             DR LAURA AND THE PENTATEUCH
For those of you that are not following the recent controversy that has to do with Laura Schlessinger: she is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people 
who call in to her radio show. Paramount Television Group is currently producing a "Dr. Laura" television show. Recently she has become a convert to Judaism, and 
now she is Ba'al T'shuvah. Recently, she has made some statements about homosexuals that has caused the Canadian anti-hate laws to censure her....The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura which was posted on the internet....

                                                           (Why have we got this letter on our site?)

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 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 Leviticus 18:22 that clearly states it to be an 
abomination. End of debate. 

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

a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord. (Lev. 1:9).The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour 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 offence. 

d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring 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 neighbour 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. 

OK. What's the point of this letter?
--  Fundamentalist Christians claim they follow the teachings of the Bible, literally,
ALL of it! and that none of us have the right to decide which bits we want to believe .
They claim that homosexuals are 'choosing to ignore the bibles teachings on homosexuality'.

But what are THEY doing?

Do you know ANY Christian who follows all of the above teachings, to the letter?

So, here's the MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION:

When did fundamentalist Christians decide which bits of the Bible THEY
were going to follow????   AND WHO DECIDED THAT???

(For answers on who decided what went into the Bible and when ,
do some research on the History of various Councils,
eg Council of Trent in 1546 )
