Electric fence to surround gays and other dumb things said
I haven't written about gay rights for a number of articles. Well, my file on dumb things said by anti-gay zealots is building up. There is the North Carolina preacher, Charles Worley, who said in a sermon on May 13th:
"I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queer. Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there, [drop some food down] … Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out… And you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out." I think a group already did something like that to gays, they were called the Nazis.
Another North Carolina preacher thinks oral/anal sex among men and women is fine, but not with gays. According to Rev. Patrick Woodson, sperm or seed is not supposed to be wasted and that is why homosexuality is wrong, but when it isn't used for direct sexual intercourse between a man and a woman, that is fine anyway. He also believes that gay men wear diapers from all the sex they have.
Those on the Christian rightwing often quote Leviticus 18:22 of the bible which states (ASV version): "And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." So, since they use this line to oppose the bible, are they not in fact calling for the execution of gay men who have sex with other men? What about lesbians? They aren't, because they know their fellow citizens will know how nuts they are in fact.
Also, why do they still eat shellfish, though the (ASV) bible states: "Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you." So, I think grocery stores should ban the selling of pork or lobsters to those who use the bible to oppose gay rights. That seems fair. After all, we want to ensure they aren't committing an act that is an abomination onto their deity. More lamb chops for the rest of us!
