When 'phobes are more honest than is good for them

By now you may have seen this sign, shown at a National Organization for Marriage rally in Indianapolis:

sign calling for death penalty for gays, citing Leviticus 20:13, showing too nooses

We should do what we can to draw attention to signs like this. Those who display such signs have renounced whatever moral high ground they may have had and cannot hide behind "We're only doing it to defend democracy" or whatever this week's lie is. Such signs are also sure to outrage fence-sitters and thus do our work for us. Besides, those who know the Bible can have a bit of naughty fun with the question of why that is the only OT verse that wasn't "nailed to the Cross."
