Hey Fundies: Lynne Cheney suggests Ruth (from the Bible) was gay
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 11:54 AM by blitzen
p. 158

The memory started a train of associations in Sophies mind: Tennyson in The Princess showing
Psyche and Ida in love; Clarissa, that purest of all pure heroines, who had only one true love, her
friend Miss Howe. And Ruth, yes, Ruth in the Bible. Almost the whole world assumed it was a man
to whom she pledged, whither thou goest, I will go, but it was a woman, her mother-in-law,
Naomi.
Sophie sensed someone standing beside her. She looked up and saw Lydia Swerdlow. I dont know
how I didnt see it before, Sophie said.
Perhaps you were blinded by thinking women incapable of bonding fast together, Lydia said.


Fundies and lurking Freepers: she also promotes handing out condoms to young women for pre-marital sex. See this thread for the condoms, as well as the lynching and burning of "whores and squaws"

1. Here's a great opportunity to start one of those...
emails that demand you to "forward to everyone in your address book within 2 minutes and something lucky will happen to you."

5. Not only is that unfounded, but who cares?
Statements like that are homophobic, because they insinuate that being gay is a negative thing or a choice.

3. Don't tell the fundies about the Song Of Solomon
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 12:11 PM by MikeNearMcChord
located also in the Old Testament, there are some racy passages in that book.

4. As my Bible Lit professor said...
"The Bible is a very dirty book."

6. After Adam and Eve, everyone in the Bible wore proto-Birkenstock sandals,
at least according to the artwork, so my theory is that all but those two were lesbian, even the men. Yep, that would mean Noah and his extended family were all lesbian, and so were Moses and Jesus. Even god is pictured sometimes as an old man with a long white beard, flowing robes, and yes, sandals, so...

7. bwaaahaaahaaaa
if Ruth was a lesbian, and based on that 'evidence' - you could make the same argument about Jesus

- he never married
- always in the company with men
