Sure, let's talk about civility.


In this month's issue of "Compassionate Conservatives Who Want to Kill People Different From Them," we have our latest contestant:

"A friend recently sent me this article about a "gay-friendly" high school. If we were living in a biblical society, homosexuality would be punishable by death so such a school would be unnecessary. Although I'm against the special accommodations, perhaps this new trend of segregation will protect straight kids from these predators. With any luck, some radical will blow up the gay school. No, I'm not condoning vigilantism--I'm merely saying that it would be poetic justice."

In clearly unrelated news, someone on a left-wing blog somewhere used impolite language, so I guess that makes us even.

In a "Biblical society" anyone who did any work at all on the Sabbath - balancing their chequebook, grocery shopping, mowing the lawn, picking up the kids, would also be punished by death. (Exodus 31:14, 31:15, 35:2 and Numbers 15:32-34)

In this society, women would be nothing more than property. Men and women would get married when they are 12-13. Concubinage and polygamy would be perfectly legal. You would be expected to marry your dead brother's wife if he died.

Abortion would not be murder, but a minor sin fixed with a small restitution. (Exodus 21:22) (Actually, the notion that 1st trimester abortions are murder is a recent development. The Church didn't believe that a foetus was "ensouled" until a mother could feel it kicking, for most of Christian history.)

Somehow that escapes the wingnut crowd.

You can point that out a million times and it will never matter.

This despicable woman's view's are the reason gay friendly schools are established and badly needed across that wretched country (USA). I pity her poor children having to put up with her mind numbing stupidity and hate.

An update for those of you who wondered whether Mormons are Christians: they are. Thirty to forty percent of funds put up to stop gay marriage in California have come from the Mormon Church. http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/10/the-mormon-chur.html
