Dear Doctor Laura

The Huffington Post has a transcript of radio entertainer Laura Schlessinger completely losing her cool with a caller who objects to her husband’s friends racist language. At least she’s apologizing, but it’s kind of a mess anyway.

Below is an oldie but goodie that never fails to crack me up…

Dear Dr. Laura,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind him that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific laws and how to best follow them.

•When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
•I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
•I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

You can read the rest here, more later, got to go to work now.

  1. One of my all-time favorite shows, The West Wing, had a scene in its second season that deftly took on the likes of Dr. Laura. Check out the clip on YouTube:

    1. That’s one of the great moments in a show full of great moments. Thanks for this.

  2. “pop” psychology,like”pop” medicine really sucks.
    They are both deadly serious disciplines that need an individualized and methodical approach by the practitioner.
    Anything else is irresponsible.
    There is ONE really responsible TV dcotor-he’s on Fox Sundays and I think his name is Siegel-he’s the old style doctor who really explains things-no quick easy solutions to complex problems from that guy.

  3. I like the one about it being of to own foreigners as slaves. i’d love to own a Canadian. :-D
