Leviticus and Its Antiquated Moral Laws

For example,

“Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it.”
Leviticus 18:23

This is yet another example of those “Middle-Eastern camel-herders” imposing their narrow-minded views on the rest of the human race.

What was it with these meddling people and their obsession with our genitals? Live and let live right? Who are they to tell us anything? I mean Jesus never spoke out against this did He? No, I didn’t think so!

While this line of reasoning might be hoisted up as an adequate and apt response to Leviticus 18:22, I hardly doubt the same reasoning will be applied to the case of a gentleman by the name of Rodell Vereen.

According to this story, Mr. Vereen is accused of the thing which Leviticus 18:23 forbids and if convicted, faces up to 5 years in the clink.

Philip, I mean, Rodell was caught inside the stable by the stable’s owner, Barbara Kenley (below) Stablewho by all accounts, agrees wholeheartedly with Leviticus 18:23.

As do all her horse-owning neighbors who informed her that she “should have shot [Vereen]”.

Leaves one to wonder who Kenley and her neighbors think they are. Conjuring up outdated moral codes to impose restraints on first Mr. Vereen, and if we’re not careful, the rest of society. Watch out College Station, they’re coming for you next.

It should surprise no one that this circle of close-minded horse owners all live in South Carolina.

As if you couldn’t tell by the gun…

U.S. Navy Projects Power, Mexican Navy hunts sharks

Akula (“shark”) is the NATO code name for a class of Russian submarines (Ivan, of course, calls them something else).

It was the task (among many others) of the U.S. Navy during the Cold War to track these and other Soviet vessels.

The end of the Cold War, I’m sure, did not end such patrols. So while the U.S. Navy projects power around the world and keeps track of the vessels of other nations, the naval forces of my native México are doing what?

Not hunting/tracking Akula-class subs but hunting the real deal: sharks.

That’s right, actual sharks, as in cartilaginous, carnivorous creatures not nuclear-powered Russians subs. Here’s the story,
Mexico Navy hunts for sharks after attacks

One chomps at the bit to know just what La Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional (The Mexican Defense Department) has in store for fugitive circus lions or el chupacabras.

Oh, what my country is reduced to because we don’t live in an Absolut World

Cruelty to Animals: Cat Wigs

I have always liked cats (it doesn’t mean I think they’re people though), maybe it’s their independence and the fact that unlike dogs, they don’t grovel and bend over backwards to seek the attention of their owners.

Maybe it’s the lithe agility that a “common” house cat has in gobs.

Then one runs across sites like these,
Kitty Wigs!, which seem to rob the cat of his dignity. A sample,

Isn’t it great how the company assures owners that 20% of the proceeds from the wigs go to ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals) when the wigs are cruelty incarnate?

Maybe their donation is akin to carbon credits…

I recant, Obama SHOULD be our Next President

Here is my reasoning,
“Obama hooks ‘em in visit with Longhorns”

What? I have a degree from there, what other choice do I have after seeing those shots?

My reason isn’t any worse than the reasons that have been given so far, right?
