At Least He Has A Beard
As far as Mr. Duck's comments go, at least he has a beard. Most of these biblical selective readers stand there, clean shaven, eating plates of shrimp, uncircumcised, hat less etc, violating several pages of the Old Testament while condemning others for violating another page. Yes, he has a beard, but if this Old Testament aficionado is following all of the rules in Leviticus, I'm a monkey's uncle.
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Even worse, and here Mr. Duck is as guilty as any of them, they entirely ignore the New Testament and eschew the teachings of Jesus entirely. Even the mainstream Christian churches will tell you that you have to read the Old Testament with a sense of humor since Jesus came along. There are still rules, though. There's more to Christianity than "personal savior equals eternal reward." You have to love your neighbor, for Christ's sake! (To coin a phrase.)
The Old Testament is history at this point, it is no longer dogma, and the New Testament is not a book of rules, it is a set of principles that boils down to love each other and especially try to help the least among you.
Judge not . . .
So this Duck fellow is the bully, not the victim. Get it straight, or plan to suffer at the hands of the One who is empowered to judge.
