It is very clear to most Christians that we are no longer governed by Leviticus. In the Old Testament god was very harsh on his people and it was not until Jesus Christ died for our sins that we were saved. And I realize that many of you believe that is hocus pocus. I am not trying to convert or convince anyone, just explaining the perspective.
My original point was to correct a misconception about the Bible that trivializes it. People who do not care for the Bible and only wish to use it as a weapon against believers make silly comments like God says homosexuality and eating shellfish are bad and are equally so. Come on. I was just trying to defend that aspect of it.
That sums it up perfectly for me, and I did not intend to belittle or show disrespect. I do understand the principle that Christians are no longer governed by the laws of Leviticus and that is explanation enough for me.
