A Brief Reading from the Hol(e)y Bible for Selective Homophobic Christian Friends

Scott Owens

Select, You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.
Unselect, Nor shall you put on a garment made of two different materials.
Declare it irrelevant

Select, If a man lies with a man as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.
Unselect, You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard.
Proclaim it obsolete

Unselect, The camel, the rock badger, the hare, the pig . . . of their fleshes you shall not eat.
Dismiss as immaterial.

Unselect, Anything in the seas or the streams that does not have fins and scales, they are detestable to you and detestable they shall remain.
Deem apocryphal.

Select, Love each other as I have loved you;
If I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing;
God is love, and those who abide in love, abide in God
Select, but simply ignore.
