Dear BuyBull Thumpers,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and 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 him that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific laws and how to best follow them.

a) 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?

b) 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?

c) 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.

d) 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?

e) 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?

f) 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?

g) 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?

h) 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?

i) 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?

j) 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, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted disciple and adoring fan.

Sorry to dissapoint you 'Hetero-male,' but homosexuality is not against nature, becuase of the simple fact it has been observed in nature, among almost all species.
Dolphins do it! Sheeps do it! Monkeys do it! Giraffes do it! Dogs do it! Mouses do it!  Penguins do it! Flies do it! Birds do it! In fact homosexuality has been observed in most, if not all, animals. Homosexuality can't be unnatural when we have the whole Animal Kingdom out of the closet!

Homophobia is completely unnatural.  It is a learned hatred based on fear, insecurity, low self esteem etc.
A true "hetero-man" is indifferent to homosexuality, doesn't feel threatened by gays and don't feel the need to hate them merely because of whom they fall in love with.
You have a great lesson to learn from those penguins.  Homophobia is a sub-animal trait only found in humans.

I have hear that recycled propaganda from every queer worshipper like you they don't  provide evidence to back this up. homosexuals cannot procreate naturally because they don't sleep with the opposite sex. these animals are showing homosxuality because they are in CAPTIVITY they were captured from the wild and locked up away from thier habitat 24 hours a day so they cannot mate with the opposite sex so they have thier sexual urges build up and they fuck anything that moves so those studies are a fraud. you  just swallow up everything the fag worshippers tells you and you too damn lazy to do some research on your own. If you want to know if animals are gay  study the ones in the wild  not the ones that are locked up in labs

Thier is no such thing as homophobia  I don't fear gays a normal heterosexual is disgusted by homosexuality and don't want people to force homosexuality down thier throats. don't learn lessons from penguins that are in captivity and locked up that they cannot mate with the opposite sex in thier mating seasons.  it is you that is putting yourself below these dumb locked up animals by looking to them as mentors  so as off now i will refer to queers and queer worshippers as animals  normal humans don't look to these dumb creatures as mentors

don't you have any original thoughts of your own?  you folks are always regirgitating everything these animals are telling you

LMAO.  What an ass you proved to be.  I guess you didn't even bother to read the documentary, ignoramus.  This is not name-calling, you are in fact an ignoramus!  
The penguins in the New York aquarium have a commitment of more than 8 years, they have sex, homosexual sex to be specific.  This penguins have access to females, but are not interested.
The same has been observed in the Wild with monkeys, deers etc., so is not that scientists are purposely forcing animals to practice homosexuality, they do it all by theirselves.

Do I expect homophobes to acknowledge their homophobia? Puleeeze!
Therefore I will not even address that point.
secondly, you are not normal, not at all.
A 'normal' heterosexual is not disgusted by homosexuality, simply because they don't imagine themselves in homosexual acts like homophobes do, to fuel their internal homophobia.
When confronted, a male homophobe always attemps to empathize how "disgusting he finds two men having anal sex."  Furthermore, they picture themselves having sex with other males, and believe they are disgusted by it.
Why do you think this is the first picture the pops up in their head?
Why they fantasize so much with homosexual sex?
You might find the answer in the following study:  


New Study Links Homophobia with Homosexual Arousal
---

WASHINGTON -- Psychoanalytic theory holds that homophobia -- the fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that some ostensibly heterosexual people hold for gay individuals -- is the result of repressed homosexual urges that the person is either unaware of or denies. A study appearing in the August 1996 issue of the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association (APA), provides new empirical evidence that is consistent with that theory.

Researchers at the University of Georgia conducted an experiment involving 35 homophobic men and 29 nonhomophobic men as measured by the Index of Homophobia scale. All the participants selected for the study described themselves as exclusively heterosexual both in terms of sexual arousal and experience.

Each participant was exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual and lesbian videotapes (but not necessarily in that order). Their degree of sexual arousal was measured by penile plethysmography, which precisely measures and records male tumescence.

Men in both groups were aroused by about the same degree by the video depicting heterosexual sexual behavior and by the video showing two women engaged in sexual behavior. The only significant difference in degree of arousal between the two groups occurred when they viewed the video depicting male homosexual sex: 'The homophobic men showed a significant increase in penile circumference to the male homosexual video, but the control [nonhomophobic] men did not.'

Broken down further, the measurements showed that while 66% of the nonhomophobic group showed no significant tumescence while watching the male homosexual video, only 20% of the homophobic men showed little or no evidence of arousal. Similarly, while 24% of the nonhomophobic men showed definite tumescence while watching the homosexual video, 54% of the homophobic men did.

When asked to give their own subjective assessment of the degree to which they were aroused by watching each of the three videos, men in both groups gave answers that tracked fairly closely with the results of the objective physiological measurement, with one exception: the homophobic men significantly underestimated their degree of arousal by the male homosexual video.

Do these findings mean, then, that homophobia in men is a reaction to repressed homosexual urges, as psychoanalysis theorizes? While their findings are consistent with that theory, the authors note that there is another, competing theoretical explanation: anxiety. According to this theory, viewing the male homosexual videotape may have caused negative emotions (such as anxiety) in the homophobic men, but not in the nonhomophobic men. As the authors note, 'anxiety has been shown to enhance arousal and erection,' and so it is also possible that 'a response to homosexual stimuli [in these men] is a function of the threat condition rather than sexual arousal per se. These competing notions can and should be evaluated by future research.'

Article: 'Is Homophobia Associated With Homosexual Arousal?' by Henry E. Adams, Ph.D., Lester W. Wright, Jr., Ph.D. and Bethany A. Lohr, University of Georgia, in Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Vol. 105, No. 3, pp 440-445.

Spiritual authority comes from the Holy Spirit, and He is the Truth.  He will only endorse with His authority those who are true, who live what they preach.  There is no question that the church has to fight the enemy.  In Romans chapter 14 it says "Let us not therfore judge one another any more: but judge this rather,
that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother's way."  He says it would be better for us not to have been born than to cause even one of His little ones to stumble and warns us not to become a stumbling block Matthew 18.
God has instructed us to Love all people and to not be judgemental.  You must look closely in the blble on the subject of homosexuality.  It is openly disobeyig Godll  Our chirldren need to have mentors to lead them in what is our final hour.  For all those who are apposed to
disobeying God I would strongley recommend
the way is to not buy products that support
that which is:  Mc Donalds (hamberger fast food)  Kodak,  Revlon,  Target and Gmc.  They
are the advertisers for "Gay GuY and the straight guy.  Don't buy any of their products
and that will make a true stand on the issue.
I Love God and Jesus Chirst and love and pray
for all guy and lesbians . God bless America

This is rich.

What you fail to realize, "Guest", is that the Word of God came down as a Man and died for our Sins. Before He did that, He preached. He gave a new doctrine for life. Many laws of the old testament are outdated and no longer useful.

Jesus preached for an ever changing will. He gave laws that would help us live until His return, and in doing so cast out many old testament rules.

So before you bash the Bible, consider where you're getting the sources.

Oh yeah, and in case you decided to refut as many do by saying..

"Well, if the old testament is out of date, then so are the anti-gay laws in it"

Read Acts. Read Romans. Read Revelation. Specifically read Romans 1:26-27. God was quite clear on this matter even in the new testament.

And before you start with the "Why would God make someone gay if it was a sin" stuff, think about this:

I am attracted to other men. Women don't do anything for me physically.

Am I gay? No. Does my sex drive tell me to be? Yes. Do I listen? HELL NO.

I've never had gay sex. I never will. I don't act like an effeminate sissy, I act like a man. I have a girlfriend, not a boyfriend, and I plan on getting married and having children and living my life God's way.

Being Gay is a choice. It's not like we're mindless animals forced to obey our sex drives.

Oh, and homosexuality is psychological. Read up on it and learn about the thousands of men who took down their attractions for other men and developed attractions to women. All it takes is motivation to change and a little strength of mind and character.

How can you claim that all the homosexuals "choose" their lifestyle based on their sex drives? Being gay is NOT all about sex for god's sake!! There are many gay kids, teenagers who realise that they are gay without even thinking about sex.  So, if "homosexuality is immoral," it is some sort of bizarre curse on kids by .  In that case,  this is an arbitrary and cruel God, and nothing we could do could appease or please It. There is no wonder why the suicide rate among gay teenagers is so disproportionately high,  they must presumably feel that if they cannot stop being gay, it's best for them to stop existing.  And needless to say, most gay teens that committed suicide come from Christian homes.

Why can't consensual incest be legal then? Incest happens among animals in nature all the time. You can't help it if you biologically have the Oedipus thing going on. If marriage is only between *any* two consenting adults, why do half the states bother to ban first-cousin marriages? Why does it even have to be 'two'? If more than one woman are willing to be married to the same man, then the government shouldn't take away their rights to be one, humongous happy family.

Er...Gays don't ask for the right to marry his brothers or her sister. And gays don't ask for the right to marry more than one person, They just want to marry with a person with the same sexuality as theirs who is not their family member. It is the same standard of Heterosexual's Marriage. Ok?

It's a great debate that you have here. I am not religious but have a great deal of respect for people who derive strength from their faith. It's really about loving each other surely? I'm sure God did not intend us to go around hating each other (which is what you are all doing to one-another). Why are you quoting Leviticus re homosexuality? There is nothing worse that taking parts of what you believe to be the word of god and using it against your enemies. That IS morally wrong and I'm sure the big daddy upsatairs will have a word or two to say to you when you get there about that. If you are going to do that then I hope you have enough pigeons to burn and barns to stay in until you are no longer 'unclean'. Brotherhood and compassion are far more atractive traits compared to hypocrisy.

So what your saying is because animals do it its ok??? HOW LOW CAN YOU GET? Seriousley, because my dog wipes his butt on the carpet does that make it ok? the bottom line is animals have nothing to do with this, if anything they should be used as an example of what to avoid! We are a civilized culture of intelligent human beings not a rouge group of wild boar rolling in there own $HIT!

No, that is not the point. The point is that it's not a concious decision and it's not against nature, because even animals have homosexual relations. And we all know that animals cannot make choices to that degree. That was the point.

And homosexuality is not the same as things such as incest, pedophilia, bestality, and the like.

Why? Because homosexuality doesn't hurt anyone (either directly or indirectly). Laws are made to protect us and homosexuality is not harmful, therefore it's not something to be protected from. It doesn't physically or mentally hurt the people involved in the relationship and it doesn't hurt the people who aren't.

Incest harms children who are a result of incestual sex, because almost all children who are a result of those relationships have physical or mental defects. Pedophilia hurts children, as well. Bestality hurts animals. Homosexuals do not hurt ANYONE. That's why. Being homosexual does not hurt anyone anymore than being heterosexual does.

Who cares what the bible says?  Is it for, against, or neutral towards homosexuality??  

You are all missing the point...

So many people are saying that same-sex marriages should not be legal on the basis that the bible condemns it.  Our Christian centered society should only support the morals of the majority?  This thinking may have been acceptable during biblical times, but it is no longer legal for religion to dictate law.  While religion can provide a certain community with an attitude towards homosexuality, this community has no right to put their beliefs on others.

The first amendment to the United States Constitution states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”.  The United States Government must remain impartial to ALL religious groups, which would apply also to laws or policies which would stem from the religious ideas of lawmakers. Therefore, the religious policies and moralities of one group should not have legal advantages over another. This would apply to gay marriage because when someone is quoting from the bible in order to convince someone to enforce their religious ideas, those involved in the issue at hand are at the mercy of a religion that they do not necessarily believe in. The argument that the bible condemns homosexuality or that marriage is between a man and a women and therefore gay marriage should not be allowed is void. It brings religion into an area where it has no relevance, and where it's influence would be unconstitutional.  

The United States was founded on the basis of civil rights for all.  Excluding same-sex couples from marriage is a blatant act of discrimination and sexism.  As long as intelligent people understand that homosexuals are as emotionally and sexually attracted to the same sex as heterosexuals are to the opposite sex, then there is no human reason on earth why marriage should be granted to one group and not the other.  While the government as a whole may not approve of a marriage between members of the same sex, they have no right to impose their sense of morality on these couples.

American history is speckled with the stories of different groups fighting for their rights. The country was fought for and founded upon the idea of religious rights for all people, and we all currently enjoy these rights. Women are enjoying the right to vote and run for office. Men and women of all racial backgrounds can vote and run for office. Just recently, the right to marry outside of your race was won. Soon, Americans will be allowed to be legally married to whomever they have fallen in love with, sex and gender notwithstanding. A country full of so much diversity cannot go on for so long without realizing their lack of compassion and empathy. If this policy of lawful discrimination is allowed to continue, then the liberty and freedom this country was founded upon have been lost.

LOL--and many animals eat their vomit, throw their poop, and eat dead carcasses. Should we follow that example?
