What's the deal with...?

Ever have those nagging little FYM-related questions that never seem to find the answers, or wouldn't be appropriate as a thread on their own?

Well, here's a thread for all those questions that you just have been dying to ask but never find answers for.

A question can be related to anything at all (as long as it's FYM-appropriate)

Perhaps on certain questions, debate will arise, and perhaps it will be a yes or no answer. Let your ambitions run wild.

Give'r!

Why do hurricanes always have to hit where people need it least?

I've got a legitimate one.

What's the deal with many conservative Christian groups picking and choosing from Mosaic Law, and I mean this with particular emphasis to the question of same-sex marriage.

Why are people so adamant about following one verse in Leviticus 11 that says it's an abomination for men to sleep together, but yet toss out verses that state that it's an abomination to get a tattoo, or that if a woman cheats on her husband that she should be taken outside of town and stoned to death, no questions asked.

And I don't want the standard Sunday School "but Jesus came and changed it" answer that seemingly gets thrown out every time someone challenges the idea of Mosaic Law. Either Jesus tossed the whole thing out (thereby rendering the "homosexuality = abomination" clause null and void as well) or he didn't change it at all, which would mean that we all risk incurring God's wrath each time one of us neglects to sacrifice the proper amount of doves in the Tabernacle.

You can't pick and choose, keeping the laws that gross you out while at the same time declaring those laws that seem inconvenient to be null and void.

Discuss.

I feel like doing some research on that one

But one thing I will say is that the rituals, the sacrificial rituals and the like were thrown out the window because the "ultimate sacrifice" was made through Christ.
The ritual cleansing was given to them by God mainly to teach them good hygeine and keep them from making themselves sick because of lack of knowledge.
Wash yourself! Yes, do otherwise you'll stink
and the risk of icky meat was high back then due to no refrigeration and crappola
The same 'sins' in the bible are still sins even after the sacrifice was made, but they are covered for those who choose to accept god's mercy through his son (Im not pushing this at people, just talking about doctrine)
I think thats as far as I really want to go into it for now because Im tired and I want to go eat my jicama
