Brazilian Soccer Player Wants You To Know His Homophobia Doesn’t Make Him Homophobic

Alex_Rodrigo_Dias_da_Costa_1“God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Yves.”

Brazilian soccer player Alex Da Costa is just full of wisdom like this, and he isn’t ashamed to let his opinions be known. But he should be.

Alex doesn’t consider his hate speech — like saying it’s not ok for two men to live together — to be homophobic. Speaking to Swedish paper Expressen, the athlete described his terrible logic:

“God says one should love all people for what they are. We love everyone but do not like those who do not stand for what the Bible says. But this is not about homophobia.”

Still homophobia, Alex.

Since Alex is so clearly devoted to the Bible as an eternal and static set of rules and guidelines for all people, we have to wonder how he feels about ham sandwiches:

“And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.” Leviticus 11:7-8

Or playing soccer matches on Sundays:

“Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” Exodus 31:14-15

Sorry Alex, you don’t get to cherry pick from the Bible to justify your homophobia as dogma. Try again. Or don’t.
