Kill The Gays NYC? Gays Should Die Says Pastor At NOM Marriage Rally

Is a “Kill The Gays” bill headed for New York City?

At Sunday’s anti-gay marriage rally in New York City, sponsored by the National Organization For Marriage, one pastor, Rev. Ariel Torres Ortega of Radio Visión Cristiana, told the several thousand people in attendance that gays should die.

Yes, according to this man of God, gay and bisexual men (evidently, not lesbians though,) should die. He did not state if he believed this should be coded into law, whom would be the judge, how proof would be obtained, and if this was a stepped program, i.e., if any homosexual act would automatically deserve the death penalty, or if there would be a “three strikes” provision.

What is especially troublesome is that this rally was headlined by New York State Senator and Reverend Rubén Díaz, who spoke just minutes after Rev. Ariel Torres Ortega. Senator Diaz certainly has the ability to introduce a bill supporting Rev. Ortega’s beliefs. What would prevent him?

We already know, according to a Diaz aide, that Senator Diaz does not believe in separation of church and state.

“And while the march and rally focused on the Christian message of ‘love,’ the event remained deeply homophobic, with speakers routinely condemning gay people as “sinners” and describing same-sex relations as something wholly unnatural or perverse,” reports Igor Volsky of Think Progress. “In fact, just minutes before Diaz took to the microphone to stress his respect for gay people, Rev. Ariel Torres Ortega of Radio Visión Cristiana said that the gay people are ‘worthy of death’,” Volsky writes, then quotes Reverend Torres:

Committing sexual acts between man and man. And receiving the retribution of the things that they have done from straying away. And because they did not take God in count. God gave them over to reprimand their mind to do things that are not right, being against all justice, fornication, perversity, aberrations, malignity…those who practice such things are worthy to death, not only do they do it, but those who also practice it. God bless this earth. That is the word of God.

This makes me happy because it shows America these peoples' true feelings… They start off all "proper" and then when they feel like their about to lose they unleash PURE EVIL as lasts resorts.

Y'know, I've read the bible twice, and maybe I just glazed over that part, cos if it didn't have Jesus in it I wasn't really interested (cos let's face it, he's the coolest thing in that book) but I never saw God tell anyone to kill the gays. Are they sure they're not talking about the Quran? I have not read that one, so I don't know…

There is Leviticus, which says something like don't lie with a man as with a woman or you'll be put to death… but Leviticus is *explicitly* the law *for ancient Israel.* It says so right at the end of the book. Are we in ancient Israel? No.

Ah, but don't forget dear, that to the perverted mindset of the religious reicht, they're exempt from all those silly limitations due to their ultra-pure piety and direct connection with their deity.

What he is a proposing is a hate crime to citizen of the USA. I recommend he be very careful with his words as he can easily be seen as someone orchestrating terrorist attacks on the gay population. He not only is going against the laws of the US, but also the laws of the bible in which he studies. Murder is a very large sin from the last I read the bible.

Once again, filthy religious mumbo-jumbo seeks to triumph over rational thought.
