As many folk try and find meaning in their life, Christians often ask themselves 'WWJD?' - 'What would Jesus do?' in order to gain perspective on
what the right thing to do is. However, Jesus wouldn't be bothered fashioning chairs or tables, with his carpentry or even cure the sick, but would
walk down the high street, waving a massive placard proclaiming 'REPENT FAGS OR DIE'.
The 'Jesus as tightly wound braindead bigoted sociopath' reading of the Bible has proven quite popular with the Evanglicals throughout the world.
Over here in Scotland, Rangers football player Marvin Andrews caused mass outrage in the Scottish gay community by claiming that he could 'heal'
them of their sinful indulgences.
Then he went on ranting that gays shouldn't be running government and a prominent lesbian MSP was also targeted in his deluded rant. She was not best
Probebly taking exception to the word "healing".
She probebly feels fine.
I've tried going through the Good Book trying to find anti-gay sentiments, but alas, they are hard to pick out. The New Testement's supposed
anti-gay message is a wee couple of comments made by Paul the Apostle in Romans 1:26-27 on the sins of the Gentiles - "God gave them up unto shameful
affections" and depends on the translation of the mysterious Ancient Greek word 'arsenokoites' (and I promise I didn't make that up) which
could mean 'gay partner', or maybe 'male temple prostitute', or perhaps even 'super sexy gigolo for rich women'.
Yep. Surely a solid enough base for bigotry if there ever has been one.
Jesus accepts all doesn't he? He told his diciples that God's vision embraces everyone - prostitutes, poor people, lepers and even those
rapscallions, those tree climbing tax inspectors. Jesus doesn't even mention bum sex, or any other gay-related issue even once. Not even mutual
masterbation. So therefore if he didn't mention them, how can he be against them?
