Saw this on another list, thought y'all'd get a kick out of it. Hopefully
everyone here knows who Dr. Laura Schlesinger is, and that she's come under hot
water for publicly stating that homosexuality is deviant behavior:

> Dear Dr. Laura,
> Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have

> 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

> I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as it suggests in Exodus

> I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her

> Lev. 25:44 states that I may buy slaves from the nations that are around

> Canadians. Can you clarify?
> I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2

> A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an

> I don't agree. Can you settle this?
> Lev. 20:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a

> I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you

> unchanging.
> Carry The Fire,
> Buck
