So, last week I mentioned that lots of anti-gay Christians love to quote from Leviticus about homosexuality being an “abomination,” while the same chapter also condemns eating lobster. But guess what’s prohibited in the very next chapter? The chapter right after the one containing the verse tattooed on this guy’s arm? That’s right, tattoos! Talk about cherry-picking the Bible!
But here’s the thing. This would be really funny in a lighthearted, let’s-laugh-at-the-Christians kind of way, except for one thing. The guy in the picture? In the news video the pic is taken from, he’s defending a friend of his who was caught on tape nearly beating a guy to death for being gay. Religion can be silly, and ridiculous, and so self-contradictory (both in what it says and what it’s followers do) as to be absurd, but always remember: Religion. Is. Also. Dangerous.
(Nice catch from the Friendly Atheist, from whom I also snagged the pic)
