Lefties and religion

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Lefties : One Thread

Christianity and Islam don't seem to like the left hand too much. Left-handed children are beaten to force them to write with the right hand for instance. Are all religions biased against lefties? What other kind of persecutions do religions impose upon lefties?

In The Bible New International Version it reads: Judges 20:16 "Among all these soldiers there were seven hundred chosen men who were left-handed, each of whom could sling a stone at a hair and not miss it." This tells me something about left-handers, they are talented or skillful. Most of the left-handed people I know are talented in some type of art, sport or skill. By the way, I'm left-handed and I can draw and I'm creative. I play quarterback because I can throw farther than most of my friends. I also do wedding photography.
