So - I'm beginning my indepth studies into religious articles for a book I'm looking to write. So - I've started with the bible and rather than just listening to what preachers have told me in the past (raised catholic) I'm reading each passage one by one. I don't think I've done it since the nuns directed me through the bible in my early days. So I come across a passage I obviously have never ready before because it struck me dumbfounded and slightly horrified. Read it to my wife and it did the same to her. This might be more well known, but, it was a shock to me. Now - there are a lot of messed up things in Exodus. Like how we are all supposed to sacrifice our first born sons. But Exodus 29 was shocking so I had to share it. I won't type out the entire passage, if you'd like to read it please grab your local bible or look it up. But apparently the old way to turn a man into a priest used a bull and two goats. Plus several plates of non yeast food. The bull would be sacrificed and his blood spread across the alter and over the priests. Same as the goats. I was blown away by this. So - my take into other religions is limited to what Rabis or other religious leaders have dictated me towards. I'm just wondering if any of you can guide me to any eye popping shocking religious segments. Also - I'm quite curious as to your guys comments on Exodus 29. Because as someone who spent his childhood in a church and at one point thought of becoming a priest I was so taken aback by this passage it blew my mind.
