] ] President Bartlet (Martin Sheen): I like how you call

] ] Jenna Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an

] ] President Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you

] ] interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery
] ] as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown
] ] sophmore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table
] ] when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be?
] ] While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of
] ] Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath.
] ] Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I
] ] morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to
] ] call the police? Here's one that's really important
] ] because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town:
] ] touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean.
] ] Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the
] ] Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame?
] ] Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be
] ] together to stone my brother John for planting different
] ] crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small
] ] family gathering for wearing garments made from two
] ] different threads? Think about those questions, would
] ] you?
] Found this the other day and thought the Memestreams audience
