Whether you "agree" with Leviticus or not -- certainly 20:13 is wrong -- there's more wisdom in any given letter of the Torah than there is in all the Human Rights codes of the world. It will be studied long after Canada, human rights, and tribunals are all forgotten.
On October 27, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal issued a precedent-setting cease and desist order which forbids Jessica Beaumont from posting certain Bible verses on the Internet. If this 21-year old woman posts the wrong Bible quotation online - even if it is on an American website - she could face up to 5 years in prison.So, because I am an atheist, or something, I can reproduce the following verses without having to pay off a human rights profiteer like Richard Warman -- or live them in prison -- but Beaumont cannot.
I don't like them (as painful as the Human Rights Commission makes it to say that), but by its ruling the Human Rights Tribunal compels freedom-loving Canadians to spread these non-freedom-loving verses far and wide.
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.Now, hold on to your hats, because I'm going to insist you don't obey 20:13, okay? That would be against real laws, as opposed to human rights legislation.
