“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; blood shall be upon them.”

This is the common passage thrown about by some within the Christian community to justify their stance against homosexuality and gay marriage in America.

One group within that community, the Westboro Baptist Church, considered more of a cult than actual church, parades the passage around to funerals around the country, blaming the plights of America on the existence homosexuals.

The Westboro Baptist Church is the crazy uncle of the Christian community – the family member you avoid making eye contact with at Thanksgiving for fear of a long lecture about things no one really cares about anymore.
