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:

  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.
