Laws against homosexuals produce one kind of fruit. Rotten ones.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Franklin Graham support Hitler's treatment of homosexuals, based on his support of the laws in Russia and the fruit of those laws.

What happened as a fruit of Hitler's anti homosexual regime?

Gay men suffered unusually cruel treatment in the concentration camps. They faced persecution not only from German soldiers but also from other prisoners, and many gay men were beaten to death.

Gays in forced labor camps routinely received more grueling and dangerous work assignments than other non-Jewish inmates, under the policy of "Extermination Through Work".

SS soldiers also were known to use gay men for target practice, aiming their weapons at the pink triangles their human targets were forced to wear.

The harsh treatment can be attributed to the view of the SS guards toward gay men, as well as to the homophobic attitudes present in German society at large.

The marginalization of gay men in Germany was reflected in the camps. Many died from beatings, some of them inflicted by other prisoners.

Nazi doctors often used gay men for scientific experiments in an attempt to locate a "gay gene" to "cure" any future Aryan children who were gay.

An account of a gay Holocaust survivor, Pierre Seel, details life for gay men during Nazi control. In his account he states that he participated in his local gay community in the town of Mulhouse.

When the Nazis gained power over the town his name was on a list of local gay men ordered to the police station. He obeyed the directive to protect his family from any retaliation.

Upon arriving at the police station he notes that he and other gay men were beaten. Some gay men who resisted the SS had their fingernails pulled out. Others had their bowels punctured, causing them to bleed profusely.

After his arrest he was sent to the concentration camp at Schirmeck. There, Seel stated that during a morning roll-call, the Nazi commander announced a public execution.

A man was brought out, and Seel recognized his face. It was the face of his eighteen-year-old lover from Mulhouse.

Seel states that the Nazi guards then stripped the clothes of his lover, placed a metal bucket over his head, and released trained German Shepherd dogs on him, which mauled him to death.

You see, It doesn't matter what your theological views are, Jesus would never support laws that marginalize or open up any person to abuse, period.

These acts in Russia displayed in this video go unpunished, the public at large that support these laws, which Franklin Graham is one of, look at these people as getting what's coming to them.

Do you really think this is as far as the abusers will go? Do you really think this is the worst of the abuse?

Do you realize that much worse has probably occurred and has not been filmed and shared and is kept hidden?

Anyone that calls themselves a Christian that supports these laws should be ashamed.

You can use the excuse that you support the "laws" but not this abusive behavior, but laws like these plant seeds in more than one person to do what's pictured.

It is not a fair trade.

Picture the woman caught in adultery as a lesbian woman, Jesus would have shown the same grace.

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

What if these same laws and this same treatment was directed towards gluttons, pride-filled, gossipers, vain, liars, cheaters, etc. which the church is filled with?

Which also incidentally scriptures devotes more time to speaking against

Christians wouldn't stand back silently, they'd be boycotting and starting facebook "I stand with" groups.

There would be outrage.

Christians get more upset over a damn movie than this type of sickening abuse of other humans.

If it's not clear enough, this is what my motivation is, I will not stand idly by as any human is abused.

I could care less what you call "sin" or don't call "sin", no one deserves this treatment, period.

The church's silence on these issues and their continued marginalization and looking down upon other human that were created in the image of God because of their theology is so disgusting.

I will not be silent no matter how "off path" people think I am.

I'll go to my grave and on to eternity knowing that I loved my neighbor of any sex, race, class, sexual orientation, religion, etc. and showed them possibly the only Christ they have seen.

I also know for a fact that my God is pleased with me and has directed this path I am journeying on.
