    Several states have legalized both same sex marriage and the use of marijuana. Is that Biblical?

    Sure it is. Doesn't it say in Leviticus that homosexual's should be stoned?

    See? We just THOUGHT we understood that verse! :D

    Actually, Leviticus is a manual for Jewish priests (the Levites). That also explains why there are so many rules in that book. So, if you're not Jewish, nor a member of the priestly class, then obviously that is not the book you should be using. Nice cherry picking though.

    As far as cannabis? Well................it WAS one of the ingredients of the Holy Anointing Oil of Israel, and Jesus was anointed with it.
