Dr. Laura Schlesinger is a well known radiopersonality in the US, advising people who phone in with their problems. Recently she advised one of the callers, referring to 3. Moses 18:22, that homosexuality is obscene and can under no circumstances be tolerated. The following is an open letter to Dr. Schlesinger from an anonymous American citizen: Dear Dr. Schlesinger, Thank you for your efforts in teaching the people about God's commandments. I have learnt a lot from you and I try to share this knowledge with as many people as I can. If anyone tries to defend homosexuality I only refer to 3. Moses 18:22 where it is clearly written that homosexuality is unacceptable. That ends the discussion. Now I need some advise how to live by the word of God: 1. Each time I burn an ox in my garden as a sacrifice to God I know that this pleases the Lord. (3 Moses 1:9) The problem is my neighbours, who do not like the smell. 2. I want to sell my daughter as a slave (2. Moses 21:7) With today's price level, what would be the right price? 3. In 3. Moses 24:24 it is clearly stated that I can have both male and female slaves, as long as they are bought from a neighbouring country. A friend of mine claims that this only applies to Mexicans and not Canadians. I need help on this. Can I have a Canadian slave? 4. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. 2. Moses 35:2 clearly states that he must be killed. Am I morally obliged to do this myself? 5. One of my friends says that even if eating shellfish is not acceptable (3.Moses 11:10), homosexuality is worse. I disagree - who is right? 6. 3. Moses 21:20 clearly states that I must now approach God's altar if I do not see well. I am nearsighted and wear glasses. Must my eyesight be perfect, or is there a certain tolerance? 7. Most of my friends go to the hairdresser's. They cut their sideburns and trim their beards. 3. Moses 19:27 clearly defines this as a sin. How should they be punished? 8. I have read in 3. Moses 11:7-8 that I cannot touch any part of a dead pig, as this will make me unclean. Can I play American football if I wear gloves? 9. My uncle has a farm. He is sinning against 3.Moses 19:19 as he has two different crops in the same field. His wife is as bad because she wears textiles made from two different types of cloth - a mixture of cotton and polyester. My uncle also swears a lot. It really required the we gather the people of the village to stone them to death (3. Moses 24:10-16). Is it not easier to burn them during a family gathering the way we should do with people who have sex with their relatives (3. Moses 20:14)? I know that you are good at advising on problems such as the above and am sure that you can help me. Thank you for constantly reminding us that God's word eternal and unalterable.
