A Catholic bishop, Bishop Huonder, in Switzerland is facing jail time for “inciting people to crime or violence” after using the Bible to call for the execution of gays and lesbians. This was in August of 2015.
He used a famous quote from Leviticus 20:13 which says that a man lying with a man is an abomination, and they shall surely be put to death. The line is repeated in Leviticus 18:22.
Of course, he does NOT mention that Leviticus 11:10 says eating shellfish is an abomination, using the EXACT same word that Leviticus 18:22 uses to describe homosexuality. Of course, stopping people from eating shellfish would be stupid.
Catholics hate gays, mainly because they love to judge other people. As one of the most famous Catholic priests and authors says, “No issue brings out so much hatred from so many Catholics as homosexuality.”
Of course, Jesus never said anything about gays. Ever.
Of course, the pope did nothing to punish Bishop Huonder, but the pope has kicked priests out of the priesthood if they used freedom of speech to say they think women should be priests. Jesus also never said anything about that. Ever.
