Dear Dr. Laura,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law.  I 
have learned a great deal from you, and I try to share that knowledge 
with as many people as I can.  When someone tries to defend the 
homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind him that Leviticus 
18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination.  End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific 
laws and how to best follow them.

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.  How should I deal with this?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as it suggests in Exodus 
21:7.  In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her 
period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24).  The problem is, how 
do I tell?  I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states I may buy slaves from the nations that are around us. 
A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans but not Canadians. 
Can you clarify?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.  Exodus 35:2 
clearly states he should be put to death.  Am I morally obligated to 
kill him myself?

Lev. 21:18,20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have 
a defect in my sight.  I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does 
my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you 
can help.  Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal 
and unchanging.

Your devoted disciple and adoring fan
