  • It is hilarious !One, it goes to show how the common person embraces beliefs as opposed to the loft philosophical types.Two, it helps educate us on key Biblical ideas like where Leviticus says we should kill these folks: 20: 9 (parent curser),13(homo), 10(adulterous), 27(fortune tellers). And these folks can’t be priests: 21:20 (hunchbacks or dwarfs)

  • Beliefs certainly have changed a lot since Jesus's day.

  • Oh, that is so stupid. A lame, terrible understanding of the OT. I should be surprised that you would post sthg like this, Dr McGrath, without at least showing that you understand their misunderstanding, but I've been burned before thinking too highly of your biblical knowledge. Wish they'd asked me…

  • I'm sure it's not too late – if you're going to be in Australia, let them know!

  • Unfortunately, that was the last ever episode of The Chaser's [i]War[/i]. They've become too high-profile in recent years to get away with most of their pranks.
