Man Stoned to Death for Homosexuality: Cops - Local News - Philadelphia, PA - msnbc.com (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42152129/ns/local_news-philadelphia_pa/ - broken link)

Quote:
Thomas told authorities that he read in the Old Testament that homosexuals should be stoned to death. When Seidman allegedly made homosexual advances toward him over a period of time, Thomas said he received a message in his prayers that he must end Seidman’s life, according to court documents.

Gays are capable of sexual harassment.

It appears this guy got sick of it and took care of the situation.

First of all, I can't imagine killing someone REGARDLESS.
Secondly, how does one take stuff in that old book serious? It's rather amusing, because in a way.. this guy technically WAS correct. But yet, how can killing someone be acceptable in a book that also says "thou shalt not kill"

Ah, the hypocrisy. You never can get a true answer from those people either.

I do feel for this man's family. Who knows if this man WAS hitting on this guy.. and how he was "sexually advancing" to him. EVEN if someone was coming on to you.. do you really kill them? Ugh. Society.

Stoning a guy to death was an appropriate response?

LMAOO!!!! So it's OK to kill someone for sexual harassment? LMAO @ YOU.

Women are also capable of sexual harassment to men. Surely your opinion would be different had this been a 28 year old stoning to death a 28 year old woman. Of course it would.

LMAO at people like you. Plague to society with your "views"

I did not say it was. All I said was the guy took care of the situation.

If it was that bad, reporting the police is taking care of the situation
Killing someone is murder; not taking care of a situation.

Your post implied it. What's your view on Christians using the Bible to do barbaric things?

the verse you are pointing to is actually properly translated as "thou shalt not commit murder". it still doesnt change the fact that what the kid did was wrong.
