Exodus 22:18: "Do not allow a sorceress to live" (NIV)

That's just a little harsh. I know some lovely witches.

Exodus 22:19,20 - "Anyone who has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death. Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the LORD must be destroyed."

To be fair, I did like Exodus 25 - "If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest."

I mean, it's not fair that it seems to only apply to fellow Jews, but any rule against usury is a good rule in my book.
