The Lesser Discussed Abominations of the Bible

We all know the usual scripture quoted and drilled into our minds and consciousness;
Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

But for some strange reasons (sarcasm) religious folk never talk about the other abominations in the Bible.  Most likely because these lesser discussed and quoted abominations directly affect them. 
So below is a short list of a few that are never discussed on voting ballots as potential new constitutional amendments.
Leviticus 11:10 “But anything in the seas or the rivers that has not fins and scales, of the swarming creatures in the waters and of the living creatures that are in the waters, is an abomination to you. They shall remain an abomination to you; of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination. Everything in the waters that has not fins and scales is an abomination to you.”  “And these you shall have in abomination among the birds, they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the osprey, the kite, the falcon according to its kind, every raven according to its kind, the ostrich, the nighthawk, the sea gull, the hawk according to its kind, the owl, the cormorant, the ibis, the water hen, the pelican, the carrion vulture, the stork, the heron according to its kind, the hoopoe, and the bat.”

(Yeah you can’t eat shrimp, lobster, calamari, chicken, turkey, or duck.  Good bye Red Lobster and KFC)






Leviticus 11:42 “Whatever goes on its belly, and whatever goes on all fours, or whatever has many feet, all the swarming things that swarm upon the earth, you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.”
(So no hamburgers or Curry Goat?)

Isaiah 66:17 “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the midst of those who eat the flesh of pigs and rats and other abominable things–they will meet their end together,” declares the LORD.
(No sausage, bacon, pork chops, ribs or pig’s feet)

Deuteronomy 22:5 “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”
(Sorry ladies…no professional pant suits and you have to throw the apple bottom jeans away)


 Deuteronomy 22:11 “Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.”

(Damn, there goes the fall and spring collections)

Leviticus 15:16 “If a man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water and be unclean until the evening. 
(I would never get out of the tub)

Leviticus20:10 “And the man that committeth adultery with  another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s  wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death”. (Yes cheating wives and husbands are supposed to be put to death!)

Leviticus 20:11 “And the man that lieth with his father’s  wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put  to death; their blood shall be upon them”. 
(And nasty cheating wives and husbands are supposed to be put to death!)

Leviticus 20:12 “And if a man lie with his daughter in law,  both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their  blood shall be upon them”.
(Jerry Springer and Maury Povich would not have talk shows)

Deuteronomy 24:1-4 “When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house, and if she goes and becomes another man’s wife, and the latter husband dislikes her and writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the LORD, and you shall not bring guilt upon the land which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance.”
(Yeah, what he said.  The wife sure does get passed around a lot)
