The Doctor Laura Show
In case you haven't heard, Dr. Laura is a fundamentalist (Orthodox Jew inthis case) who has a very popular radio show that is about to become atelevision show. She is a cross between Rush Limbaugh and Judge Judy -conservative and insulting. She is quite vocal that homosexuality is a very bad and dangerous thing. Thus, the following letter:
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have learned a great deal from you, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.
For example, when someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. Who would've thought it was that easy?
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other specific laws and how to best follow them.
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 with my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them and have threatened to call the police. How should I deal with this?
In addition, I think that I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as allowed in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
It says in the Bible that I am not allowed contact with a woman while she is in her period of "menstrual uncleanliness" (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how can I tell? I have tried asking, but--strangely--most women take offense.
While we're on Leviticus, it says in 25:44 that I am allowed to buy slaves from the nations that are around us. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans but not Canadians. But I am unsure. Would you please clarify?
Sadly, I have a neighbor whose boss insists that he work on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself? And what about his supervisor who makes the schedule? I have never seen this issue addressed.
A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination Lev. 10:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?
Oh, and lastly, Lev. 20:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I must admit that I wear prescription glasses. Does my vision really have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here? I think my minister wears contact lenses, what about him?
I know by what you say on your radio show that you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
