In fairness, most of that stuff is in the Old Testament... In fact, most christian religions don't buy into it and the teachings in the New Testament are very often contradictory.

Yet somehow this one line of Leviticus always pops up, coming from people that don't give a crap about anything else in Leviticus. Or any of the other crazy parts of the Old Testament.

Interestingly, divorce being an abomination is reaffirmed by Christ himself several times. And it certainly laughs in the face of the sanctity of marriage. But you don't really hear people telling the government to stop issuing them very often.

You're absolutely right, which ties into the point I was trying to make, which is they get to pick and choose, and if we're going to give people a pass for discrimination against homosexuals, then we should also allow Christian's to beat their wives.
I mean if, 'the bible said so' is good enough for discriminating against people, it would stand to reason that same argument would work for domestic abuse.
