Jimmy Mac sent this news bit about one of my fellow Iowans to my attention.
You know, I confess a few guilty pleasures in my life. I like to watch and listen when non-scientists talk about science. Also cool is when the occasional out-of-depth fundamentalist tries to go Biblical. Iowa House candidate Jeremy Walters trots out Leviticus 20:13 but not for a statement about the death penalty. (More on that in a bit.) He wants to connect homosexuals, AIDS, and the notion that the innocent immoral suffer and the guilty go free are presidential contenders in Iowa.
Has Mr Walters drunk deeply of that Leviticus well, I wonder? Good to know he’s not out to put people to death, because I’m curious how he would confront this prominent American politician about his transgression of Leviticus 20:10.
My wife commented that the LDS missionaries were in the neighborhood the other night. I had a really nice conversation with them a few weeks ago. She noticed one guy pointing at our house and his companion shaking his head and gesturing in the other direction.
I know Jeremy Walters isn’t running in my state district, but all the same: I’d love to have him come by some evening. Kick back with a few cold ones and discuss the fine points of Leviticus 20 … and Leviticus 19 … and the rest of Mosaic Law. What would you think his chances would be?
