So there I was redditting when I came across a diddy in Ezekiel 20 that amused me. Somehow, I missed including a good biblical passage into my book, Sex in the Name of God.
Ezekiel 23 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.
There is a hint of jealousy regarding size, and God forbid women should get any big ideas.
This sounds like a true case of “penis envy,” a term coined by the famous Sigmund Freud wherein women don’t have penises; therefore they are envious of men.
My book also contains fun celebrity quotes and interesting current laws. One of the laws I researched is still on the books.
Mississippi Code: Crimes Against Public Morals and Decency in General
- 97-29-57 – Stallion or jack not to be kept in public view or permitted to run at large
A person shall not keep a stallion or jack nearer than one hundred yards to a church, or in public view in an inclosure bordering on a public highway, or nearer thereto, than one hundred yards; nor shall any person stand such animals in open view of any public place, or negligently keep such animal or suffer it to run at large. Any such offender, upon conviction, shall be fined not less than twenty-five dollars, and shall be liable for all damages done by such animals so kept or running at large.
A jack is a male donkey or ass; a stallion is an uncastrated horse.
This law was written under the under the guise of morality, yet there are no similar laws for male parts of goats or sheep.
Between the bible’s green-eyed disdain of a gal’s want for the well-hung, and the Mississippi law regarding big parts running at large, it seems that Freud was onto something. Unfortunately, his cocaine-ridden brain got things backwards.
It turns out that penis envy is a complex experienced by men.
God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.
