Guess What Else Is an Abomination in the Bible...
Bible-thumpers who quote Leviticus to condemn any man who "lies with a man as one lies with a woman" should know that the Old Testament book also condemns a lot of boring things as well.
The site Banned by the Bible lists the 75 other no-nos listed in Leviticus. Turns out that The Good Book also forbids all of the following:
That basically means that a lot of meat-eaters, hipsters, church-going mothers, horny straight guys, barbers, real estate agents and anyone sitting down at an old-folks' home are all abominations in the eyes of God. Oh and most of the Republican party (surprise, surprise).
So the next time you start feeling all gay and abominable, just remember that the ancient Hebrew God considered shrimp cocktail and ham sandwiches abominations as well. Makes us hella glad we don't live in a BC-era desert caravan filled with escaped Jewish slaves... though we hear Kansas is a close second.
