Great entry, Dmitri. I don't know quite how you steered a non-confrontational path through this one, but it's a triumph.

Except that one man's Can of Worms is another's Inalienable Truth smiley - winkeye

An Epic!

Last Summer I read Genesis through Leviticus. At other times I've read Job, Ruth, and selected Psalms, as well as scriptures that have been fitted to music. And some of the Gospels in Sunday School way back when.

We're looking at the mores of earlier times, when, for instance, people like Jacob had four wives, or Saint Paul insisted that women be quiet in church. (This last aspect seems to have led to all-male choirs.) Gay rights have often been impeded based on scriptural interpretations. But wcriptures can be interpreted in other ways.
