Homosexuality is as Wicked as Genocide
A homophobic Christian announced that he believed homosexuals should be executed because homosexuality was morally equivalent to genocide.
I fail to see the parallel. Genocide harms all the people killed and causes grief to the surviving loved ones. Homosexuality affects no one but the homosexual and his/her partner. When it is allowed to flourish unmolested, it brings joy to the couple. When it is not, it brings misery to both.
Most people, even Christians, oppose arranged marriages. But our homophobe wants to arrange the pairings of all the homosexuals on earth and pair them up with a completely repulsive opposite sex partner. Why does he think he is better qualified to choose life partners than the people themselves?
Homophobia nearly always comes from biblical superstition. Persecuting gays is just a form of trying to force Christianity down the throats of others. In Canada, we are supposed to have freedom of religion and freedom from religion.
Christians often justify their homophobia by saying the bible commands it in Leviticus 18:22. For some reason, of all the thousands of commandments in the bible, the only one homophobes pay attention to, is Leviticus 18:22. They ignore the others.
Biblical morality is so insane and so out of date, even the most fanatical Christians ignore it, while giving it lip service. e.g.
- beat your wife and kids.
- dash out the brains of babes of neighbouring tribes.
- do not use antibiotics.
- force women to marry their rapists.
- keep slaves.
- kill anyone who eats leftovers on the third day.
- kill adulterous women.
- kill all Ameleks or any of dozens of other ethnicities.
- kill all Sunday shoppers.
- kill all brides without hymens.
- kill all gays, not just refuse to make them cakes.
- kill all prostitutes.
- kill all unwed mothers.
- kill all witches.
- kill anyone of a different religion and all their Christian friends.
- kill anyone who cuts his hair or beard. Elsewhere it condemns you for not trimming your beard. Elsewhere it demands rounded and square shapes. You can’t win.
- kill anyone who eats a shrimp, lobster, owl, rabbit, rare roast, snail, hare, clam, shrimp, oyster, camel, pork, swan, owl, eagle, osprey, bat, dog, locust, beetle or dozens of other animals.
- kill anyone who grows more than one species of plant in a field.
- kill anyone who owns a painting.
- kill anyone who rakes leaves on Sunday.
- kill anyone who says the word god.
- kill anyone who wears more than one type of fibre in his clothing.
- kill anyone with a statue in their yard.
- kill anyone with a tattoo.
- kill females who speak in public.
- kill sassy teens.
- obey rules involving ritual uncleanliness of menstruation.
- you must sacrifice animals.
- you must use separate cookware and dishes for milk and meat.
- you must love your enemies.
- you must sell all you have and give the proceeds to the poor. Take no thought for the morrow. Become a homeless person.
- you must abandon your family.
- being horny is equivalent to adultery, but only for heterosexual males. This encourages real adultery on the grounds of being hanged as a sheep as a lamb. The purpose of this law is to keep males perpetually guilty and hence easy to manipulate. This is just the fantasy of a paedophile priest, who inspired Islam’s 72 virgins.
- It is ok to beat your slaves so long as they do not die immediately.
- Raping a child is ok. Adultery with an unmarried female is ok. Owning a slave is ok.
- JWs (Jehovah’s Witnesses) claim the bible commands no blood transfusions, even if it means death. There is no such commandment. Transfusions were not invented until 1818. There are commandments about eating blood, but JWs ignore the other dietary commandments.
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.
The god our homophobe worships, ironically, not only condones genocide, he commands it.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
