Bible Studies in Hollywood

 

And ye shall dine on tofu burgers, and parsnips of the earth - and no more dancing with boys!

No meat at the party for “Noah” premiere because, says the producer, Noah was a vegetarian. I certainly don’t care about how a band of nut cakes in LaLa Land interprets the bible (although Genesis 9:2 wouldn’t seem to lend itself easily to a stricture against eating meat*) but it is sort of humorous that film stars, not noted for their piety and strict adherence to either the Old or New Testaments, rely on selected readings to support whatever their latest fetish is.

What would happen to Hollywood if these same people gave heed to the prohibitions in Leviticus against shrimp cocktails, oysters on the half-shell and homos in bed together? The industry would shut down overnight.

“But all in the seas or in the rivers that do not have fins and scales, all that move in the water or any living thing which is in the water, they are an abomination to you.” (Leviticus 11:10)

“They (shellfish) shall be an abomination to you; you shall not eat their flesh, but you shall regard their carcasses as an abomination.” (Leviticus 11:11)

“If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)

 

*1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

    As I age, I’m really losing tolerance for these self-righteous actors / producers / directors / musicians.

    They were the fools and jesters of societies past. Proof that the good ol days weren’t all bad.

    A rounder picture of the vegan/omnivore time-split before and after the flood is seen with Gen 9: 1 – 6

    9 God went on to bless Noah and his sons and to say to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth.

    2 A fear of you and a terror of you will continue upon every living creature of the earth and upon every flying creature of the heavens, upon everything that moves on the ground and upon all the fish of the sea. They are now given into your hand.

    3 Every moving animal that is alive may serve as food for you.+ Just as I gave you the green vegetation, I give them all to you.

    4 Only flesh with its life [soul]—its blood—you must not eat.+ 5 Besides that, I will demand an accounting for your lifeblood. I will demand an accounting from every living creature; and from each man I will demand an accounting for the life of his brother.

    6 Anyone shedding man’s blood, by man will his own blood be shed,+ for in God’s image He made man.

    Visited a baptist church last weekend.
    Boy do they know how to sing & praise Jesus!
    I was the only white person there. Oh and a homeless white male sat in front of me.
    Amen!

    Dude –
    So let me understand this. There was no meat because Noah was a vegetarian? Really?

    So some people really believe some Jew, 5,000 years ago, built a boat big enough to carry a pair of each kind of animal on the Earth. Without power tools. And they all got along. Who buys that? And where did the animals get their food, and take a crap?

    Believing Superman existed, born to scientist Jor-El and his wife Lara on the planet Krypton, and named Kal-El, is more believable. It really is, if you think about it. And then. AND THEN!! The future Superman was launched into space as a baby by his parents as their doomed planet was exploding. And he came here to fight for truth, justice, and the American way!! THAT IS MORE LIKELY!!

    I buy that before I buy the whole Noah crap. And what if Superman was born a slum? What would we do then? Probably give up pork. That’s for sure. But I still couldn’t buy in to the whole vegan thing. Their dump’s smell worse than a horses ass.

    Your Pal,
    Walt

      The arc was probably just a big quffa, Walt. See, you can carry around all your friends and your livestock, too. As you can also see from the pic, they were very popular modes of transport back in the day.
