LOL All kinds of responses to this...<quoted text> I had a good laugh when I read this post.
I think it may be akin to some of the archaic laws in the US states.'Have you had sex with a mule?' for some reason reminded me of one of those laws. In one state ( I can't remember which one at the moment) it is illegal to have sex in a shopping cart.
So, if there is a law against it, at least one person/couple must have done it at one time or another. I think that's where the concern comes from. A couple must have tried sex in a shopping cart and someone saw them and all aghast, must have made an impression on the state/county/city to make it against the law. Same thing with having sex with a mule. I can't for the life of me understand how having sex with a mule would hurt the mule, but God was certainly concerned about it enough to make it one of the ten commandments. Funny he thought it so important to have it written in stone and didn't write a single thing about homosexuality. Funny also that he thought it was worse than the rape of another human being or the enslavement of other humans.
Darn...I didn't know anyone was looking...or...
Is that sex in a shopping cart going down a steep hill...or...
Well...better not post the other responses.
I remember reading in one state (maybe Georgia) that it is illegal to tie your giraffe to a light post. In another it is illegal to give your horse a bath in your bathtub. There definitely should have been commandments about that!
Whether one adheres to 613 or just 10 commandments it is as if one was set up to fail. Most have no problem following most of the 10. One can not always control the thought sins. Yet it is just as sinful to think of lust as it is to act upon it.
If a God created us he created us sexual human beings...then punishes for acting upon those feelings unless you follow some set of rules.
