Thanks Jeff but I'm afraid I'm still unconvinced. I have given some examples of fairly explicit statements from your bible and you have given plenty of reasons why they don't apply to our society or to you personally. I can't even recall my school Chaplain fretting about scampi and chips on the menu. However, if we look at Leviticus 18 & 20 on the topic of homosexuality I think we'll find plenty of christians who rather adore this bit of the bible and take it rather literally. I note (in the King James) that it is described as an abomination as is shellfish and those who engage should be put to death as should adulterous couples. It strikes me that as these passages play nicely to a predetermined prejudice they held to apply in a way that views on mixed fibres are not. Your Jesus character was rather silent on the issue I believe?
