I had missed you for so long, and I merely could not see the light until I first got past the dark.

“They are only children,” Harry explained, “like you. You, however, are different, through no fault of your own, and that is all the matters to them.” He reached out and raised her chin as she looked down. “Some people will accept you for who you are, Gabrielle Delacour, and some people won’t. The ones that will are the ones that will be your friends for eternity. But you, you have to do the hardest thing.”

“What’s that?” she asked, as she looked into his eyes.

“Be yourself and don’t compromise. One of my best friends is a werewolf. He went to school with my father and my godfather. He is the bravest man I have ever met. He has stood up to injustice, to prejudice and persecution. And he is still the most honourable man I know. He is the sort of person that I aim to become.

“But I am determined, Gabrielle, that I’ll do what ever I can to stop it. I’ll stop the prejudice and persecution that comes from being different. It sickens me deep inside, that wonderful people are outcasts through no fault of their own. People smirking and looking down on others because of blood, because of race, because of species, is bigotry, pure and simple. All intelligent species are equal, and I won’t rest until that notion is enshrined in the core of human belief.”

And yes, that's part 3 of 3. Of what is supposed to be the last chapter. I'm still reading, so I can't say if it really is or not.

Dear God

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I don't remember seeing it.

Dear God,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding your Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would propose and support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. As your tool President Bush said, "in the eyes of God marriage is based between a man a woman." I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18: 22 clearly states it to be an abomination. . . End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25: 44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21: 7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness - Lev. 15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev. 1: 9. The problem is, my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35: 2. Clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11: 10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21: 20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11: 6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19: 19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev. 24: 10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20: 14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
