Comments: MSNBC liberal insists that America wants return to Levitical laws

The OT laws are still valid as a rule, Jesus didn't come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. But there is a distintion from the moral law and the Mosaic law. The moral law still being in effect, the Mosaic was executed by the state which made no distintion between church and state. Since we have a secular government which I (as a Christian) am grateful for, the moral law should still guide us, but not be legislated unless by popular means - democratically in other words. Also note that slave owners in Biblical times were directed (by the Jewish law) to treat their servants with dignity, but Westerners get a skewed idea of what slavery is due to the abuse of our forefathers.

Also what the writer is failing to tell you is that although most of the laws of Moses are not in the New Testament, the case against homosexuality IS in the New Testament. Liberals love to point out the Law of Moses but ignore the NTteachings about homosexuality. It doesn't fit their arguement and it points out their sin in Jesus's own words.

Neocons aren't typically socially conservative at all. I just don't know what this guy's talking about. Nicholas Kristof is even anti-Christian, and he's basically the founder of neo-conservatism.
