    You call that Christian?
    Romans I was Paul’s letter to the Romans. These were not Jesus’ words. If you care to state that your are not a Christian, but rather of the Paulian faith, I will continue to feel differently, but will concede the validity of your belief.
    Leviticus is of course, in the Old Testament, written before Jesus’ time. You, like almost everyone, are picking-and-choosing what parts of the Old Testament you wish to cite, but I’ll bet you’re not willing to endorse the OTHER laws of the Old Testament. Examples:
    1: Leviticus 11:7-8-Not allowed to eat pork, etc.
    2: Leviticus 10-11: Eating shellfish is abomination
    3: Leviticus 19:16: Gossip is prohibited
    4: Leviticus 19:27: Prohibits haircust/beard-trimming
    5: Leviticus 19:28: Prohibits tattoos
    6: Leviticus 19:31: Prohibits cunsulting psychics
    7: Corinthians 14:34-35: Prohibits women speaking in church
    8: Exodus 31:14-15: Prohibits working on the Sabbath (death penalty)
    9: Exodus 21:17: Prohibits clildren cursing their parents (death penalty)
    To my knowledge, only one person in history ever deserved the title of “Christ”. These are not HIS words! Selective application of Old Testament laws makes you a bigot. Following Jesus makes you a Christian!
