    the guy or woman would

    definitely have some mental issues if they had sex with a beast in the present

    of two witnesses

    If you're gonna have sex with animals, you may as well push the boat out ...

    LoveUni: Like this guy in Syracuse "Man charged with filming sex with

    cows wanted again by police". Should the man be put to death?

    No , the guy have some problems. Keller said, "the guy had a fascination with

    farms and manure apparently".

    The point I was trying to make, God's laws vs man's laws. I'm sure when these

    laws were made there were folks that were a few cents short of a dollar. God's

    law, put them to death, man's law they guy needs help.

    @James Mixon - don't worry about my last post, it was just another attempt at humour.

    Should the man be put to death? - No. He should be given a long prison sentence and be banned from going anywhere near children or animals.

    LoveUn: It's hard not to make fun of this subject and discuss it with a straight face, I

    man's law they guy needs help - he still needs to be punished. Bestiality is obviously illegal.

    Generally, I get what you're saying and agree with you. Killing people is an inhumane punishment and therefore unacceptable; incarcerating people is a humane punishment - therefore acceptable.

    The OT is a violent, horrible tome about a violent, horrible time. It doesn't deserve anything more than passing attention, IMO.

    The Talmud interpreted the Genesis story as Adam having had intercourse with all the animals, finding no pleasure in it, until Yahweh made a proper 'helper' for him. Genesis. Rabbah 17.4; Babylonian Talmud Yebamot 63a. My point is that the Jewish Rabbinic mind on the matter wasn't that there was something intrinsically perverted about the practice but that it countered the perceived evident structure of the world. The same word sheqets (taboo) is used to describe eating animals that look like a fish but lacks scales or looks like a cud chewer but isn't. Or for a man to were a woman's clothes etc.
