To err is human; to be gay is divine
Comedy Central produced this hilarious piece recently after a Baptist minister penned a controversial article arguing that genetics plays a leading role in causing homosexuality, a problematic viewpoint for the theologically handicapped on several levels.
Does that mean homosexuality is a creation of God? Should gay fetuses be altered in the womb? Should they be aborted? Should we love the sinner AND the sin?
It's been fun watching the fundies trip over themselves trying to make heads or tails of the minister's heretical declaration.
Of course, they'll find some way to weasel out of this conundrum. And if logic or the facts fail them, then they'll fall back on the tried and true "faith" argument -- "The bible says it. I believe it. That settles it."
Do people who use that phrase ever think about what they're saying?
