Quote of the Day

I am going to try something new today. I am going to find a quote from the Bible everyday that I find absolutely absurd. Today, our gem is about the sinful practice of eating fish. Here it is.

"Whatever in the water does not have fins or scales; that shall be an abomination to you." (Leviticus 11:12)

I don't know about you, but I suspect that many Christians eat fish. And, I am sure that many fundamentalists eat fish too. If the Bible is to be used as a catalyst to deny civil rights, such as gay marriage, should we not all remind those people that they are sinning in the eyes of God when they eat fish?
