Great service Johnny, thanks!
LOL I can't wait to bring up the bible's ban on shellfish to my friends and co-workers. Here in south Louisiana, shrimp, crawfish, and oysters are literally a main food group. Since I'm an atheist, I can eat all I want and Christians will have to give it up. I grin with anticipation in hearing their excuses! :)

Tip of the hat, Johnny!

Christians are exempt from The Law, which covers all 11 of the bans in the article. Paul wanted a more successful Jesus franchise, so he got the home office to sign off on an exemption from Jewish Law for gentiles who converted to what he called "The Way" (which by the way is translated as "Al Qaida" in Arabic). The bigger theological issue is why Christians enjoy their right to eat shellfish and so on, but still want to impose The Law on those they don't like, such as homosexuals.

I read "Americans are fleeing religion as atheism surges." We're here, we're queer... um... wait..
I hear mixed things about the growing number of atheists. On the other hand, I've heard that our numbers have been stable, which I find hard to believe. On the third hand, I certainly hear a lot about mega-churches springing up, the enormous popularity of the Left Behind books, etc. I doubt there is any truly accurate way to get a measure, but for real: what are the trends? Obviously, I hope that atheism is growing!
Oh, and I'm Jewish and was raised not to eat pork or shellfish. FYI, observant Jews don't wear mixed fabrics, neither!
