    Which Bible?

    It wasn't edited by the Catholic Church unless you are claiming that choosing which books were divinely inspired and including them is editing.

    First, it's not a commandment. Second, it's listed in Leviticus which basically codified Mosaic law. These were ordinances...and just like eating shellfish is not a sin, neither is laying with a man as with a woman.

    That's a fair working description of editing. The men chose which parts to put in and which parts to leave out, though in this case, it wasn't choices made for clarity or even internal consistency, but on the basis of their personal whims and preferences dressed up as divine intervention.
    Don't work out, work in.

    HAve you ever looked into why they included the ones they did? From your post, you haven't. Btw, the books that were excluded are still revered by the Catholic church, much in the same way other scholarly, but not divinely, written works are. Are you aware of the Apocrypha?

    How does a committee decide what a man wrote, what a man inspired by god wrote, or what a man inspired by shrooms wrote?

    In addition, why should we trust the decisions of a committee of men we have not met and lived in an entirely different time?

    Are you referring to the Bible or the Constitution?

    By studying the words written. Their determinations were based on examining the texts and determining what was divinely inspired and what wasn't. The best modern parallel is the difference between primary and secondary sources. Read about it yourself. I highly doubt you'll take anything I say about it onboard.

    Indeed, why should you?
