Judges 19 interpreted by Neil Gaiman
Leviticus 20 interpreted by Alan Moore

Having read the latter; anyone feeling like going to Pride this weekend should know that Christian Voice are going to be picketing the event, so why not go down with a home made sign that quotes other anachronistic gems from Leviticus like:

Chapter 19 –
Verse 19: …thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.
Verse 27: Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
Chapter 20 –
Verse 9: For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death.

…just a thought.
