Very well reasoned and written. Thank you for the info. Reading the thread i noticed a big difference between blood policy, in general, and an actual young girl dying b/c of it.
I don't know why certain religions focus on minute scriptures that are contrary to the outlook of the rest of the scirptures. Homsoexuality is one such topic. We are told that God created life. Jesus told us to live fully. When the consequence of a particular interpretation are so dire, why not go with the one that the enitre Bible supports.
Does any other group rejected blood on these scriptural grounds? I am curious.
