Let The Gay Pay?

Really now? in today’s Tell Me Pastor column a writer insists that gays must be put to death because the bible says so, I am glad that good sense prevailed through the pastor’s answer.

Funny how persons are quick to draw on the bible for their own agenda or what suits them and totally forget everything else as if alledged sins are not equal. At least this round he responds favourably and describes the writer as a nut (his response is in blue)

What you think?

Let the gay pay
Dear Pastor,
One of our major problems in today’s society is the willingness to yield to misconduct amid pressure. In times past, God gave strict orders for persons to be put to death for copulating with someone of the same sex, as with the opposite sex. In Jamaica today, there’s a daily increase in homosexuality, in all walks of life. Jamaica is known for its violently homophobic culture, yet millions here are becoming gays.
Don’t you think a law should be administered against homosexuals as they are already giving up their human rights by forsaking God’s command and lying with another man?
O.S., St Andrew, Jamaica

Dear O.S.,
You are a nut. Yes, a nut. It is only a religious nut who would advocate that homosexuals be killed. The Bible condemns homosexuality. It is clearly outlined that that lifestyle is not sanctioned by God. Two men should not have sex with each other. Neither should two women. But you don’t have the right to kill them.
The Bible says that women who commit adultery should be stoned. Would you be willing to stone our women (and men too) who have committed adultery?
