She has firmly supported and advocated biblical morality on her TV and radio shows. The following is a tongue-in-cheek letter seeking Dr. Laura's advice on applying biblical morality and religious duties in today's world. Its author is unknown.
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 I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When people try to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific laws and how to follow them:
a) 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?
b) 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?
c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness (Lev.15:19-24).The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
d) 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?
e) 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?
f) 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?
g) 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?
h) 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?
i) 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?
j) 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)
A zillion apologies if it goes belly-up. Just a bit of light hearted reading. Not trying to be academic or anything.
Found this on another forum.....just wanted to share it
Hope my technical skills on my tablet works. Here goes......Dr. Laura Slessinger is a well-known conservative talk show host. She has expressed very negative beliefs about homosexuality.
Je suis .......hey this good! Thanks for posting it, its a good come back for a whole bunch of religious craziness!
Great points. The contradictions in the Bible are unbelievable! We follow some but cherry pick others.
This is brilliant!!!
Thanks guys. Was beginning to think I was as insignificant on this forum as I was to the jdubs.
Ha Ha - love it.
Je Suis, you don't need to prove yourself here.
Lose the JW guilt and 'cantdoenough'ness, and just enjoy being yourself.
You don't have to do a quota of posts per month!
😁👍Love it! With share with next fundies I meet!
Splash - you're so right. I needed someone to point this out!! Aaarrrggghhh I need a new brain.
This is great! It's been posted before but I'll copy this time.
Dr. Laura -- I appreciate her advice re/toxic, evil parents/family members and her efforts to protect children and the innocent but was not aware of her view toward homosexuality.
