To All the Card-Carrying Gay Bashers Out There
If we go based off the traditional story of Creation given to us in Genesis, God created everything; the heavens, Earth, light, dark, animals and humans. This story gives credit of creation to one supreme being. Today, almost 1700 years after the Council of Nicaea was held, we have "Christians" being hypocritical of their fellow brethren, particularly to the LGBT community. Today in Minnesota, State Representative Steve Simon asked "How many gay people must God create before we accept that he wants them around?" Representative Simon, this is a simple, yet profound question to be asking. Conservatives argue that homosexuality is an abomination to God, but if God is the ultimate creator of everything here past, present and future, how would this supreme being allow an abomination to go on? Leviticus, the same book that homophobes use to bash the LGBT community, also states that shellfish are an abomination to God. Here is the argument that I propose to end this ridiculous debate over gay marriage. Being that God is the ultimate creator of everything and we must live by his laws, we must ban gay marriage, but we also must ban everything in Leviticus. We must close establishments in this free market such as Red Lobster, Long John Silvers, Captain D's, Olive Garden and Joe's Crab Shack (not to mention all the small businesses that profit off of the shellfish market along the coasts). We must boycott "Deadliest Catch" on Discovery Channel and instead watch Ice Road Truckers on History Channel. Artificial crab meat is too risky, that must be taken off the grocery shelves, for it is spoken in the Bible, it is God's word and God is infallible. The alternate to this is that God is the creator, as we previously established, but not an ultimate creator. We have evolved into the complex species that we are today. I would argue that a homosexual is more complex than a homosexual based on the chemical attraction they have to the same sex because of the hormones, or lack there of, they possess. Homosexuality is not a choice, it is not a disease. If you truly live by the Bible, it states that God loves all of his creations. If we are to follow in his footsteps, we should extend the hand of human kindness to one another, no matter what their sexual preference is. We are not the ones to place judgment on ourselves when it comes to matters of "Gods' Laws", only the true supreme being is in a place to pass judgment. I for one do not believe in Hell, but if there is a Hell, I sure would pay to have a seat there to watch the pricks from Westboro Baptist Church get sodomized with their picket signs.
