...for citing a verse from the Old Testament to demonstrate how Christians read the Bible selectively—they toss around the anti-gay bits, they completely ignore the kill-your-non-virgin-daughters bits (to say nothing of the slavery bits)—are going to jump down this professional boxer's throat, right?
Manny Pacquiao, who lives and trains in Los Angeles, is probably in deep shit in this liberal city of brotherly love. That's because the boxing champion said that gay men "must be put to death." Really. In a recent interview with the National Conservative Examiner the fighter quoted the Bible in relaying his feelings about President Obama's support for same-sex marriage: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." Um. Okay. He was quoting Leviticus 20:13.
Um. Okay. Leviticus 20:13 is from the Old Testament. Which, according to the screamers I heard from, isn't "germaine" to Christians. I expect that Pacquiao will start to hear from scores of outraged Christians in three, two, one... never. Via JMG.
