We seem to have missed a Friday entry (Naughty Teek!) so I’ll just post early today.
These people are #1 on my list of “Folks Who Need to be Smited Right Now by Whatever Higher Power Can Get to Them First.” Why?
“In protest of the 2006 WorldPride Parade, scheduled to take place in Jerusalem on August 10, hundreds of letters, advocating “death to Sodomites”, were distributed to Jerusalem mailboxes on Tuesday morning. They promised NIS 20,000 to “anyone who brings about the death of one of the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
The flyer also included a request–and instructions–for fireboming the parade.
I’m having an awful lot of trouble understanding why there is so much hatred of homosexuals. (Of course, in an earlier post, I mentioned that I have a bit of a crush on 7 of 9.)
And what kind of animal could ever do this to another human being?
I. Just. Don’t. Get. It.
If I’m not scaring the horses, what’s the big deal? The Pentagon is even afraid of gay people!
The American Psychiatric Association has a very nice statement of opposition to any sort of “therapy” to change sexual orientation. With some sort of homosexual behavior documented in over 400 species, it’s getting hard (no pun intended) to buy the idea that being gay is un-natural. There is also a growing body of evidence suggesting biological components of homosexuality.
To end this with a smile: the wonderful response of some creative people in St. Louis to a hateful billboard by Exodus.
