ADA: Homosexuality ‘Deserves the Death Penalty’

The American Decency Association, a ragtag bunch of Christian theocrats with a P.O. Box about an hour away from where I live, has gone full-on fascist in its latest missive, saying that homosexuality — and gossiping, weirdly — “deserve the death penalty.”

What Gobry hints at and Dr. Mohler affirms is that the basis of our sexual ethic is not simply church tradition; it is scripture itself. We aren’t just defending marriage – whether we call it natural marriage or traditional marriage or Biblical marriage – because it’s the way we’ve always done things. We have a much more firm foundation than tradition. We affirm marriage in the way that God himself intended it.

The church is not a Christian congress or Supreme Court. The laws of God cannot be overruled or deemed unconstitutional.

Of course, we ALL break those laws and being a homosexual doesn’t make a man a sinner any more or less than being a gossip. Both crimes deserve the death penalty, and only the one who relies on the righteousness of Christ can escape it.

These are the same people, of course, that scream TYRANNY when they aren’t allowed to force kids to recite Christian prayers. But killing gay people? That’s apparently part of their “freedom” too.

    Decency – You keep using that word…

    You know who else thought that homosexuals deserved the death penalty? Schicklgruber!

  • newfie

    Somebody should throw them in a hole and threaten to huck rocks at them for shaving their beards and temple hair, and listen to the hypocritical reasons why Levitic laws don’t apply to them.

    I think in that last paragraph they are making a (Christian standard) theological point, not an outrageous legal point. I.e., they are not calling for the US government to implement capital punishment for gays, they are saying that people who break the laws of God go to hell unless God forgives them; you can’t ‘earn’ salvation after breaking God’s law against gay sex any more than you can earn it after you’ve broken God’s law against gossip.

    Why do they always try to make their hell more attractive? All the chatty queers? Hell sounds fabulous!

    Eric posted what I was going to say. This is a harsh wording of a very standard theology. It’s not a call for secular authorities to execute gays.

    SLC (#2) – Who?!?

    And if a person gossips about being gay do they get stoned to death, then have Jesus resurrect them so they can get stoned to death again?!? Truly enquiring minds, couldn’t give a shit.

    Seeing as colnago80 keeps refusing to use the name “Hitler”, when he Godwins a thread can we say he’s “Yahwehvictoried” the thread instead?

    Whenever I see a group’s name contains the word like “decency,” or “constitution” I just know the group’s mission is to define “decency” or subvert the “constitution.”

    The ADA is biblically right. The bible says to kill lots of people.

    It’s gays, adulterers, blasphemers, atheists, heretics, apostates, nonvirgin brides, disobedient children, sabbath breakers, and others.

    It’s estimated that under biblical law, 99% of the US population would end up dead under a pile of rocks. That is quite the strategy for a sucessful country.

    But it isn’t all bad. That would take care of our fundie problem. They are all hypocrites and would end up stoned to death too.

    Shit, who knew my initial yawn would be contagious?

    Huh?

    …being a homosexual doesn’t make a man

    Psst. I’ve heard that women can be homosexual, too. I won’t say who, though. That would be gossip.

    Man, when did the American Dental Association get so hard core?

    d.c.wilson, thank you. I needed that.

    I assume that these folks do no work from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, yes? As I recall, working on the Sabbath was a capital offense.

  • sugarfrosted

    hey ed, can we get a filter that replaces “Schicklgruber” with something. I suggest it should be replaced with “Colnago80”.
