The Bible tells me so ... (Gay man stoned to death in PA)

Police: Pa. man, 70, stoned to death by friend


John Thomas, killing Old Testament style. (Via Connexion)


According to the complaint, 'John Thomas stated that he read in the Old Testament that homosexuals should be stoned in certain situations. The answer John Thomas received from his prayers was to put an end to the victim's life. John Thomas stated that he struck the victim approximately 10 times in the head. After the final blow, John Thomas made sure the victim was dead.' 
'He is a deeply religious man. Or so he says,' said Lansdowne Police Chief Dan Kortan.
Leviticus 20:13?  I can't be bothered to see if there's a passage that more specifically prescribes a stone as the remedy. All that morally retarded hatred, it's so tiresome.

Dear murderous morons, there are better ways than consulting ancient texts cobbled together from the oral traditions of ignorant savages when trying to figure out what the right thing to do is.

  1. What irks me is that if it had been, say,.... a Muslim stoning a Christian to death, this would be national news. A Christian killing a gay person? *crickets*

  2. It's a little hard for Christians talk about this, because they have to then explain how they are not bound by Mosaic Law since Jesus came along and all that Old Testament stuff doesn't really apply, except they still want the Ten Commandments in every court house and to use all the homophobic claptrap to justify their bigotry, except apparently the killing parts, just the bits about it being abomination, and it becomes apparent very quickly all they want to do is pick and choose to enforce their prejudices. Easier to just let the story fade away or change the subject to make it about the money and try to dodge the unpleasantness of having the bloodthirsty and demented aspects of the bible discussed.
