I think it goes without saying that, if you’re stupid, you shouldn’t try and use religion to justify anything. You just don’t have the mental acuity to do it. I guarantee you, you’re going to screw it up. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying if you’re stupid, you shouldn’t be religious. God knows, you probably need it more than most. I’m saying, you shouldn’t use it to try and justify your actions and beliefs.
Case in point….
This guy has been told that Leviticus 18:22 is germane to his beliefs about homosexuality. For those unfamiliar, here is the King James Bible version of his tattoo:
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Now, I said the guy had been told about this bible passage. How do I know he didn’t read it? Well, if he had bothered to read the Bible or even read all of Leviticus, he would have come across this passage – Leviticus 19:28:
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you.
Anyone else believe that applies to….oh…I don’t know….TATTOOS?
I feel one hundred percent comfortable in saying to this guy – “You sir, are a moron of the worse kind. Someone so stupid, they don’t even realize how stupid they are. You couldn’t spell “irony” if I spotted you the vowels – even the y.”
When people claim that we will eventually grow out of our bigotry and racism, I point to assholes like this guy. As long as people like him continue to breed and pass on their particular brand of The Stupid, we’ll never get rid of bigotry and racism.
