Curbing Homophobes

Fundamentalist Christian preachers have an absurd level of homophobia. Like Hitler, they want all gay people put to death by the most painful means they can think of. Listening to their fulminations can be quite amusing, however they are not harmless. Why?

The golden rule advises doing unto others what you would have them do unto you. Fundamentalist preachers are thus advertising the way they want to be treated is to be kept on the straight and narrow by being put to death for any violations of God’s law in the Old Testament such as:

Biblical morality is so insane and so out of date, even the most fanatical Christians ignore it, while giving it lip service. e.g.

That’s not morality. That is obsessive-compulsive disorder. None of those commandments make any sense except avoiding shellfish in a world without refrigeration, but there is no need to kill anyone.

I think it is time to treat such hate speech the same way we treat non-religious hate speech, threats and counseling to suicide. These hateful old goats deserve to be treated for the criminals they are.
