Coinciding with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visiting the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Association center where Saturday’s shooting attack took place — a visit that is, frankly, impressive — comes word that Israel is not the gay-friendly place we’ve been led to believe!
If you want to believe the answers of roughly 500 folks polled by the newspaper Haaretz, 46 percent of them think homosexuality is a “perversion”; 42 percent said it isn’t. Not surprisingly: “The percentage was highest among Orthodox Jews, with 71 per cent believing it was a perversion. Sixty-four per cent of Arab Israelis and 24 per cent of people who described themselves as secular agreed.”
If only the Jews believed in hell, you’d all be going there.
