Why Can't I Own A Canadian?

Recommended Posts

How would you answer these questions?

 

 

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?

 

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?

 

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.

 

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed 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?

 

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

 

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't agree. Can you settle this?

 

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?

 

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?

 

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?

 

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)

Salaam,

 

Oh, this is the response to the 'hate gay people because Leviticus tells you too' argument isn't it? I'd forgotten I'd read it before, still funny :sl:

 

I'm (obviously) not Jewish, but I believe that Jews believe the Laws only apply to them (as a race). Judaism is distinct from Christianity and Islam in that it doesn't claim to be a religion for the world, just one set of people. As USA isn't the Jewish state, and as, I assume, Salaami isn't Jewish, the Law doesn't apply to you.

 

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

 

*now has odd images of Walmart selling Canadians between baked beans and beef burgers*. Apologies to all Canadians

 

Peace and Love,

 

DARLA

No, Islam says that this religion is for all, and not for arabs only, also we know that Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) send out letters to spread the word of God, accross the world, and no other prophet did that.Moreover, there companions from other countries also. All prophets were sent to a particular place for a plarticular period of time, except for Muhammed (PBUH) who was a universal messenger. This is the teachings accordig to Islam, and Islam is there since man set foot on earth, and is not a new religion, but it is the religion which was sent down before Muhammed (PBUH). All prophets came with the same messege. Worship God, and to Him alone. - La ilaa ha ill lall lah-

 

May be this is off topic, but just refuting to a quote which is not really ture

Perhaps you misread her post, she was actually referring to Judaism, unlike Christianity and Islam...

Peace be upon those who follow guidance

 

Bro Salams, those laws might've been given to Moses(pbuh), so there is no need to post articles that try to make fun of them. In fact one of the laws, the one about sex being unlawful with a woman on her period is found in Islam too.

Salaam,

 

Yusufar, yes, that was my intention.

 

Vishah, thank you for taking the time to try and indicate what you thought was wrong.

Salaam Younes, yes you may be right that Allah(swt) might have given Moses those laws, but I really doubt that Allah(swt) the Almighty , the Merciful, would want people killed for wearing clothes containing 2 different fabrics...... or for shaving their sideburns.... you're right about the women menstruation tho.

 

 

but I believe that Jews believe the Laws only apply to them

 

So do they believe these laws are applicable??

actually, many muslim scholars regard guatama buddha to be a previous Prophet, and his writings were also universal.

 

a further correction. :sl:

The Prophet(pbuh) told us not to accept nor reject anything from the Bible because it might be the Word of God. You can't mock something that the Prophet(pbuh) forbade to be mocked. Please, don't make any assumptions about God, that's the way all false religions start. Take this example, the Chrisitians might've thought that since Jesus(pbuh) was taken to Heaven it means that he will sit on God's right side as an additional ruler. Work only from evidence, don't just base your opinions on mere conjecture.

 

The Torah Law is more strict than the Qur'anic one, so it might be true that wearing two pieces of clothing containing two different fabrics might be punishable. But then again, I'm not sure, that's why I don't critize it nor accept it.

 

 

 

So do they believe these laws are applicable??

 

Atleast the Orthodox Jews do think that the Torah must be applied, as for the specific laws mentioned in the article, I don't know about that.

No Jews on the site to give a go at answering this?

I must say I agree. It seems more like mocking than objective critisism.

that is the definition of fundamentalists.

 

 

--- the ones who beleive *they* are the only ones saved, and all others doomed. If you wish to mock (and its hard not to sometimes :sl:), to help you remember respect towards them, bear in mind that athiests would put even 'moderate' religious observations, such as praying regularly, in the same category of ridiculousness that you are doing to the fundamentalists.

 

if you are like me, you will find the humour throughout all of it (IE existence), and it seems to me that someone who can laugh at their own beleifs is not causing offence to their soul by finding others amusing as well. Unless they deliberately set out to cause offense to those others.

 

salaams,

I dont really want to cause offense, but it seems like everyone is picking on Islamic rules and taking some of them out of context and making it look like Islam is a horrible and unjust religion, yet nobody says anything about jewish people or their faith which teaches things like killing people for shaving their sideburns, wearing clothes made up of 2 different fabrics, etc.

 

However , the previous bro's are right. I should not criticise biblical teachings, because some of them might be true. May Allah(swt) forgive me.

unless of course the entry requirement for Heaven is a good sense of humour, and these 'laws' were designed to seperate those who have one (and therefore mock the laws), and those who do not, and therefore follow them, beleiving in a God that would throw them into Hell for wearing two different fabrics.

 

personally, i think that having a mind that has been so abused that you could even begin to beleive that the Supreme Being could be so incredibly petty (such laws sound more like the whims of some Chief Preist if you ask me), is somewhat indicative of someone already living in Hell.

 

but then, i could be in for a nasty shock eh? :sl:

 

 

(i'd still rather spend my living years with the beleif in a moral, just and SANE universe though, even with the risk of eternal Hell-Fire)

 

 

Peace and Love. :sl:
