McKellen v. The Bible

ian-mck-1.jpg
Openly gay actor Ian McKellen may want to call a pow-wow with “artist” Charles Merrill.

McKellen’s apparently so incensed over Biblical condemnations of queers, he’s taken to tearing out offending allusions from hotel copies of the holy book.

Unlike Merrill, who uses Biblical destruction and Qur’an torching as self-publicity, McKellen understands the implications of his censorship mission:

[McKellen] accepts he should not vandalize the Bible, but finds it difficult to contain his outrage at the contents of Leviticus 20:13* when he spots the holy book in hotels. “It’s the one thing I find difficult to defend but do go on doing,” he said.

At least he’s not wiping his ass with them. Not that we know of, at least…

*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.”

      These bible fuckers always take the bits they want and ignore those bits they don’t like, like not eating shellfish etc etc.

      Good for Ian McKellen, there’s nothing sacred about a belief in a non-existent sky god. Believers should be mocked constantly and given NO RESPECT. And their risible “holy text” should, no must, be scorned and held up to ridicule.

      I’m not sure what good this is going to do. The people it’s intended to reach are only going to see the homo tearing pages out of their holy text.

      It’s fine if they put bibles on the science fiction racks in the library, but it’s wrong to put them in places where children and idiots might mistake them for something other than poorly written fantasy. I certainly hope McKellen’s not using the offending pages as toilet paper. That ink can cause a nasty rash.
