DEAR DR. LAURA

On her radio show recently, Dr Laura Schlesinger  said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination  according to Leviticus 18:22, and  cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is an open letter to  Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank  you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a  great deal from your show, and 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. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding  some other elements of God's Law  and how to follow them.

1. 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?

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 uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The  problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed 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?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. The passage clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

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.

Your adoring fan,

(you may have seen a similar speech given on an episode of The West Wing, NBC television - this version turned up on the internet. I have removed the person's name at the end since I could not confirm it's validity.)
