Leviticus 11:20-22
All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be regarded as unclean by you. There are, however, some flying insects that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for hopping on the ground. Of these you may eat any kind of locust, katydid, cricket or grasshopper.

Discuss.

    The locust family includes Republicans but — bleccchh — I can’t see myself eating a Republican.

    MikeBoyScout spews:

    Obviously the pro-joint bias in association with winged insects is an allusion to getting high, no?

  3. 3

    spews:

    Please Note:

    It is entirely Kosher to eat Grasshoppers, PROVIDED, they are not fired in lard or served together with milk.

    Just want to clarify for the Goyem.

    I am that I am.

    How idiotic is it that people take meaning from every single word of a book written by people who didn’t even know insects have six legs?

    @5 Michael

    As a goy, you can eat them fired in lard or baked in dung.

    I only dictate diets to My chosen people.

    I am that I am.

    So, boobelah, do you also think it is idiotic for Buddhists to read the words of Sif\ddartha?

    What I find weird is that I authorize this book for the Jews living in the Judean Hills. The along come the Romans and they decide the book is oh so cool so THEY make it a THEIR book!

    I do what can be done, don’t blame me.

    I am that I am.

  7. 8

    Puddybud, identifying northwest liberals who elected an underexperienced man to the presidency weighed down by an oversized ego spews:

    It’s better from King James

    20All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.

    21Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

    22Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

    As you can see Pete, much clearer translation than the one “presented”.

    To the black man that said “Fucking Faggot”, take a look at yourself in a mirror, you are a black man.

    Gman spews:

    To the individual or individuals that slashed the tires of the Floats for the Chicago Pride Parade, I would expect nothing less from Heterosexuals that are entrenched in violence – you murderers, rapists and thieves.

    From the same people that don’t know that Grasshoppers and Locusts are the same creature.

    Chosen People, my ass.
    That’s the precise problem with religion – WAAAAY too many religious people of all stripes think they’re “god’s” favorite, which leads them to the conclusion that they can treat other humans like shit, or worse.

    As Pete says, why should we be listening to a book authored by a bunch of dead yahoos who couldn’t aprehend that insects all have six legs, and every insect has jointed legs.

    Insects (from Latin insectum, a calque of Greek ἔντομον [éntomon], “cut into sections”) are a class of living creatures within the arthropods that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax, and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes, and two antennae.

    yes, Breitbart has hacked your IP, just like he hacked Weenie’s Twitter account. Throw your computer away before it blows up.

    You seem to have an awful lot of arrogance. Why would you think that My choosing a people is good for them?

    What a twisted idea you must have. Do you think I did not choose the West Africans to be slaves?

    If you really think there is an honor in being of My chosen, you can make the same choice Ruth, Akiba, and Sammy Davis Junior made.

    Somehow, I suspect it is not worth your while!

    I am that I am.

    I have an awful lot of arrogance? That’s rich.
    I never claimed to be “God’s chosen”

    Your deity sock-puppetry grows tiresome.

    Since you addressed me, I can take up the cudgel.

    Yeh, your post was pretty damn arrogant and antisemitic at that.

    The Jewish claim to be “chosen” ought to be none of your concern, esp. since the claim is NOT to be chosen for special obligation is rather than privilege. The awards for undertaking that onus seem rather meagre, donja think?

    BTW, I find your “Liberal Scientist” persona wearing too. But, I am certain God understands your limitations.

    ANTI-SEMITE!!
    ANTI-SEMITE!!

    There should be a corollary to Godwin’s Law…

    Any people who consider themselves “chosen” by “god” are suspect and dangerous, in my opinion. That Jews have branded the phrase Chosen People(tm) is a subtle and likely inconsequential distinction.

    Seems to me, claims of special relationships with deities based on religious/ethnic distinctions is a recipe for disaster, for all of us.

    Do you similarly respect and defend Michelle Bachmann’s claim to be told by ‘god’ to run? or Pat Robertson’s direct line to the almighty? How about the chief Wahhabist imam’s or the Pope’s walkie-talkie to heaven?

    I might add, given that you are attacking me as an anti-Semite for criticizing one particular (yours) ludicrous claim of relationship with Sky-Daddy, that right here, right now, present day Seattle, the most egregious examples of petty racism (person-to-person, as opposed to institutional) I have personally witnessed have been self-identified Jews (plural) discussing the sub-humanity of Palestinians, as a group. Are they anti-Semites? How about anti-human? Or simply racist?

    +++++++++

    God understands your limitations.

    And you can be a condescending ass, as well.
