"Gay marriage" and recreational pot now OK in WA. Funny?

A small sidebar to the re-election of the Prez was Washington state's approval of homosexual marriage and the "recreational" use of marijuana. The new laws went into effect this week. Things that were formerly unnatural and/or illegal are now permissible -- according to the law -- in the far northwest of the Excited States of America.

Agent 9 says it all makes sense now, if you remember your Bible. Specifically, Leviticus 20:13: "If a man lays with another man he should be stoned." We've just been interpreting it incorrectly all these years! We should have understood it more literally!

Haha! Very funny, Dr. Jones! But the joke depends on which version of Holy Writ you read. Agent 9 must have got hold of some modern translation, edited by someone with a sense of humour [and a problem with proper English usage. Ed.] The older and better Douay-Rheims version says "If anyone lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination, let them be put to death."

The King James version uses almost identical language. Sorry, queer folks, but God doesn't see any reason to celebrate.
