Measure No. 9 Argument in Favor

Accordign to the book of LEVITICUS in the Bible, OYSTER-EATING, CROSSBREEDING CATTLE, SHAVING A BEARD, WEARING CLOTHING MADE OF MIXED FIBERS, CURSING ONE'S PARENTS and ADULTERY are just as immoral as HOMOSEXUALTIY. If the OCA's "No Special Rights" Committee wants to take one of the 3,000 year old laws of ritual holiness from Leviticus and put it into the Bill of Rights in the state constitution, they should be sincere enough to put all the rest of LEVITICUS into the constitution as well. It's a simple matter of respect for these historic laws to treat them consistently.

We at the SPECIAL RIGHTEOUSNESS COMMITTEE are just as offended by homosexuality, and we have just as much right as the OCA does to change the state constitution to require government discrimination against people whose behavior we don't like.

My friends, do you want the public schools teaching your children that shaving is a legitimate and equal alternative style to a normal and healty beard? Would you want to be forced to hire an oyster-eater to direct your church choir? Adam and Eve wore fig leaves -100 percent fig leaves- and this is divine proof that those disgustingly unnatural cotton/polyester blends are sinful. And when the OCA was analyzing the threat to traditional family values, we don't know how they managed to overlook adultery! Why, there's a lot more adultery than homosexuality going on out there, and extrapolations from OCA statistics show that 90 PERCENT of the people who have engaged in SEXUAL PERVERSIONS are HETEROSEXUAL ("straight").

The state condones adultery by not punishing it with DEATH as required by LEVITICUS. It promotes oyster-eating by licensing seafood restaurants, and it allows people to take mixed fibers out of the closet and to flaunt them right out in public without being fired or evicted! The state is encouraging sin!

If the OCA can have the special right to make their personal moral agenda into public policy, then anyone else also should be able to amend the Bill of Rights to eliminate basic human rights for people who they don't like.

Let's put ALL of LEVITICUS into the constitution! A "yes" vote is the first step in facilitating our militant moral aganda.
