IF ANY OF YOU THOUGHT THAT THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS IS IRRELEVANT to the twenty-first century, think again. At the moment it figures in about 127 Google News links, including here and here (the gay bishop debate); here (the same debate illustrated by the laws of kashrut, although the author gets his facts wrong: the no milk and meat rule comes from rabbinic exegesis of Exodus 23:19, 34:26, and Deuteronomy 14:21, it's not in Leviticus or the Bible); here (tattoos); here (Jehovah's Witnesses and blood transfusions); and here (house mold).

Just so you know.
