Weird Wednesdays: In which we find out that God isn’t a fan of the ADA

That would be the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Leviticus 21:16-24

16 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 17 “Speak to Aaron, saying, ‘No man of your offspring throughout their generations who has a defect shall approach to offer the food of his God. 18 For no one who has a defect shall approach: a blind man, or a lame man, or he who has a disfigured face, or any deformed limb, 19 or a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, 20 or a hunchback or a dwarf, or one who has a defect in his eye or eczema or scabs or crushed testicles. 21 No man among the descendants of Aaron the priest who has a defect is to come near to offer the Lord’s offerings by fire; since he has a defect, he shall not come near to offer the food of his God. 22 He may eat the food of his God, both of the most holy and of the holy, 23 only he shall not go in to the veil or come near the altar because he has a defect, so that he will not profane My sanctuaries. For I am the Lord who sanctifies them.’” 24 So Moses spoke to Aaron and to his sons and to all the sons of Israel.

God: “Oh… sorry, you’re blind… you can’t serve Me.”

Blind man: “Uh… I was born this way… you sort of made me this way.”

God: “Yeah… uh… right… still… no blind people serving in the Temple. There’s a sign right there.”

Blind man: “Which I might be able to read if You’d heal my eyes.”

God: “Sorry. I don’t do that. You’ll have to wait for my Son. He’s pretty good at restoring sight.”

Blind man: “Right. When will He be here?”

God: “In another 1500 years or so…”

Blind man: “Oh, for Your sake…”
