Ridiculous Commandments

The bible contains thousands of commandments, mostly ridiculous. The commandment that attracts by far the most attention is Leviticus 18:22, the commandment to harass gays. Christians love this commandment above all others because they experience no temptation personally to violate it and because it gives them permission to be as venal as they please to a scapegoat, all the while feeling profoundly virtuous.
