Shocking!! Death to Gays

The picture of this sign was taken at the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) rally in Indianapolis this morning, and it shows the kind of rhetoric that we are up against. Though I know that not all of those who campaign against us are this extreme, they need to realize the path that their logic ends at. Just look at Uganda.

The photo was originally posted by Bill Browning of Bilerico, which also has an enlightening video of the author of this sign.

The fact that the rhetoric of this sign comes directly from the Old Testament book of Leviticus has given me an idea for a future blog post. Look for a post in the next few days about the role of change within religion; such as how interpretation and tradition of sacred texts should change with the times, why tradition is so important to us, and what exactly is meant by the word "tradition". I have already written a short post on this, which can be found here, but in the next few days I will be reopening this subject and dealing with it a little more in depth.
