More fun with bible passages!*

Heard this one in English class, thought some stuff sounded off, especially the way the bible liked to use the verb "lay" and it's many conjugates.

Isaiah 11:6 "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them."

So let's see here. First off let me say that the quote that led me in this direction was the misquote our English teacher gave to us via popular usage ("The lion shall lay down with the lamb"), which made me wonder why the bible would be supportive of interspecies sheet-dancing.

Ok, so wolves and lambs living together, not a problem...though lamb means younger sheep...uh...hmm.

That leopard lying down with the young goat thing is kinda sketchy too, I'm almost suprised none of the preists used that for justification of...well you know. Then there's the calf and the young lion and the fatling (a pig maybe) wrangling either a 3-way or some polygamous relationships. All led by a child.
