A man in Portland, Tennessee apparently thinks that God’s voice isn’t being heard in this country anymore, so he spent a bunch of money to put up a billboard declaring that gay people are an abomination, like it says in Leviticus (though he didn’t quote the “stone them to death” part).
In Portland, TN, a towering billboard quotes a Leviticus passage from the Old Testament: “You shall not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
Ronnie Monday, a Vietnam veteran, is the man behind the message.
He commissioned the billboard and paid for it with donations from some friends. It has been up for four months.
“When the president came out and indicated that he thought that gay marriage was OK, that was pretty much the last straw,” Monday said…
Love it or hate it, residents will have to get used to it. The contract on the billboard has been renewed for another six months.“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. And he says it’s wrong. And in my opinion, that’s what it is, it’s wrong,” Monday said.
He also told a local reporter, “I thought God needs his voice out.” Yeah, the fact that it’s in the Bible isn’t nearly enough. He need a random yahoo to repeat it on a billboard. What makes me laugh about this is this: What did he think this was going to do? Does he think some gay person, or a supporter of gay rights like me, is going to see it and think, “OMG! God thinks it’s wrong? That never occurred to me! I better change my mind”?
