Because the Christian homophobes are crawling out of the woodwork. The latest is Miss Beverly Hills 2010, Lauren Ashley.
This part really annoys me though:
“The Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Ms Ashley told Fox News.
“In Leviticus it says: ‘If man lies with mankind as he would lie with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death and their blood shall be upon them.’
“The Bible is pretty black and white.
“I feel like God himself created mankind and he loves everyone, and he has the best for everyone.”
“If he says that having sex with someone of your same gender is going to bring death upon you, that’s a pretty stern warning, and he knows more than we do about life.”
Fox News – I should have known. As to the Levitical prohibition of the homosexual activities by calling the act an abomination, there are plenty of abominations in that book and not just oriented toward gay people.
As for the Bible being black and white, I suggest Ms. Thing read the fucking book. It’s anything but black and white. Lots of gray area in there.
And I have a question, if God loves everyone then why harp on the homosexual thing?
Of course when asked if she thinks her chances might be hurt by her position Ashley tries to distance herself by saying:
“I have a lot of friends that are gay, and … I have a lot of friends who have different views, and we share our views together. There’s no hate between me and anyone.
Listen peaches, go ask your gay friends if they're cool with your spouting Levitical platitudes. I can pretty much tell you they won't be happy about it.
