tora: (Hell's feathers)
While looking for good references for my next essay for American Lit I, I found a site of some interesting quotes. (Found here) There's several about God, Religion and Homosexuality. I grabbed a couple from the quotes on Religion that I might use in my essay but then for the hell of it, I went to look under the quotes on homosexuality and found this:

Chief Justice Moore, Alabama Supreme Court:

"...the homosexual conduct of a parent -- conduct involving a sexual relationship between two persons of the same gender -- creates a strong presumption of unfitness that alone is sufficient justification for denying that parent custody of his or her own children or prohibiting the adoption of the children of others.... Homosexual conduct is, and has been, considered abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a crime against nature, and a violation of the laws of nature and of nature's God upon which this Nation and our laws are predicated. Such conduct violates both the criminal and civil laws of this State and is destructive to a basic building block of society -- the family....It is an inherent evil against which children must be protected."

I'm not that surprised considering who it is that said such an idiotic statement but what bothers me more is that there are people that actually listen to and share this opinion. It's assholes like this that claim to be Christian that make me ashamed to call myself one.
