What do you think..

About people still clinging to the "old" laws of the Bible so vehemently as to restrict from sexual intercourse after childbirth based on the gender of the baby being born, refusing to wear clothes made of more than one type of fabric fiber, being against homosexuality, and not allowing a woman to go to the church during her period?

  • Dull. That is just it, by imposing some of these OT laws on women, they are being harmed. They infringe upon their human rights, and make them subservient beings.

    What do I think? I think that in a perfect world, there would be no use for organized religion. And that it causes more harm than good- religious abuse is common to almost every flavor of beliefs, and generally pertains to women, and young children. It is doctrine that I disagree with, and wish could be abolished.

  • Their religion, their choice, as long as it's not hurting anyone and they are not forcing these rules on everyone else.

  • Well, I don't believe in living my life that way. I don't believe in a lot of what the Bible says. That's why I'm not a Christian. However, I'm fine if someone else wants to live like that. I have respect for them if they actually follow their religion so devoutly. It wouldn't be easy. The Amish are another example (especially Old Order). Very extreme and set in their ways, and while I may find their religion and way of life something that I could never follow, that doesn't mean I don't greatly respect them for following so strongly what they believe to be right and true. As long as they are able to make a choice, and are not forced, I say let them follow their religion however they'd like.

  • As long as they are following the correct translation (unless of course they are reading the Hebrew) and follow all the laws, I have no issue with it.
