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Biblical morality is so insane and so out of date, even the most fanatical Christians ignore it, while giving it lip service.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

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.
