¿Puedo tener una esclava gringa?

agosto 9, 2010

” Los siervos y las siervas que tengas, serán de las naciones que os rodean; de ellos podréis adquirir siervos y siervas.” – Levítico 25:44


Habia que traducir por lo menos esa porción. je
Las cosas que uno encuentra en línea cuando anda buscando otra cosa… En mi caso, andaba buscando la información de la cantidad de soldados que saldrán de Irak en agosto 2010 y que a lo mejor acaban en la frontera con México.
La carta que encontré en el blog de Lydia Cacho y a la que le doy copy-paste, es una fina muestra de humor negro en relación a la legalización del matrimonio entre homosexuales y lesbianas, tema muy de moda ahora.

Dr Laura Schlesinger said that “according to the Bible, homosexuality is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22) and cannot be condoned under any circumstances.”
The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a US resident, and posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned some things from your show and try to share the knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination … end of debate!

I do need some advice from you however regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to understand and apply them correctly.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10). it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’agree. Can you settle this? Are there degrees of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20 or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev.24:10-16) Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I’m confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

Your dedicated fan,

P.S. It would be a damn shame if we couldn’t own a Canadian!

Para tranquilidad de los católicos fundamentalistas – a quienes suplico no envíen más tambos de agua bendita – les clarifico que yo sí se que el Antigio Testamento caducó y esta vigente el Nuevo Testamento. Relax. Algo de sentido del humor para estos tiempos de guerra, por favor!
