This made me lawlzz
Ever get tired of people throwing Bible verses at you, and using religion as an excuse for condemning homosexuality? Well, this is something I came across many years ago, and I still laugh every time I read it.
On her radio show, 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 Laws and how 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 uncleanliness - 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.
Your adoring fan.

Due to my irrational meal distribution (aka I ate 4 out of 12 meals I have a week in one day LOL) I ran out of my meal plan last night. However I had 26 dollars left in my wallet, so I starved today and planned on going out to eat tomorrow & use 15 dollars to get a haircut. Unfortunately though, while working out tonight at the gym I lost the cabinet key and ended up paying 25 dollars. I’m super sad right now and hungry T_T
Any suggestions on what I can get for a dollar to sustain me until sunday?
We’ll send you a PDF, we need about 2500-ish, simple, B&W, cheapest one you can get. Just give us the price and Arkh will reimburse you.
If you don’t know, the Creating Change Conference started today, and runs until Sunday. We would like these flyers to be passed out at the convention to spread the word. We will upload the PDF for anyone to be able to download and spread at any convention, your universities, your local queer organization, PoC organization, or QPOC organization, as well as anywhere else you think it might garner any interest.
If you are going and can spread flyers around, or if you can print them and get them to the conference even if you aren’t going, PLEASE send an email to email@example.com.
Ideally, we want to spread at least 10,000 flyers.
Even if you can’t, please reblog this so that someone who can might see it.
Thanks in advance, and prepare for another welcome post to everyone who is just starting up.
SPREAD THE WORD

come to my floor at night and you can see me shower ♥
I just tripped on my way back from my shower and flashed some guy down the hall. I’m so so so sorry T^T Well, unless you liked it, then you’re welcome. ♥
I really miss being alone. I miss having solitude, it’s always been like a comfortable blanket that I wrapped myself around in but with this new lifestyle its practically impossible. I’m grateful for my friends always wanting to keep me company because they don’t want me to feel lonely, but loneliness has been one of the kindest things in my life and I miss it @-@
I do but I’m not very good haha…
i go to uiuc now :D
Wow, I’m very flattered.. I do hope we meet sometime soon in the future.
LOL HEHE OHOHOH IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?
An Indian couple have had their children taken away by Norwegian social workers because they were feeding them with their hands and sleeping in the same bed as them.
Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya lost custody of their three-year-old son and one-year-old daughter eight months ago after authorities branded their behaviour inappropriate.
The drastic measure led to intervention from the Indian government who contacted Norwegian authorities in an a desperate attempt to return the children.
Norwegian Child Protection Services removed the youngsters from their home in May, 2011, leaving their parents horrified with the outcome of the report.
Father Anurup told Indian television channel NDTV: ‘They told me ”why are you sleeping with the children in the same bed?’’.
‘(I told them) this is also a purely cultural issue. We never leave the children in another room and say goodnight to them.’
Anurup added: ‘Feeding a child with the hand is normal in Indian tradition and when the mother is feeding with a spoon there could be phases when she was overfeeding the child.
‘They said it was force feeding. These are basically cultural differences.’
Mrs Bhattacharya said: ‘My son was sleeping with my husband. They said he should sleep separately from your son.’
The parents have been told that they can only see their children twice a year, for an hour during each visit until the kids turn 18 when they will no longer be bound by the current restrictions under current Norwegian law.
Despite the Indian government’s intervention, Norwegian officials are refusing to meet the request for any further explanation.
The Norwegian government has taken these people’s children and now will not allow them to see each other, over simple xenophobia. Absolutely tragic.
