Love the signs and the protestor at Red Lobster! :) The prohibitions in Leviticus aren't absurd, but they have to be understood in context. The word "abomination" in Hebrew is "to-evah" and it is used to describe practices that were associated with idol worship. That was a big issue in the early history of the Israelites, who were constantly back-sliding. The commandments relating to idol worship were intended to separate the Israelites from the neighboring pagan peoples and to stop imitating their practices and ceremonies. Viewed in that light, the Levitical passages make much more sense. You can read more about this in Jay Michaelson's excellent new book, "God vs. Gay." -- Rob Montague
