Overheard at Table Three: Numbers 5

Billy: Heard some poor-choicer using the Bible the other day, saying that it was pro-abortion.

Joe: Numbers 5.    When a guy thinks his wife is cheating on him, he can take her to the priest.

Jim: and the priest gives her a concoction that will make her have a miscarriage if she's pregnant.

Bob: and if she's pregnant and she miscarries, then she's guilty of adultery.

Billy: Think I remember that, something about mixing up the potion to give her, barley and water.

Joe: Beer?

Jim:  Old Testament beer.   It's more like mead.

Bob: Makes it sound like the Bible is more of an apothecary manual than a legal text.

Billy: What I find weird is how people who don't even believe in the Bible always want to use it to support their claim.

Joe: Well, it IS for everybody, you know.

Jim: Even those who disagree with everything contained therein.

Bob: Them most especially.
