Gay Rights Groups Sue Bishop For Inciting Violence After He Quotes Bible

A Swiss Roman Catholic Bishop is being sued by gay rights organisations after he quoted an Old Testament bible passage on homosexuality at a Catholic conference. His detractors have accused him of inciting violence against gay people, as the passage in question advocates the death penalty for homosexuals. The Bishop has issued an apology.

    Bishops apologizing for the Bible?
    I’d have though he was Church of England for that one.

    Coward. Perfect pretend Christian leader for all the pretend Christians out there.

  • Preaching hatred should not be allowed. Especially if it comes from some supposed religious texts.

    This clown should be prosecuted.

    By the same standard, anyone preaching from Islamic theology which incites hatred should also be prosecuted.

    There is a difference here though. Christian old testament texts are not regularly taught and have been superseded by the New Testament.

    Islam considers its texts to be the word of Allah and cannot be changed. And they are universally taught today as the word of Allah.

    • Jabberwokk

      The New Testament denounces it as well. If he is “preaching hatred” for reading the Bible then what are you really saying about the Bible and anyone who adheres to it?

      This generation has no clue what real hatred is. It is defined as “anything i don’t want to hear”. But when it finds you it’ll change your life because it always sucks to be on the receiving end of your own judgements.

        Neither the Torah, the Old Testament nor the New Testament calls for the murder of those practising homosexual relations. In fact in the Hebrew scriptures all references are to the activity being an abomination, not the person. In Christianity it is really the same thing referring to the sin. If these radicals are really concerned about “hatred of homosexuals” let them start dealing with Islam where they get the death sentence just for being suspected homosexuals. After they clean up Islam, then perhaps they may have a bit of credibility.

        • Jabberwokk

          Agreed for the most part. Leviticus 20:13 does teach that Men who participate in that activity have done a “detestable thing” and “will be surely put to death”.

          However The New Testament does add the caveat that “wages of sin is death”

          You know what the wrath of God is? To let you have things your way.

          • Alain

            Yes, but it leaves by whom open. No time in recorded history has this been preached as a requirement of Jewish people to carry out. In any case what we must judge is the behaviour or actions of the believers of any religion or cult as opposed simply to what may be written in their text.

          • Fran800

            I think it means “The wages of sin are death … as opposed to eternal life.” Not that you get executed for it by fellow humans.

    My God, can we stop being terrorized by Gays? I am so so sick of these people.

    Trudeau said we shouldn’t go after people having gay sex in their bedrooms. Yeah, sure, we agree with that. Whoever would have thought it be this much of a slippery slope?
    Do we really have anything to gain as a society by having gays intrude in every aspect of our lives? and our children’s lives?

    This is the “culture” we are bequeathing to our grandchildren.

    • Jabberwokk

      Pfft, what grandkids? Too busy selling the parts for money. I need a Lamborghini now after all.

      Now we have certain bedrooms of the nation trying to impose their deviant bussiness on the state, and have us all pay for it.

    • Yes, they are an extremely small minority on the global scene, but just like Blacks in America (13% of total US population) they force all attention on themselves (and I’m not suggesting that their genuine and legitimate needs and injustices are not important) by a perpetual victim stance and a constant barrage of accusations. The media is entirely complicit in this since the media is the monolith which controls information and how that information is disseminated. Homosexuals operate the same exact way. In America they learned it from Blacks.

    Gays will ban the Bible before they ever ban the Koran.

    • Jabberwokk

      They may regret that when they’re are being thrown from the top of Big Ben or the CN tower.

      • Shebel

        I won’t.

    • mobuyus

      Gays wrote the koran! It is one of the gayest books ever, even gayer than One Dad Two Dads Black Dad Blue Dads.

    Queers are so stupid. I’ve yet to see any queer rights organisation issue a statement condemning the ISIS practice of throwing queers off of tall buildings.
    These Queers don’t really care about Queerdom. They’re all clueless leftists and so the only religion that’s homophobic is Christainity and only Whites can truly be ‘homophobic’.
    That said, I’ve really no aversion to queers, just really, really stupid queers like the ones in this posting

  • Once you issue an apology, the gay mafia has one under their thumb.

  • Shebel

    How does this work again?
    If a Christian says that Homosexuals are not abiding by God’s Law—- Fags sue you!

    If a Muslim says that Homos should be killed,stoned,tossed off a very high building — the Fags say nary a word in dispute.

  • Cat-astrophe

    The Catholic church talks about it, while members of the religion of peace actually do kill gays.
    A gay organization condemns the Catholics.
    What’s THAT all about?

  • This is what “hate crime” laws were created for and have been leading up to.

    • Fran800

      Truly amazing the amount of hate coming from the hate crimes lobby.

      Personally, I used to have gay friends. They were fun, but always wanted to push the envelope. If we give in to whatever they want, they just push more.
      I want nothing to do with them now.

      • Yep. Most of them are truly rude. It’s as if deep down they know their behavior is deviant, but the more they can force themselves on society the more their behavior will cease to be deviant and actually become normalized. I still an considerate of them as human beings and I would never hurt someone because I don’t like how they live, but I’m never going to smile while someone is claiming “pride” because they like to put their penises into the anuses of other men, or because the women like to use phallic objects on each other. That’s nothing to feel pride for.
