"Pilgrims" crawl on bloody knees, sometime for miles... sometimes over shards of glass/pottery... to revere the Virgin Mary. And for centuries (if not millenia), zealots have been known to mutilate their bodies, including whipping themselves to a bloody pulp, in demonstration of pennance and other demonstrations of... ummmm... piety.
Yet, a man sleeps his left side for 390 days (then for 40 on my right), while facing a model of a city under siege that he built out of a clay tile and some sticks, rocks and an iron pan...
And so what, he cooks his barley cakes over a fire of human dung: people have done a LOT worse, dear Terry (peace to you!). Some have eaten... and currently eat... food that contains dung (albeit animal dung - I hope). Down to this day. You tell me which is worse: cooking something OVER dung... or eating something containing dung?
Methinks you're reading WAY too much into what Ezekiel did, dear one, given the times the events took place... and trying to "excite" others to join you. Why?
Again, peace to you!
