Single-digit IQ on display

Posted on Updated on

This incredible display of stupidity has been doing the rounds, first reported by Andrew Sullivan here.

While the original story is shameful – a brutal gay bashing – one of the accomplices proudly displays a tattoo on his right arm bearing a biblical quote:

“You (sic) shall not lie with a male as one does with a woman.  It is an abomination.  Leviticus 18:22”.

The only trouble is that this moron doesn’t know about something in the very next chapter:

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:28″

There are some lessons to be learned from this episode, including:

  • Homophobes are morons.
  • Religious homophobes are even worse
  • If you’re going to cherry-pick bible passages, make sure they are consistent with the rest of the bible.
  • If you’re then going to tattoo them on your arm, make REALLY sure they are consistent with the rest of the bible.
  • If you’re hoping to escape a conviction for a brutal hate crime, then don’t display the bible passage on your arm, as if it’s a free pass to do what you did.

Hopefully the Lord’s punishment for the transgression by this nut-case is at least as horrible as that which he handed out to his victim.
