"Eve" and " Yves" are homonyms.

George has an amazing sense of humor. "Please tell me where this island of men is."

He also has a good sense of signage. Seriously people, you're not supposed to write essays on signs.

I'm surprised that the usual suspects haven't chimed in yet with their complaints of Takei's "intolerance". lol.

Was the yolo tag on the 'Adam not Steve' sign satirical?

Don't forget homophones, too!

(Hrm... ever notice that B and N are right beside each other on a standard US keyboard?).

Takei I think is saying that humans perception of 'God's Law' has changed through history and it doesn't make sense to pick out A and say the Bible prohibits but no longer B.

Also, Leviticus contains the quote that anti-gay people use to say that being gay is against God's law. There's a widely circulated open letter written to Dr. Laura with some other choice Leviticus quotes and the The West Wing speech it inspired.

Ah, got it. Makes Takei just that bit more awesomer to me now.

(And man, Lev 11:7-8... I thought it was just Muslims that needed to avoid pork.)

Obviously not REAL Jews!

(Interesting to me that, AFAIK, Jews don't have a history of blowing each other up over what defines their religion as do Christians and Muslims...)

Unfortunately, I think Jews have the history of being blown up because of their religion. But then they persevere .... and then they eat, so it's all good.
