What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Gays and the Bible" and how people can interpret the word of God in various ways:

"Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?" — deb

About "Barbecue Team Name Contest" and the Hungry Memphis blog's call for the best names for a Memphis in May team:

"I Did Not Have Pork with That Woman — Miss Cue-insky." — phlo

About "Letter from the Editor" and how the TV stations handled the weather crisis last week:

"Bruce is dead-on with the 'weathergasmic mode' comment; these guys are gnashing at the teeth for this kind of weather. They get all giddy and euphoric off all the excitement. Tornadoes, bow echoes, straight-line winds, shear markers, etc. are their drugs of choice." — JAM

About "In the Rough" and the possible closing of the T.O. Fuller State Park golf course:

"It's no accident that the golf courses that are most used by African Americans are the ones being targeted for closure. Pine Hill, Fox Meadows, Whitehaven in the city's system have already suffered partial closure, and now the golf course black folks have always considered their own (maybe because of its history), Fuller, is about to disappear. This, I'm sorry to say, is an all-too-familiar scenario." — Lilas Pastia

Comment of the Week:

About "Gays and the Bible":

"When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord

— Lev. 1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?" — deb
