Stoning gays to death on religious grounds?


This 2011 video is called Man Stoned to Death in US Because Bible Says Stone Gays.

By Peter Frost in Britain:

Spiritual guidance: Justin Welby‘s position untenable, shocker!

Friday 13th June 2013

PETER FROST turns to the book of Leviticus in the hope of cracking a series of existentialist conundrums

When bigoted homophobic Christians and Jews seek to justify their despicable views they usually turn to the holy book.

We have seen and heard it in the recent debates about gay clergy and same-sex marriage.

Homosexuality is an abomination — it must be true, it says so in the Bible. Look it up yourself — Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22.

So if it’s that simple does this wise old geezer Leviticus have any other rules to make life easy and more pleasant?

Well, yes, he does. One in particular is going to make my domestic arrangements much easier.

Leviticus clearly states — in 25: 44, if you need to know — that I can have slaves, both male and female.

There is only one proviso, they must be from neighbouring nations.

So there is nothing to stop me having a Scotsman to do the heavy work around Chez Frost and a nice Welsh woman to cook and clean.

Trouble is she wouldn’t be able to cook my favourite Welsh delicacy — Mumbles Bay Cockles — because according to our old mate Leviticus, eating any shellfish is as much an abomination as being gay.

Other abominations according to Leviticus? Well in fact quite a few.

No contact of any kind with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness.

Leviticus also points out (21: 20) that nobody may approach the altar of God if they have a defect in their sight. The choice is yours — Church of England or Specsavers but not both.

Archbishop Justin Welby

So it’s not just women banned from being bishops but also anyone wearing glasses. Rules out the Archbishop of Canterbury (pictured), I reckon.

It’s not all negative. Leviticus positively encourages burning a bull or an ox on the altar as a sacrifice.

Cattle might be all right but touching the skin of a dead pig is a definite no-no (11: 6-8).

God help you if you are a gay footballer. A double abomination. No wonder the brave Thomas Hitzlsperger waited till he had retired before coming out.

Most mix ’n’ match is definitely out in old Letivicus’s book.

Plant two different plants in the same field and you commit an abomination (11: 11).

Same goes for wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread.

That cotton-polyester blend shirt is a definite abomination just as bad as being gay. No wonder gay people favour pure cotton.

Leviticus bans trimming any of your hair — head or beard — it’s all an…

Yes, you guessed it. Leviticus even defines how these sinners should perish. Gather all the village together, he declares, to stone them to death (21: 1-16).

The same punishment gets doled out to those who swear or blaspheme. Jesus! That seems a bit harsh.

Those guilty of sleeping with their in-laws, however, should be burnt alive in private (20: 14). Subtle, these Old Testament rules.

I could go on but perhaps we are being a bit cruel to old Leviticus. He isn’t the only one the Bible-bashers treat as holy writ.

Exodus (21: 7) makes it quite plain there is nothing wrong with selling your daughter into slavery.

Working on the Sabbath however is much more serious — Exodus approves the death penalty for that.

You could be havin’ a laugh except that the so-called Christians who trot out this bigoted nonsense have condemned a good few people to lives of misery and are likely to do the same for a good few more if we let them get away with it.

God bless ’em. For they know not what they do.

  1. A pity the bigots are so smug when they find a particular passage that suits them but would then decry the notion that the ‘Good Book’ holds more contradictions than you can shake a stick at.
    BTW. When you finish with your little Welsh Woman, if she’s from the North will you see if she can slip me in?
