I was watching the show **Gaycation **on the new Vice network. It’s a fairly interesting show where the hosts travel to different parts of the world to check out gay culture. A couple weeks ago they were in Brazil, where they met up with a guy who made it his job to beat up and/or murder gays. This past week they were in Jamaica, where apparently it’s ok to throw rocks, beat up or otherwise terrorize gays. When asked why, the usual response is “It’s just not right” or “The Bible says homosexuality is a sin.”
That’s all fine and good, but for most things that are condemned by The Bible, it ends with a fiery sermon-- tell your flock that these things are wrong and maybe try to convert people to your cause, etc. But they don’t usually incite violence. I think it’s been quite a few years since, for example, an adulterer was stoned in the public square.
Is there something about homosexuality specifically that incites violent outbursts?
