    have a lot in common (besides the obvious fact that the two often equal each other)...but they scoff at facts and common sense and are constantly dripping with hypocrisy. America's pastors, ministers and priests have made an effort to vilify homosexuality and their ignorant sheep in the pews have been hit over the head with it. Can you imagine if these men of the cloth decided to pick another "sin" and railed agasint that ad naseuem...such as working on Sunday? Would those same sheep be so outspoken and belligerent? They are totally unaware of what the bible actually is or says. If you point it out (or that the story of Jesus is an exact copy of the the story of the god-man Horus that came before Jesus) they get angry, defiant and find some way to dismiss it. Maybe they stick their fingers in their ears and sing loudly to drown out the truth. Do these hypocrites realize that the following things are also considered punishable by death according to the bible?

    *working on a Sunday (so, almost everyone)*trimming your beard (hundreds of millions of people, especially hipsters) *eating fruit from a tree less than 4 years after planting (probably almost everyone in existence) * selling land permanently (so anyone who has ever sold their house or farmland) *wearing two kinds of fabric simultaneously (almost literally everyone. Ever.) *cursing your parents (more than would like to admit to it)*having a tattoo (so basically every athlete and millions of other "sinners") *committing adultery (over half the population..at least) *fornication or not being a virgin on your wedding night (probably 80% or more of the population)*plowing to the very edge of your field (sorry farmers!) Plus any number of other offenses such as being the first born son of an Egyptian family, not following "god's" specific rules about when a father can sell her daughter into slavery...however, if you rape a woman you aren't punished by death, just forced to marry her...according to the "lord's" law. Lovely.

    Just a sampling....and these self-righteous, myopic fools will continue to cherry-pick the verse/"offense" that fits their specific hatred or intolerance and think that they are justified and they will continue to be totally ignorant of what is actually in the book they worship.

    To be blunt, if you do not suffer from seriously diminished mental capacity or the personality disorder that is right wing extremism and still vote Republican...I'd double check on the two previously mentioned conditions.
