  •  The laws of the Old Testament are not "long dead." (1+ / 0-)

    There is no country today where the laws of the Old Testament are the law of the land -- but they are still practiced, within limits imposed by various state laws, by religious Jews everywhere.  Some of them (not many) are practiced by Christians as well.

    If there were a Jewish or Christian theocracy anywhere in the world, there is no telling what it would look like.

    Personally, I'm glad there isn't -- and I'm religious.
