Gay outrage ironic
Don’t you love irony? It’s almost as amusing as its close cousin, hypocrisy.
Lately, there’s been nothing more entertaining than listening to Bible-toting politicians spluttering in indignation at Putin’s new ‘hateful’ anti-gay law, which, upon examination, actually pales in hatefulness when compared to their own Biblical Mosaic law which condemns homosexuals to death. (Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”)
One would assume that these poster-boy Christians would be congratulating Putin for at least giving a nod to the anti-gay teachings of their Bible. Instead, we see these pious politicos berating Russia’s intolerance and grinning for the cameras in Gay Pride parades.
Love that irony. Thank God we’re atheists.
