The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible: Part 2

First let me say as a non-believer in religion, that I don’t believe in attacking other’s religion or faith.  My criticisms and attacks are towards religious hypocrisy.In religious circles it is spoken that all sins are equal but we all know in reality this is not true.  In this day and age around the world, homosexuality is the ultimate sin and abomination.

Why is that?

Ever since posting The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible, I have come to a startling conclusion concerning how our society’s usage of the Bible to condone homosexuality is a convenient one.  I don’t know why I or others have not come to this simple yet forthcoming conclusion before.

My conclusion is that out of the 660 plus sins and 50 plus abominations in the Bible (depending on the version), homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman) is technically the only sin or abomination that cannot be committed or broken by heterosexuals.


 
True, a straight person could commit or partake in a gay sexual act; however a true heterosexual (a man or woman who feels they were born heterosexual and have zero homosexual thoughts or desires) can never be homosexual and therefore could never break the abomination that is written in Leviticus 18:22.  Do you see how convenient this is for them?  Many heterosexuals turn a blind eye or give a pass to the many sins they commit but speak out with vigor and venom against homosexuality.In this country we have heterosexuals of all races and ethnicities who are bound by Judeo Christian teachings.  Many (I would argue most) heterosexuals commit sins and abominations without so much as batting an eye.  They may not even think of it as a big deal.  Why; because most of these actions (sins and abominations) are seen as normal or regular just a regular part of life, love and relationships.Why don’t see or hear of lobbying and special interests groups fighting to make constitutional amendments against the eating of shrimp or lobster (Leviticus 11:10)?Why don’t we hear the televangelists calling for laws at the state and federal level  to ban the wearing  of fabrics made of wool and linen (Deuteronomy 22:11)?Why don’t hear religious groups fighting to make constitutional amendments that every man or woman who commits adultery shall be put to death (Leviticus 20:10)?  Well that is an easy question.  The answer is that most of the heterosexuals would be dead.

You can be fired for being a homosexual in over 15 states in America but a man cannot be fired for sleeping with his daughter in law (Leviticus 20:12).

I guess if you are going to commit sin, it helps to be a heterosexual.  So with no further ado (but with much sarcastic amusement) I give you…

The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible: Part 2

Leviticus 11:7-8 “And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you”.  (Next time you are at a Baptist Church Cook Out, make sure to slap the rack of ribs out of the pastor’s greasy hands.)

Picture

Leviticus 19:28 “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD”.

(Yes you read it right.  To the millions of Christians with tattoos, you have committed an affront directly against the LORD and Savior.  Just because you have crucifixes, images of Jesus and the Virgin Mary tattooed all over your bodies, you are still committing sin and will burn in the pits of HELL.  This is Priceless)

Leviticus 19:27 “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. (Simply put, you cannot get a haircut or trim your facial hair or beard).

Deuteronomy 23:1 “He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.” (Yeah if you get your penis cut off, you are not allowed in church.  Maybe they thought was, if you were in church and “prayed up” in the first place, you wouldn’t have gotten your penis cut off).

Leviticus 19:16 “Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour; I am the LORD”. (Gossipers! This is constantly ignored by Christian white women who love Entertainment Tonight and the Christian black women who love to leave the nasty anti homosexual comments on websites like Media Take Out and Bossip.  Off to Hell with you.)
 
Exodus 31:14-15 “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. (If you do any work on the sabbath (house work, yard work, school work, working for a paycheck, etc) you are supposed to be put to death. This is why Chick Fil’ A is closed on Sunday so they will not be killed on Monday.)
 
Corinthians 14:34-35 “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.  And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. (Oh Snap. Daammmnnnn Corinthians!  You went hard on em.  So you saying Bernice King and Joyce Meyers need to STFU before they get pimped slapped?)

PictureDeuteronomy 22:20-21 “But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:  Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you”.

(Sorry but reading the words “damsel” and “whore” makes me laugh.  I would like to know what happens to the man to whom the “damsel whore” gave her virginity to…..crickets)


 
Dear ultra-religious and anti homosexual community.  I know you feel you have a monopoly on God. I know you think your beliefs and your interpretations of the “good book” are the correct interpretations which are better than the slave masters.  I also know you don’t view yourself as cynical and hypocritical but simply view yourself as “normal” Christian.
 
If you are going to elect to classify yourself with the title of “Christian”; know that it is very easy to live a Christian life or lifestyle because you have a very detailed instruction manual called the Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth).  If you pick and choose from this instruction manual, on what you will and will not adhere to, you are a false follower.  You are Christian in name only.For the religious zealots who want to bog down the comments section with your judgmental dogma, I leave you with this;
 
Matthew 7:1-5  “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
 
Luke 6:37  “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;

As for everyone else, please feel free to leave your feedback.

    it just frustrates me and saddens me that everyone wants to attack people for being gay. They don’t know everyone’s path in life but just because they are Gay all of a sudden its open season. Why don’t they get on people who lie, steal, fornicate. Logically I just don’t get it.

    While i understand the point you are making and a very good point it is I have to say that all but one of your abominations are from the old testament leviticus 18:22 which are under the law but since Jesus came died and rose for our sins they have been done away with for we now live under grace. So when ” religious” folk come with that talk all you have to do is remind them of that Jesus him self let it be known that the old testament has been fulfilled. New that is indeed the end of discussion.

    I love how “Christian” people always find an excuse/loophole to justify backwards beliefs and defend their contradictory practices against what is stated in the Bible as “law”. As per a poster in part 1 of this subject defended, certain of these “abominations” are from previous versions of the Bible,or as XyShaun mentioned below (and please don’t take offense, XyShaun) Jesus died for our sins, so those abominations are now null. Really?? So since Jesus died on the cross it all of a sudden made it ok to eat shellfish, and not get stoned for bein’ a Hoe Ass? Why is it that if Jesus “Died for the Sins of Man”, homosexuality has managed to STILL be the CONSTANT focus of the supposed wrath of GOD? That’s the ONLY major sin that somehow EVERYBODY and they mother got the memo on after Jesus died? No, it still exists because a group of MF’rs that were against it for whatever reason long ago, found that the the best way to voice their disgust of it was through religion. Same way religion has been used throughout the ages to control society. I don’t knock peoples’ beliefs at all, especially since my own belief is one of the most scrutinized, especially (and ironically) by the Black “Community”, but when one uses their beliefs to control the masses through fear, then I have no respect for them. And mind you, every practice has it’s perpetrators of this fear mongering, mine as well, however Christianity/Judaism/Islam as a WHOLE use this tactic.
