Elton John stands up.

It seems it's now Ok to speak out about religion. We are starting to be heard. And that is a very good thing.

Last week we saw Elton John speaking out about the hatred Religion shows to Gay people:

"I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people," he said. "Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays."

He spoils it by saying we should ban all religion (though goes on to clarify that actually he just wants debate), but even then he has a point. In the UK we will soon have a law that forbids you to "incite religious hatred." A vaguely worded law that has the possibility of making debate and criticism difficult, but means well. People "inciting hatred" can be imprisoned.

Why shouldn't a law protecting homosexuals from hatred exist? And with passages like Leviticus 20:13 "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; their blood shall be upon them. it is clear that the bible insights homosexual hatred, and as such why shouldn't mainstream moderate religions themselves be held accountable for the hate that their "holy scripture" contains?

Unless of course this is another "metaphorical part" that we are meant to just forget about.

But Dubuis’ dedication to meticulous craft finish in the rolex replica Geneva tradition meant the watches bore the famed Geneva Hallmark and levels of refinement rarely, if ever, seen on rolex replica outlandish sports watches. And the finishing standard of these SAW watches is undeniable. Machine replica watches uk beveled, polished, and texture-grained movements from mass manufacturers have lulled replica watches uk today's watch lovers into a false impression of what fine finish is. Compare something outwardly impressive like an Omega Cal. 8500 to the Lemania-based RD 57 in a 2005 Easy Diver, and the difference between the two is replica watches breathtaking. Rounded (not sheer) anglage, "black" polish, jewel countersinks with mirror sheens, and rolex replica uk immaculate swan’s neck regulators embody the best of the Geneva tradition.
