Bible Questions

I found this post on a guy who is asking a few good questions about stuff in the Bible.

That is simply hilarious. Really- one of the funniest things I have read in a long time. I despise Dr. Laura and her ilk.

By the way... wasn't there some form of prohibition against usury in the bible? Any help, someone...?

I actually looked a few of those passages up and I think the entire thing is accurate.

This is Old Testament stuff and I think Jesus had to come down and make some corrections. With regard to the Usery stuff.I think that is a new testament thing.

I think that one is very important in that it relates so closely to the history of the Jews. They were often invited into places to act as bankers, since Christians had this tabu. Then when the King ended up too deep in debt to the jews- It would be time for a pogrom.

There certainly should have been SOME prohibition stating that Jews were not allowed to exploit terrible Goyim tastes by putting together moronic boy bands like the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block. Put that in your G'damn Leviticus.
