This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
As a Jew this is extremely interesting to me.

I don’t understand Glee‘s writers. I really don’t. They’re like if really talented chefs prepared a four-course, five-star meal and right before they served it to you, literally every single time before they set the plate down on the table, they were like, “You know what’ll make this taste even better? If I spit in it.” And then you’re like, “Wow, gross. It looks good and smells good but all I can think about is how you fucking spit in it.” And they’re like, “God! We slave and slave and slave over these dinners and you’ll never be happy!” And you’re like, “I would be happy if you’d just stop spitting in the food!” And they’re like, “You hate all food!” And you’re like, “No, you asshole. I love food. I love your food. I just hate spit in my food.” And they’re like, “OK, here’s the same dish served a different way. And also here is my spit in it.” And you’re like, “Seriously? I can’t eat here anymore.” And they’re like, “Stupid angry lesbians.”
Just make the meal and stop spitting in, Glee! Jesus, how hard can that possibly be?!
[…]Let it be, let be. Let it be, let it be. Stop spitting in my pasta, frikkin’ Glee.Greatest. Thing. Ever. Written.”
This loft situation? With the group? And the song? This is your show. Get Blaine and Sam to New York, send Artie if you’re still so inclined and turn Glee into Friends: The Musical. The high school plot is worn out, and the show needs to grow with its audience. What better way than showcasing a group of idealistic Midwest kids trying to make it as performers in New York? You have the steady couple planning a wedding and juggling school and jobs, the ingenue with her first big break, the kids forgoing college in favor of breaking into the industry, and even the one who prefers the behind the scenes approach. This is a better foundation than most shows have, and is better than anything you’re doing by keeping them in separate storylines.
They can all work at the diner and live in the loft (or maybe there’s conveniently another loft across the hall for a few to move into) and the combinations are endless for group songs. Parents and friends can swing through for a visit every episode – everyone loves going to New York! The group of actors you have here have so much history and so much chemistry that everything else on the show seems cheap in comparison, so let them take it and run. This is what will breathe life into the rest of the series. End it all with a big reunion at the Klaine wedding in the season six (and series) finale and leave on a good note.
Call me. I have ideas.
Edit: Mercedes DID tell Shane, yes, but not until after she had spent some time with Sam. Plus, we all know that Mercedes is pretty mature and stable character.
