  •  I really think I need to sit down (none)
    next summer and read the Bible from cover to cover. Seriously...these are some VERY disturbing stories! And THIS is the book people are supposed to live by?!? Fucking the dead and stoning people to death...not for fucking the dead, but for "spilling the seed"??

    EW!

    •  Just so you understand (4.00)
      at least as much as I think I do, it's not necrophilia.  The rule is, if your brother dies and he has a wife, you are obligated to marry her.  Now I am way over my depth here (like I said my knowledge comes from a lego/bible humor site) so don't take my words as gospel.  I'm just an ex-catholic athiest. :-)

      This is obviously a rule for men.  I think the rules for women are best summed up as "find a man and cleave unto him."  In this context, cleave means shut up and get him a beer when he is thirsty.

      Religious people, please feel free to correct my misconceptions.

      •  whew... (none)
        okay. I think I just misread that. Thanks for the explanation:)
        •  Careful Elise (none)
          People have been butchering each other in Europe for Centuries because some one just happened to misunderstand the "Good Book".
          Shit we really miss a bit of Burning at the Stake here in Europe or a good old stoning on a Saturday. That would give Texas a real Tourist Boost, who the fuck would want to go to see the Alamo when we could see somebody getting torched, great faimly fun.

          I'm usually drunk at this time of Day.

    •  Levirate Marriage (none)
      I think what you guys are talking about is Levirate marriage. Here's the definition in a nutshell:
      "The practice of marrying the widow of one's childless brother to maintain his line, as required by ancient Hebrew law."

      Elise - I recommend that rather than sitting down and reading the bible cover to cover, way better to read the following books:
      "Who Wrote the Bible"; "Who Wrote the New Testament" ;"The Mythmaker: Paul and the Invention of Christianity"; and "Harlot by the Side of the Road."

      George Bush is an unnatural disaster.
