“Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it…” Leviticus 18:23
Came across a story over at ABC News, with the following headline, “Man accused of having relations with dog.”
It’s safe to say the headline sums it up, if you want to check out details feel free to click on the link (caution: not for the faint of heart).
It is a despicable act to engage in intercourse with an animal. Anyone think I’m intolerant or hateful when I say this? After all, this comes from that pesky 18th Chapter of the Book of Leviticus. You know the one, the one that refers to homosexuality as an “abomination.” Let’s go to the tape:
“You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” Leviticus 18:22
What is most interesting to me is that the verse dealing with sex with animals follows the verse dealing with homosexuality. Basically it reads like this, ‘Don’t engage in homosexual acts, it is an abomination. ALSO, don’t have sex with animals.’
Why, oh why are these 2 immoral acts grouped together? A better question is why is one recognized as being wrong and immoral whereas the other is increasingly becoming an acceptable expression of ‘sexuality’? Not only that, but why is it OK to say one is sick and twisted but the other act one cannot say anything against unless one wants to be accused of engaging in ‘hate speech’?
(Yes I know that Christians are not under the Mosaic Law, see Paul’s letter to the Romans for a treatise on the subject, which by the way also identifies homosexuality as sinful behaviour)
