    You dummy.

    If you were as smart as Ted, you'd know about that. But don't feel too bad. I still don't know who this McIntyre is. (Or care, actually.) Have a nice day. Watch out for them zebras. Especially southern ones. Looking to get married.

    PS. What was the topic here again?

    Males zebras do not kill infant their own offspring. The whole idea is that "pass the genes thing." They will chase the male offspring out of the herd when they reach maturity. Remember that in a big herd their may be more than one mature male and sometimes the beta males will get a female pregnanat. The dominate male will try to kill off those males early but will tolerate them if they live pass a few weeks and chase them out on sexual maturity.

    As for the other part of the conversation, I can only say that one bad apple does not taint the whole population. There have always been bad parents and there always will be but I for one don't feel they make up the majority of humans.

    Don't worry about the point of the lyrics, it was kind of a miss anyway.

    And missing is where the point has gone.

    I think I'll follow it.

    This has gotten a little strange, but oh well... I believe the original "old platter" of that song belongs to Vicki Lawrence.

    You know I don't understand how you can rely on this as the focal point of your argument given other things that we clearly ignore now such as:

    touching the skin of a dead pig Leviticus 11:7 (so much for football)
    Handicapped people in church Leviticus 21:20 (does this include those of us who wear glasses?)
    Executing people for working on Sunday Exodus 35:2
    Heated homes on Sunday Exodus 35:3 (Depending on how you define dwelling... heated churches might also be outlawed)

    So I really can't see getting worked up over gay marriage until we start picketing football, stoning those who work on Sunday.. come to think of it, maybe not, I sometimes have to take call on Sundays, and do we really want to bar handicapped persons from church and that heating thing... lighting a fire on the sabbath... how unconscionable!

    Or if we take the view point, like most of us do, that those restrictions are not relevant to us, how can we no do the same thing for same sex marriage and what not?

    This is the same old (and slightly anti-Jewish) argument that if there's something inapplicable or to our way of thinking trivial in the Torah, nothing else in it is true. For any Lutherans out there, it also bespeaks an um eensy confusion in the proper division of law and gospel. It's also a bit odd how, in the argument which is the topic of this thread, some culturally Christian folks--on both sides--focus on Leviticus to the exclusion of texts in the New Testament which are problematic for advocates of the moral acceptability or indifference of homosexual activity.

    (And into that argument I do not propose to enter. It is an old, tired argument, which hardly ever changes anyone's mind--but then, that's not the point, is it?--endlessly repeated in this forum for the delectation of aggressive gays and aggressive fundamentalists, who ought to go off in some quiet corner and whinge at each other, leaving normal homosexuals, normal fundamentalists, and all the rest of us out of it.)

    I'm hardly an accomplished Hebraist by any conceivable measure, but I'm reasonably certain that you can work your ass off on Sunday and that's OK with the book of Leviticus.
