The GOP has spent a lot of time fighting gay marriage. Given the numerous abominations in the bible it is puzzling why they chose to focus on homosexuality. Perhaps, it is just the first on the list to be addressed. Let’s take a look at a few more abominations:
- Lobsters, shrimp, clams, octopus, and squids
Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:12
- Four-legged fowls--I guess I won't be having that tonight.
All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:20
- Four-footed flying, creeping things
But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:23
- Whatever crawls on its belly, goes on all four, or has lots of legs (So much for those delicacies at those rattlesnake roundups)
Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth ... are an abomination. Leviticus 11:42
- Sacrificing your less than perfect sheep or goat
Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 17:1
- Women who wear men's clothing (oh, oh...)
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5
- The hire of a whore or the price of a dog (Pimps and dog theives beware)
Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 23:18
- Taking back an ex-wife after you let her go and she's been intimate with another man.
When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD. Deuteronomy 24:1-4
- The work of a craftsman who makes those little Buddah dolls
Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman.... Deuteronomy 27:15
- Those things we value the most—???
That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. Luke 16:15
If Mitt Romney is elected, he, the Tea Party and the rest of the bunch will have more four years to get to the rest of the list. I don’t know how those—even Democrats and Independents—who jumped the Obama ship due to the support of gay marriage will handle it when they get to the pepperoni and sausage pizza.
