    Deuteronomy 22:13-21
    1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord. 2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.

    Deuteronomy 23:1
    If a man commits adultery with another man's wife--with the wife of his neighbor--both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.

    Mark 7:25-27
    10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the Lord thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, 11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; 12 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house; and she shall shave her head, and pare [2] her nails; 13 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house...
    You got a point? We've been waiting for one from you the entire thread.

I see the Robertson issue the same way. He had every right to bash whomever he wished, and his employer had every right to issue consequences for him doing so.

    You seem to think receiving consequences for one's actions is wrong; I do not.
    But you seem to think that the outrage over one in the absence of another is a wrong....at leas that's what I gathered from your post. No-one defends all injustice equally....not even governments. There just isn't time.

    And it makes sense to you that the hosts of a reality show aren't that much interested in airing the reality of the show?

    I grew up in Jacksonville and spent most summers in Macon County. How would you describe race relations in Macon County during the 70's?

    What is absurd is your reply.
    You have already been given the information explaining that the two are not even on the same playing field.
    Yet here you are again trying to equate them as being similar proscriptions when they are not.
    The only reason they are not in the same playing field is because you choose to not put eating shellfish and gay sex in the same ballpark. The Bible makes no such distinction. But feel free to prove your point.

    Romans 14:1-23

    "As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind."
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Yeah. The Bible says a bunch of crazy crap. Why do you and the other Christians ignore most of the stuff in the Old Testament but zero in on gay sex? I find that to be a wee bit too selective.

    Either live the bible or don't. But if you live it, be prepared to murder misbehaving children and wives--not to mention treat your slaves kindly. Until then, most of you all are hypocrites, which is exactly how Jesus described the public Bible thumpers.

    Maybe this will help with your bible study:
