Canada's own Unhinged Catholic gets all relativistic and selective with her own Good Book:
Earl, guess what: that stuff in Deuteronomy? That's in the Old Testament. Therefore everything in it comes under two categories: the time bound and the eternal. There is stuff in it that applies to us always. Then there is stuff that was intended for the Jews 5,000 years ago when they were in various states of disarray and sinfulness. Jesus brought the New Dispensation.
And that's how one weasels out of the undeniably batshit-crazy idiocy in the Old Testament -- just claim that some of it (the batshit crazy stuff, I'm guessing) doesn't apply anymore.
Sadly, Kathy's lord and saviour already has an opinion on the subject (emphasis added):
Matthew 5:17-18 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
Jesus: 1. Kathy: 0.
