Surprisingly decent post from Bill. Those that demand a literal translation of the bible, and of the levitical rules that prohibit tattoos, would do themselves a service by reading the rest of those rules.

These rules all exist within the same chapters that appear to prohit tattoos, and enforcing some but not all would be the height of hypocrisy.

The Nazis liked tattoos too, Bill. Of course, we know you like to bash Israel so this fits.
