As Heard On Friday, January, 31, 2003:
Letter to Dr. Laura from a Bob and Sheri listener!

Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have 
learned a great deal from your show, and 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.

However, I do need some advice from you regarding some of the other 
specific laws and how to follow them.

1. 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 my neighbors. They 
claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 
21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her 
period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19-24. The problem is, how do I 
tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and 
female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of 
mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you 
clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 
clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill 
him myself?

6.  A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an 
abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I 
don't agree. Can you settle this?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a 
defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my 
vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair 
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.19:27. 
How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me 
unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different 
crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two 
different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse 
and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble 
of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev.24:10-16)? Couldn't 
we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with 
people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can 

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fans,
Bob and Sheri **************
