Cenk Uygur – Not Another Word on Gay Marriage Until They Execute an Adulterer

Now this is a great opinion post. Have a relative that hates gays and gay marriage? Make them read this. Then ask them the simple question posed by the author: By what method do you pick and choose the passages from the Bible when it comes time to justify your hate? Because if your really using the Bible as your guidebook, you have a lot of killing to do… including (most likely) yourself.

A little excerpt:

The religious right picks and chooses which parts of the Bible they want to apply. And they choose based on which outsider group they would like to hate next. First, they emphasized slavery in the Bible when they wanted to hate black people. Now, they emphasize the parts condemning homosexuality so they can hate gay people.

They are completely and utterly disingenuous. They don’t mean a word of it. They don’t give a damn what the Bible says. They just want to use it as an instrument of hate.

The Bible says eating shellfish is an abomination. Yet there are no Red Lobster Amendments. The Bible says you shall not wear two different types of cloths at the same time. Yet there are no Propositions against cotton and wool combos.

The Bible says you should leave your family and join Jesus Christ. The religious right pretends that Jesus was about family values. He wanted you to abandon your family. Read the Bible.

The religious right pretends that the Bible says marriage is between one man and one woman. But that is a bald faced lie. Have any of these people ever read the Bible? The Bible is full of men taking on second wives, servants, prostitutes and concubines. And all the while, God heartily approves. How many wives did King David have? Eight? Twelve? Let alone his possibly gay lover, Jonathan.

Now the Bible says that a man shall not lie with another man. That is true. But it also says, in the same exact book, that adultery is an abomination. And the just punishment for this sin is execution. So, who will execute the first adulterer? Please step on up…

  1. I don’t know what Bible you are reading but it sure isn’t mine. Everything you say the Bible says is completely untrue. I have read the Bible, taught it in fact ….perhaps you should study it.

    • So your trying to tell me that the below quotes don’t exist in your Bible? Or are you now going to tell me that those DIRECT quotes don’t match up with your INTERPRETATION of what this supposed direct word of God states?

      And isn’t that the point, that you pick and choose what you are willing to believe, making the Bible no more infallible than any other text from the same time period?

      Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. — Psalm 137:9

      The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it. Proverbs 30:17

      And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. — Leviticus 26:29

      And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters. — Deuteronomy 28:53

      And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend. — Jeremiah 19:9

      Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly. Leviticus 25:44-46

      And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them 2 Kings 2:23-24
