Reuters, 30 July 2015: An ultra-Orthodox Jewish man stabbed and wounded six participants, two of them seriously, in the annual Gay Pride parade in Jerusalem on Thursday, with police saying the suspect was jailed for a similar attack 10 years ago. About 5,000 people celebrating the event were marching along an avenue when a man jumped into the crowd, apparently from a supermarket, and plunged a knife into some of the participants, witnesses said. Police said they arrested the suspected perpetrator, Yishai Schlissel, an ultra-Orthodox man. Spokeswoman Luba Samri said he was the same assailant jailed for the stabbing of three marchers at a similar Jerusalem event in 2005. Israeli media said the suspect had been released from prison several weeks ago. The parade has long been a focus of tension between Israel's predominantly secular majority and the ultra-Orthodox Jewish minority, who object to public displays of homosexuality. Many devout Jews, Muslims and Christians criticize homosexuality as an abomination of their beliefs. Gay marriages performed inside Israel are not recognized by the authorities.
Ha ha ha. . .notice the second-to-last-line in the article:
Many devout Jews, Muslims and Christians criticize homosexuality as an abomination of their beliefs. . .
What the fuck is that all about? Why drag the poor Muslims and Christians into this gutter of religious hate?
I guarantee you if a Muslim or a Christian had stabbed the gays, you would not see a news story with a *disclaimer* indicating Jews also have their share of religious psychos. . .
Ha. . .Reuters, reporting on a Jewish terrorist, feels compelled to remind us many Muslims and Christians are *the same way*. . .ha ha ha.
Look, it's well understood that a lot of people, MANY OF THEM NOT THE SLIGHTEST FUCKING BIT RELIGIOUS, think homosexuality is an abomination. . .
Why not just word the article this way, if we feel we have to make sure the whole world knows this act of terror could have been committed by a non-Jew:
Many Jews and gentiles criticize homosexuality as an abomination. . .
Let's leave the *devout* and the *beliefs* out of it. Plenty of lukewarm religionists and average secular joes hate homos just as much as the ultra-Orthodox Jew Yishai Schlissel. . .
[One last thing, it seems to me Reuters is implying that *devout* Christians or Muslims who view homosexuality as an abomination would also therefore believe they are justified in trying to kill some gays frolicking in a parade, like this ultra-Orthodox Jew must have believed, based on Levitical Law. Can't speak for Muslims, but Jesus' ye have heard that it was said by them of old time sayings and His actions and teachings in John 8:1-11 clearly repudiate this.]
