So I posted this pic on Facebook last week and it went viral, reaching over 10 million people! A heated bible vs. gays debate ensued in the comments which I followed (in my waking hours) for two days. I’m no stranger to stupid homophobic comments as you can probably guess, but the sheer amount of ignorance being spewed on my page reached new heights. I usually just tut and roll my eyes to the “homosexuality is an abomination / a sin / a perversion / unnatural” and “God made Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve” drivel, but this time it made my blood boil – it wasn’t just an attack on our fabulous homosexuality, it was an attack on our ability to parent as well.
These people don’t “love the sinner and hate the sin”, they see us as defects and rejects who cannot function normally in society. And the worst part? It’s all because ‘it’s written in the Bible so it must be true’. Some know how to copy/paste what they deem ‘relevant’ passages of it to justify their hatred of the homo and loathing of the lesbian, others are like zombies, regurgitating the same crap over and over again. But, since I’m feeling the “peace on earth and goodwill to all men” jolly Christmas spirit, I thought some of their efforts to participate in the debate deserved a special award, and I wanted to share them with you.
The “stupid f’in cunt” award
Anthony believes in the Bible so much that he wishes Tabitha was dead. Anthony, I think the one with the birth defect is you.
The “negative IQ” award
Jessica wins an extra award for her excellent grammar… just sayin’. And everybody knows the world is only 2000 years old, it all makes perfect sense now. And racism has taken on a whole new meaning…
The “what a cock” award
Being gay or lesbian is WRONG! But gimme some of that lezzo porn to watch, lol.
The “pretty sure” award
Interestingly enough, “Amen” was probably the most common comment in agreement from people. But why only ‘pretty sure’ Julien? Surely you must know 100% if god approves or not, since you know him so well?
The “go F yourself” award
It’s a huge mess. A mess caused by the bible and the fear of burning in hell for all eternity. So while you’re out partying and getting shit-faced this Christmas, spare a thought for the little homophobes who are home alone, praying desperately for forgiveness for their sins (surely they masturbate more than any of us?) and scared out of their tiny, closed minds that they’ll be sent to hell and find all of us there!
