Dvar Torah Acharei-Kedoshim: Putting Abominations Back into Perspective

Linda Malcor has both a Master’s and a PhD in folklore and mythology, which seems fitting, seeing how easily her surname could have come straight from Harry Potter.

In 2000, Malcor self-published this article online about homosexuality, outlining her opinion of biblical references to abomination as a discussion with (the perhaps proverbial) Mr. Literal, who “insisted in the literal truth of every word in the Bible and was adamant that we cannot choose which laws we will or will not observe…[t]he Bible was the Word of God.”  Malcor makes some really good observations — and I mean that sincerely — but they just don’t hold up when arguing with the Torah observant Jew in 2012 (or even in 2000, when this piece was penned).

Malcor points to this week’s parsha for primary sourcing:”You shall not lie with a man as one lies with a woman — it is an abomination (to’eiva).” (Leviticus 18:22)

“A man who lies with a man as one lies with a woman — they have both done an abomination (to’eiva).  They shall be put to death — their blood be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)
