That Didn’t Take Long

A tiger escaped its enclosure in the San Francisco zoo and killing one young man and seriously mauled two more on Christmas Day, just as the zoo was about to close. Our friends at Westboro Baptist had their press release ready to go the very next day:Westboro Press Release

Uh, happy Feast of St. Stevens (a.k.a Boxing Day)…

I think by now Christians are starting to realize that Phelps is only HELPING the gay cause by encouraging sympathy for our side.

So, back in the 1940’s when the enclosure was built, God encouraged the designer to make the wall too short, so a tiger would be able to jump out in 2007 and maul three guys. Righto.

On another note: Romans 1:23 doesn’t actually mention Bengal tigers. Tinkering with the word of God, Phelps? Naughty!

Don’t you mean Rom. 1:26?

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Of course, that passage is just brimming with pussy. Coincidence?

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:”

I always thought this was such a strange quote. “Vile Affections” could mean a lot of different things. Why “wink, wink”, “nudge, nudge” your way through a proclamation? If you’re going to condemn something, why be vague?

“…their women did change the natural use into…” The natural use of….what exactly? A toaster? A lawnmower? The endocrine system?

“…into that which is against nature:” again, vague. What’s “against nature”? Telephones? Dentistry?

“Thou shalt not kill” is pretty much clear to me. Granted, it doesn’t say who or what you shouldn’t kill, but I think it’s much clearer than any of the passages that seem to beat around the bush about gays.

Murder, genocide, attempted rape, children seducing their own father, nailing a man to a tree, polygamy, threatening to cut an infant in half, the bible is pretty damn explicit, so why the ambiguous language about homosexuality? I have a hard time believing what me and my partner do behind closed doors is worse than genocide.
