Support for LGBT equality is imminent in many countries, and right-wing religious conservatives are not happy that their perspectives are dying out. For some, this means blaring their vitriol louder and louder to make sure they’re heard. Vitus Huonder (below), the Bishop of Chur in Switzerland, is one of them.
In a debate on marriage and family held by the German Catholic Forum last week, Huonder didn’t stop at the phrases “traditional marriage” or “family values,” the way some conservatives do. He went all the way and cited Leviticus 20:13, the infamous verse suggesting that men “engaging in homosexual acts” be put to death.
