In my second career (doing ballet master class tours) I drive all over the country. Recently, in the Bible Belt, I drove past a series of billboards citing Leviticus 23:13 (the kill the gays verse) and some variant of the message “Homosexuality is an abomination– God.”
I do wonder how much God spent on this marketing campaign and whether he went through an agency. I would have thought he could swing at least a basic cable campaign, but I’m sure he knows what he’s doing.
I was reading a book today on a subject unrelated to religion (or billboards). It happened to mention another verse in Leviticus that I don’t recall hearing that often.
“The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.” (19:34)
I got to wondering why God hasn’t taken out billboards reading “Treat Mexican immigrants as fellow citizens.-God.”
Maybe he’s saving that one for the radio blast.
