Gay marriage; Shellfish next abomination to be legalised

After the successful legalisation of gay marriage, which hasn’t resulted in any smiting, earthquakes or unusual cosmological signs, the Government is considering legalising the consumption of shellfish.
‘Leviticus is pretty clear on shellfish – they’re an abomination’, admitted David Cameron yesterday. ‘But Leviticus says precisely the same about a man um…lying with a man… as it were. While we respect that that people hold strong views about what is sanctioned in the Old Testament, we think the time may be right to allow people to eat ‘whatever is in the seas and rivers that does not have fins and scales.’
‘I’d like to take this even further, and legalise the planting of two different crops in one field. Let’s face it, if bumming isn’t going to cause divine retribution, a little creative agriculture should be okay’.

God made shellish a clean food 2000 years ago, when christ ended the old covenant...along with all other OT legislation. Christian condemnation of homosexuality is based on the NT.

As TMS said. Besides, trying to ban shellfish would definitely not work for sure.

I don't care about what this god thinks considering how he is not timeless, shellfish can be ethically eaten, and homosexuality is not unethical by nature.

The article was satire, no need to take it seriously. :cool:

Regardless, how the best churches rationalise it does not matter. The bigoted members of the public do tend to quote that verse in the Old Testament.

That's a bit too strong, what he actually said was a vague "some of it is useful, some of it is a load of *******s, use your common sense".

I thought the only condemnation of homosexuality in the NT is in one of the Pauline epistles and can also be interpreted as a reference to ritual orgies in some cult that was popular at the time.

Incorrect, there are over thirty clear verses setting aside the ot rules.

Afraid not.

For the record im a big homo fan, enjoy the D myself, however an argument simply cannot be made that christianity is gay friendly, no matter what weak convoluted arguments modern liberal Christians make.

You also like the big D, ie Richard Dawkins? :eek: He has so many followers...

Oh I don't have that misconception. It's very clear, and therefore I do find gay christians pretty pathetic.

I'm just saying I was under the impression that all the homophobic mentions followed the Old Testament (ie either from them, or a result of the mentions from it).

you misunderstand. Unless you're a temple priest, you shouldn't follow what they say in leviticus.

that aside the article is rather funny. from the title i thought it was like 'if u allow gay marriage you're gonna let people marry shellfish'

Oh no I understand what you meant. I'm just saying regardless, whatever rule christianity has on anything, they should only impact christians, not everybody else in a society. Assuming it's a society with freedom of religion that is.
