If you can’t beat them, join them.

After Amendment One passed in North Carolina, I have had a change of heart about this Old Testament legislation thing.

Based on Old Testament values, I think we should get rid of eating burned, carcinogenic animal corpse.

Selected passages:
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and care for it. And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden’ – Genesis 2:15-16

“The Lord said to Moses “Say to the Israelites: ‘Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats. The fat of an animal found dead or torn by wild animals may be used for any other purpose, but you must not eat it. Anyone who eats the fat of an animal from which an offering by fire may be made to the Lord must be cut off from his people. And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood of any bird or animal. If anyone eats blood, that person must be cut off from his people.” Leviticus 7:22-27

“But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales – whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water – you are to detest. And since you are to detest them, you must not eat their meat and you must detest their carcasses” Leviticus 11:10-11

“Every creature that moves about on the ground is detestable; it is not to be eaten. You are not to eat any creature that moves about on the ground, whether it moves on its belly or walks on all fours or on many feet; it is detestable” Leviticus 11:41-42

Based on New Testament values, “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
