooo scared to try anything in life, and i see my dad who pretty much taught me what not to do in my life and say i never wanna be like that. so i guess you can say they taught me, but id say they taught me what NOT to be. threw my life ive found mentors, whether it be my old boss's (who were business owners) to some of my friends. im how i am now cause of the people i surround myself with, we all are very focused on being rich, and wont stop till that happens. im the way i am cause i have a drive inside, even my mom says she has no idea of where it came from.

Ok, I was way off base,
So, you believe that you get you drive from seeing how your parents have lived their lives and don't want that for yourself, that I can understand. There are extremes in anything, don’t get in the trap where you find yourself more concerned about making money, than living a good life. I would also be very careful with my own rules, it is very simple to twist them in to problems, such as the ones that your father had.
I work over 50 hours a week most of the time, like your father did, I wasn't able to find any get rich quick schemes. I also have a lot of Alcoholics in my family tree, I have been very fortunate not to have had followed in their footsteps.

as for working i wont let myself work my life away, thats not living in my eyes, its just working, and if im here on this planet just to work then i might as well be dead. im here to experience life, and thats what i wanna do, even if its just sitting in a park on a nice day in teh summer. being able to do what i want, wheni want is the big key in my life

Try metaphysics. It makes more sense, it isn't "do as I say or face ****ation because God is so powerful yet so insecure."
